Comment:
I was diagnosed 3 years ago with UC. Apriso put me in remission, but my hair began falling out in chunks. I had a lot of hair before being on Apriso. I reduced my dosage from 4 pills a day to 3 and then 2, but cannot maintain remission on 2. My hair is still falling out. Compared to three years ago, I am bald. I am working with my gastro to switch medication.

I tried 2 other drugs for my colitis, but this is the very best. Bowel movements are almost normal, no more running to the bathroom all the time.

On it for 2 weeks as a sample and what a difference! no symptoms at all so far! I picked up my first prescription and although it is expensive, my doctor gave me a savings/discount card just for Apriso-first one is free and only 10$ a month after that, and that is with my insurance too! Ask your doctor about the discount card-I didn't even ask, they just gave it to me with the samples
