Been taking Pentesa for years. Had Doctor switch me to Asacol but the co-pay is the same so am considering Balsalazide. Have not had any major flairs in years. Had bowel resection 5 years ago and last colonoscopy (2 years) showed full remission. What can I expect and is it worth talking to my Doctor about? Is it worth taking? Co-Pays for 12 prescriptions (20 pills plus 4 inhalation presc for COPD) taking toll. Also, having pain issue from Fibromyalgia, pinched nerve and inflamatory arthritis. Too young for this!!
