READ THIS AND BE SHOCKED OR HORRIFIED
Delzicol = Asacol. Delzicol - the 'new' medication - is nothing more than a 400 mg Asacol tablet in a dissolving capsule. open it up and see.
I used to get 240 tablets for a $20 co-pay - 8 times a day for 30 days. I just paid $170 for 60 tablets to be taken twice a day.
AN ACT OF FRAUD HAD BEEN COMMITTED.
Maybe that's not so shocking or horrifying. I guess the pharma companies just don't make enough money. Private jets and golf cost money.
I think their justification is that, because they have taken out the DBP out of the Asacol, they need something else to make it resistant to stomach acid and so have put the tablet in this casing to help with resistance, so it is not 100% an old Asacol pill. However, I am sure this change cost them very little and this is where the shocking exploitation comes in, in my opinion.
