There could be many med to treat ulcerative colitis, however you could read more information on this link: http://www.medicinenet.com/ulcerative_colitis/page4.htm#tocf, sections 4 & 5, but it would be recommended to seek medical advice before you change/switch meds, hope this helps?
corticosteroids, cyclosoprine, Remicade
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?
