I had an allergic reaction to taking this medication and stopped use after 3 weeks. Bad joint pain, cough, swollen tongue and hair loss. 2 months later and my hair is still falling out.

Further to my last e-mail, I have now been on Apriso for two years (since July 4, 2010) and have not had a flareup. My doctor advises that I keep on taking it and said I could try reducing it to 3 tablets rather than 4 a day. I am sticking with 4 tablets. I also take the probiotic Align with the Apriso and the two have worked for me.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with UC in my entire colon a couple of months ago at 7 months pregnant. Tried Lialda, but it gave me severe stomach pain. Switched to Apriso and it has worked wonders. It took about 3-4 weeks to get into remission. Not bad at all! The pills are a little hard to swallow because of size, but it's worth it to feel "normal" again!
