Maybe there's some mistake here, but my 3 month supply of Asacol which normally costs right under $300, I think it just cost me around $80. Or maybe they accidentally gave me a one month supply. Or maybe the insurance company started paying a bigger percentage (ha ha ha, yeah right, I know)

Did anyone else notice costs going down?

Wow! I can't believe you are paying that much WITH insurance. With my insurance I pay $150 for a three month supply of Pentasa, birth control, and Nexium or protonix.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Well, I figured out the mystery: The price didn't decrease, instead I did hit my insurance "out of pocket maximum" for the year. That's good to hear!
