So, had my GI appointment on Monday (early mild flare). Still on Uceris for two months and wants some blood work done in 2-4 weeks and as you KNOW what is coming in my future….another Colonoscopy! Grr! Number 4 in the books. LOL While I was there, I was given a pamphlet of biologics along with Xeljanz which comes in a pill form. (have had bad reactions to Colazal, Imuran, Lialda). No way will I consider biologics if there’s a pill I can take! She had asked that I look into these options and get back to her. I am taking my normal daily supplements along with just the Uceris right now (Anucort HC is done thank God! LOL).
I looked on GoodRX for Xeljanz and almost had a heart attack! Of course it would have to be an expensive drug! If so many are taking it, has to be a less expensive option? Right?! I haven’t checked with my insurance company as of yet and know I wouldn’t be paying in the thousands but still even $100 a month (throwing numbers out there) it is still up there. HMM Are there any discount cards offered at the doctor’s office or from the drug company one can get? Anything you can tell me would be appreciated! The good, bad and ugly. Hope your day is moving right along ….in a good way! LOL
