We pay $1,000 a month for insurance and have a $5,000 deductible, but it costs my husband over $700.00 a month for Asacol. We need an alternative also. He's taking Bromelain and Acidophilius (seems to help). Steroids are wonderful but cause him to have acute glaucoma (or something similar), so he can't take those now. Doc switched him over to Lialda but that caused flare-ups and more problems. Went back on the Asacol with immediate improvement. However, the cost is prohibitive. Any suggestions?
