As a further to my previous review:(have been taking Apriso for about six months and have not had any flareups. I was taking Entocort but my doctor had me switch to Apriso and am very satisfied. Apriso while expensive is about one third the price of Entocort. I read it is for use for up to 6 months but now I see many people have been taking it for much longer. On May 27, 2011, after taking Apriso for 10 months, I had a colonoscopy and my doctor reported that my colon had actually improved since I was on the medication. I currently take 4 tablets a day and my doctor said I could cut down to three if I wanted to. I asked him about the long time side effects of Apriso and he said he knew of none. The only side effect I have experienced is joint stiffness in the morning which usually subsides within twenty minutes. I will keep taking 4 tablets a day.

I have UC and suffered a year long flare up. Asacol was not keeping it at bay, Prednisone was no longer able to put it into remission. Went on Remicade which was fantastic and on Apriso for a daily maintenance. It's easy since it's only once a day and it seems to be OK. I'm about an 8 out of 10 for symptoms, so no complaints. I really can tell the difference when I forgot to take my pills in the morning. I would recommend giving Apriso a try.

my insurance does not cover this medication, but I was given a 3 week sample supply of it, and by the END of week three, my symptoms had decreased by 80%!!!!!! Now I am taking Asacol and I am in SO much pain and I have ALL of my symptoms back.

Further to my last review of June 7, 2011, I have had no flareups for 18 months now while taking Apriso daily. My doctor has instructed me to keep taking it and I will. The only side effect is occasional stiffness. I also take Align, a probiotic everyday. Using the two has worked well.

I started taking this medication in January 2011 and it worked for me immediately - I felt 120% better than I had in years. No more cramping/pain. It is a miracle drug as far as I am concerned :) It is (unfortunately) very expensive.

This is my third drug. The first one was OK until I stopped taking prednisone. The second one made me vomit. On this one I am no longer taking prednisone and so far have no side effects. Things are not back to normal but sure are better than they have been.

This medicine has saved me. It took about 3-4 weeks. I have been on it for over a year and can't imagine life without it. Recently had throat surgery and couldn't take it for a week. Man I suffered. Glad to be back on it. Downside: Pills are so big and it is so expensive.
