noodlesnoodles I'm in Texas. The point isn't more clinical data IMHO. GI had samples, I tried it and noticed improvement after 3 days. Now 5 weeks into it, I'm nearing remission, so... why do I need to take a step backward and try something that may not work when I have something that does work?
The placebo effect is an actual well documented effect. Insurance companies go with these policies because of the big picture they are good decisions for the patients and the insurers. I’m not talking about
your case, I’m talking about
all of the insurance company’s cases. Entyvio has better statistics in treating UC.
Because your GI didn’t follow the procedure setup by your insurance company now your GI is going to have to jump through hoops to get you Xeljanz.
