Asacol comes in a variety of dosages, also in a extended releases forms. If you could provide info on the dosage, the amount taken i.e. 1 tab, etc. and how many times a day, it would be helpful to be able to assist you in finding a low cost.
We may also be able to help with other medications that the person takes, but only if you would like us to do that for you.
If you would like to give us a list, type of drug coverage currently carried, and any other info you feel is pertinent. We would be glad to assist you. Please remember though that these are suggestions that you would need to talk over with your doctor.
