Thanks for your post.
I'd start by asking your pharmacy this question; also check around with different pharmacies-- you'd be surprised to find that the prices sometimes differ.
Lastly, get in contact with your case manager or AIDS Service Organization. It is possible that they may be able to help you with your financial situation.
Best of luck, BY
