At the beginning, I thought, ‘I’m so happy MYCAPSSA exists for patients in general,’ but for whatever reason, I thought it wasn’t for me. But after hearing the experience of patients who’ve been on MYCAPSSA and how pleased they are with their results, it was exciting and really motivated me to talk to my doctor and call CAPS. It gave me hope and I realized, maybe it is for me–what could I be missing?
