“I have a chronic and difficult condition called ulcerative proctitis. To manage the condition, I use a drug called Salofalk. The cost for a 30-day supply of the U.S. version, Canasa, is almost $1000. I cannot afford it, so I’ve had to purchase it through Canada drugs where it costs just under $300 for a 90-day supply of Salofalk. I don’t understand why the same drugs are so expensive for patients in the U.S. when they are so much cheaper right across the border in Canada and in other countries.”

Patients For Affordable Drugs will collect patient stories and amplify the voices of patients to make policymakers understand the heavy toll of high priced drugs.
