Re: Switching from Atripla to Complera
May 12, 2012

Thanks for your help, I'm about to switch from emtriva to epivir next week. (and can still look forward to when Atripla is finally available here) Epivir is actually covered by the state insurance here (as are the sustiva and viread) so now I will save 500 dollars a month thanks to you! I consider myself well informed about these things (thanks to The Body) but had somehow overlooked the fact that emtriva and epivir were very similar and somewhat interchangable. Unfortunately my doctor never informed me of this expensive detail and let me continue to buy the Emtriva for 4 years. Just goes to show how important it is to continue to educated ourselves about HIV! Thanks again!

Response from Dr. Young

Wow. That's very significant savings.

I'm very happy to have been of assistance to you-- stay in touch, let us know how things work out for you.
