...because I want to be DONE with Asacol and move on to Apriso. I almost forgot my noon doses today and yesterday. And yesterday, I had to take it in front of a customer of the company I work for (I'm not in sales, so I don't say my customer). It was kind of uncomfortable...we were having lunch, and I didn't have a bottle of water or anything that I could stick in my bag, then take in the restroom to take my meds.
Anyway, I went ahead and got the Apriso filled so I'd have it on hand when the Asacol runs out (my pharmacy has to special order it as not enough of their customers are on it to keep on hand). It's a MASSIVE pill! I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since one of them is basically equal to three Asacol. Good thing I can swallow big pills!
