I Have Ulcerative Colitis
Currently taking Lialda-4 Pills in the morning, Canasa Suppositories at night. Given a script for probiotic, VSL#3 today.
Here’s My Story:
I was diagnosed with moderate ulcerative procitis in August 2010. My bleeding started in July 2010 and i did not go to the doctor right away due to being embarrassed and somewhat nervous. I had been on Rowasa with bad side effects and am currently taking Lialda and Canasa with no side effects. I have finally stopped bleeding but still am having cramping and frequent trips to the bathroom. Today the doctor gave me a script for VSL#3 and after three pharmacies i found one that would order it but insurance won’t cover it. Does anyone know of a cheaper way to get this? The doctor wants me to have 2 sachet packets per day (900billion). Is it worth the expense?
