I have it in my other thread but my biggest concern right now is finding these meds cheaper.

Right now WITH insurance Asacol for 400mg 180 pill bottles is 250 as is Rowasa.

I found the Asacol for 150 in Canada - not sure how reputable that is? How about a place to find Rowasa???

Can anyone say that buying Asacol, generic or brand, online is safe? Canada pharmacy online or otherwise?

I use the mail order program thru my insurance and pay $60 for a 3 month supply. When I used a regular pharmacy it was $100 a month with insurance.

When I was first diagnosed I ordered Canasa through which was way cheaper than what the drugstores around my area were charging. I had to order three months minimum. It was another brand name, but otherwise the same as canasa and, at the time, it worked very well and I was satisfied. I think all I had to do was order online and fax the RX from the doc and they arrived pretty quickly afterwards.
UC diagnosed 10/05, first symptoms 1983
asacol 12/daily and rowasa as needed 
Trying out Culturelle Probiotic
past rx: colozal, lialda, canasa
i can't complain, but sometimes i still do.  lifes been good to me so far.  -joe walsh
