Just started Uceris today. Anyone else on this having a reduction of symptoms? My dr. Prescribed 3 pills a day and since my insurance doesn't cover it, that's 3k a month. On some free samples right now after some shameless begging. Anyone having swelling or insomnia? That's always been my problem with Pred.
standard dose is 1 9mg uceris per day. i don't know what your doctor is doing but he might want to read up on the drug a bit more.
also a 90 day supply (90 pills) of uceris cost my insurance 3400, so that sounds about
also this is a not nearly as systemic as prednisone, you shouldn't have nearly the same side effects as prednsione, then again if you triple dose, I can't be certain
