Dr Young responded to a question on Zidovudine + lamivudine + nevirapine vs Forstavir -3 where he expressed no knowledge of Forstavir. I know it as a supposed equivalent (generic) of Atripla. It is manufactured in India. I have used for close to 4 months now and have seen satisfactory results so far. It is also significantly cheaper than Viraday.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for the clarification.

The names of generic formulations of HIV medications can sometimes be difficult to ascertain here.
