FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: DELZICOL

User Comments:

For Ulcerative Colitis, Maintenance “I’ve used this drug for several years. It was first prescribed under the name Asacol. Delzicol is exactly the same drug but is delivered in a different capsule. I suspect that before the patent expires April 13, 2020, the greedy pharmaceutical company will find a new method to deliver the same drug thereby killing any chance of a generic becoming available. I’m fortunate to have a Medicare plan that covers this drug with a $45.00 copay. However when I reach the donut hole at the end of the year, the copay is close to $400. But even that beats the price of over $600.00 retail. The good news is that the drug does work for me. I hope others are relieved as well.”

For Ulcerative Colitis “I am overjoyed with the effects of this drug. Starting two weeks after my Delzicol treatment began I became completely symptom free of ulcerative colitis and have stayed that way for over two years.”

For Ulcerative Colitis, Active “Have been taking the delzicol for 7 weeks and still not working as does ASACOL. 700 dollars later, who do I complain to…I need Asacol after all. Has only calmed things, still unable to eat most things and see no future for me and delzicol.”
