I have been reading over old threads, but I still have a few questions.
1. I am seeing some people talk about the dosing be lower for RA than it is for UC. Are some of you staying at higher dose for longer than 8 weeks? I was on 21 mg for 60 days, then am on 11 mg once a day. Saw an increase in symptoms from virtually no symptoms. (Yes, yay, I was feeling almost normal again the last week or two on 21 mg.)
2. Are any of you seeing the pills in your stool? After dropping the dose, I have seen them in my stool twice in the one week.
3. Are there copay/out of pocket assistance programs like with Entyvio? My out of pocket is almost 3k, so the assistance with Entyvio was super helpful.
4. Did you docs make you go on more meds for elevated cholesterol? My triglycerides were the biggest thing that is high now.
