Since my symptoms have not changed in the past month and I actually feel worst, I called my GI’s office. I explained the symptoms I was still having and he stated we will need to increase your prescription intake. With the drug Apriso, instead of taking 4 pills a day, he now wants me to take four pills in the morning and two in the evening. So now, drum roll . . . . . . 8 pills a day!! yay! Gotta get a refill, asap! I’m starting to feel like treatment for UC is a guessing game?!?! . . and oh so expensive! This is just the beginning . .
Also, I have to see my GI in a week for evaluation. I have a feeling that possible blood work, and other medical testing will occur. I’ll do what I gotta do to get healthy. I’m just glad that my GI took the time to call me back . .
