cheaper drugs from oversea airmail
Sep 24, 2006

i read one article where someones insurance isnt paying for there meds, mine also stopped paying when i reached my limit for the year which sadly was only $1500.00 , i have found that i can purchase my meds in generic form on the web throught a website they get them from cipla out of india which also supplies the clinton organization with meds for third world countries, ive ordered several times and have had no issues getting them through airmail, saves me about $500.00 a month. I hope that someone will come up with a generic truvada as i pay for this out of pocket currently. Any word on when the once a day truvada/sustiva pill will be out and how much and or the actual name of it?

Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello, and thanks for posting.

This web site may be a useful resource for people who need medications but are uninsured or underinsured. Unfortunately, there are increasing numbers of people with HIV infection who find themselves in this situation.

Once daily Truvada/Sustiva is available now and is named Atripla.

Thanks again for the information.

Lipo and Anxiety...
Should I switch my regimen to Atripla?
