I have recently moved to Sydney from the UK. I was diagnosed with UC a year ago and ever since taking 2x1200mg daily of mezavant xl, the disease has been in remission. Today I went to the doctor who prescribed me Salofalk 500mg and has recommended that I take 2 in the morning and either 2 or 3 in the evening. I am very disappointed that I cannot get Mezavant as I was taking 2 tablets in the morning only and now I feel that having to remember to take this at night is yet another lifestyle adjustment.
Would it be a problem to take Salofalk in the evening if I was drinking alcohol?
Obviously my biggest concern is that I am changing meds and I don't know how this is going to affect me. Prescriptions are very expensive here and if I take 5 tablets a day I will have to spend more. If I take 4, I worry that I won't be getting enough medication. I really don't know what to do. Does anyone have a similar experience?
