what is the cost of atripla for 6 month treatment?
Jul 29, 2010

I want to buy a tripla for 6 month treatment,is the expiry date for short period and how much is going to cost me for 6 month therapy

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thanks for your question.

In the US it would cost about $1800 a month for Atripla..so 6 months would be close to $11,000. Why do you only need 6 months? If it is an insurance issue you may be eligible for assistance in the US through the ADAP (AIDS Drug Assistance Program) based on your income. The American Academy of HIV Medicne has a clearinghouse of Patient Assistance Programs set up by pahrmaceutical companies to help people pay for meds. They list the sites by drug name: http://aahivm.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=826&Itemid=177 Also many drug companies offer co-payment support cards.

Best, Joe
