I go to see my UC doc next week, due to a flare-up. Since i have no medication at the moment, I am going to obviously ask for a prescription. Here's the issue--i'm poor!!! I've always been on Asacol, and that stuff is expensive! So I'm wondering if anyone has expereince with any similar mesalamine oral drugs or ozasalazine that're cheaper than asacol.
I tried sulfasalzine when i was first diagnosed, but it made me start throwing up, so I'm pretty sure I'm intolerant to that. I want to be able to get a prescription for a drug that has a GENERIC available, but perhaps works like asacol...any suggestions for drugs I should ask my doctor about? Thanks!!!!!!
Ulcerative Colitis, dx in 1998 at age 18
Rowasa morning and night, Asacol 2x4
Allergic to Sulfasalzine
Now I take no meds or supplements (but some asacol on-hand if I feel a flare-up coming on)
