Cost of Atripla
Aug 31, 2006

I read, right after it was approved, that Atripla would cost around $1150.00. I just talked to my phramacist (Walgreens) and was told it would cost $1450.00 (without my insurance). So buying Sustiva and Truvada seperately is cheaper. Is this pricing the standard nationwide (I'm in Houston, Texas)? Do you have any information on pharamcies that offer better prices?

Thanks!

Response from Dr. Wohl

The wholesale price of Atriplais the same as Truvada+Sustiva. If you are being told that Atripla costs more, there seems to be a mark up somewhere. Check out another pharmacy.
