Hello, Jerry! How are you? I'm very sorry about the price increase.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer was recently acquired by another company, UCB Pharma and the assistance program for this medication has been temporarily discontinued. That may also explain the price changes.

Dipentum is classified by the FDA as being an anti-inflammatory medication that's used to treat inflammatory bowel disease and ulcerative colitis. Its typical side effects may possibly include headache, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite.

Have you tried speaking with your doctor to see if there is a cheaper alternative medication that you can try?

The cost of dipentum has become unaffordable. With supplemental insurance my part was $635 for 120 capsules, without insurance $1500.00, doubling a shocking amount the month before. The donut hole looms much quicker. This drug is $11 to $13 each in the US and less than $1.00 each in Canada. The US has slammed the Canadian possibility door shut with Canadian assistance and policies. To a person on a fixed income the choices are slim to none as to what a person is to do.
