Can't afford atripla, can afford generic listed on Canadian pharmacy
Jul 11, 2008

Have been taking Atripla for the past 90 days and am doing great but failed to qualify for ADAP, living underground so-to-speak for quite some time. Might can afford a generic I saw on a Canadian pharmacy. Is this available for people like me living in the US.

Response from Dr. Henry

Sad situation that speaks poorly about the US health system. No Atripla generic equivalent is available in US. Generic AZT is available so a regimen of AZT + 3TC and nevirapine is to my knowledge the least expensive triple therapy that can be purchased in the US (if anyone knows otherwise please post!!) but the cost can still be in the $1000/month range even at discounted prices through a public hospital/clinic.
