    Been taking tis drug for over 12 years without any flareups. I have no noticeable side effects and believe this drug is keeping my colitis in check. This drug helped me get off of long time steroid use.

    I've taken Dipentum 15+ years and it has been the most effective med I have encountered for UC. There have been no side effects, as with prior meds for me. I've had UC since 1986 and suffered with other meds-I found this med the BEST!

    This medicine has worked well for me for over ten years. However, the price has nearly tripled (to $581/month) since last year. Has anyone else experienced a similar price increase? (Note: I have a high deductible health plan)

    I was on the original clinical studies of this drug in 1983. It was the only drug that I could tolerate and helped me with some very difficult times. I still take it today because every time I attempt to either reduce or stop it , I start getting sick again. Today there are more sophisticated meds but I still find Dipentum the best, not too strong, few side effects and it works. No one, including many doctors don't believe that I was ever so sick with this disease. I do wish though that it were cheaper.

    I've been taking Dipentum to help control my flares for 18 years now, and have only minimal side efeects. Couldn't be happier with the results.

    I was having chronic diarrhea for several months and chronic cramping. My symptoms have almost totally changed for the better. The only problem is the cost! I have no insurance and it runs almost $250 a month.
