I was on Atripla +Ziagen (300mg) for past two years, and now new Dr. has taken me off Ziagen. I have a year's supply--unopened, sealed, unexpired -all good. Dr. says throw them away. Seems terrible to me...can't I donate them to some good organization?

Hello and thanks for your post.
I'd contact your local AIDS Service Organization (look up TheBody.com's ASO Finder ); most have community medication banks.
