Never throw away your pills till they expire. A hard lesson I learned. Doc's want to switch up medicines. If its not expired, put it in a safe place and wait. You might just get put on it again and have to purchase it again. I keep a air tight tote in a closet in the bathroom, of course there are no kids in the house so....
Hope you start feeling better tiggertenn, funny letter. Least You have a "friend" to blame hairloss on. I guess MY mom's family gets the blame fo that one since I lost just about all my hair at around age 22 or so. Lot of years before UC. LOL Dang genetics.
