Are you taking an oral meslamine pill? Lialda is nearly a thousand a month ($900-something).
Often people with high deductible plans or no insurance order their medications from Canada. It's been asked a number of times before. Here's some posts on it:www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=2751917www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=2672304www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=38&m=2912926
I believe you need to fax/email the prescript
ion to Canada. You don't have to tell your own doctor where you're getting the medicine from. Just need a paper prescript
The other thing to consider is how often do you see your doctor and what does that cost ($140-225)? Are you going to need any diagnostic tests (colonoscopy $1500+, sigmoidoscopy $400+, blood tests $75-200-ish) are you anemic and might need iron infusions, need hospitalization due to a flare if uc etc. It depends on your uc case history, disease severity, etc. If your disease is mild and well mannered then it might be less of a concern for you than it is for some of us.
