I'm 28 and was diagnosed with UC 6 months ago. I started on Apriso immediately. I misread the dosage and have been taking 1 pill in the am instead 4.

I tried 3 doses as samples to replace Pentasa (which gave me headaches) and they were ok. But the day after I paid $60 for a prescription of Apriso (no coupons available) I started a "acute intolerance syndrome" - cramping, headache, stomach pain and bloody diarrhea.

I started taking Apriso several years ago (4 or 5?). I have had a couple minor flare-ups, all when I waited too long to visit the doctor after a prescription ran out. Once I got a new prescription and started taking it again - all better! Overall I would say this has made a GREAT improvement in my life. I take 4 pills in the AM, which is so much easier than having to take Asacol all day long.

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.
