Sep 30, 2012
DEAR DR.GOOD DAY I AM NON EGYPTIAN LIVING IN CAIRO-EGYPT
I STARTED TAKING VIRADAY SINCE FEBRUARY 2012 AFTER
DISCOVERING THAT I AM HIV + ON DECEMBER 2011
BY NOW THE VIRADAY WILL FINISH DURING COMING 10 DAYS AND I
SEARCHED A LOT TO FIND VIRADAY BUT IN VAIN
KINDLY ADVISE ME WHAT CAN I DO?
IS THERE ANOTHER DRUG LIKE VIRADAY?
IF I DIDN'T FIND AT ALL WHAT CAN I DO?
ANY THING TO TAKE?
PLZ I AM AFRAID MAYBE I WILL DIE !!!
Response from Dr. Henry
Viraday is the generic equivalent of Atripla in the US. I would recommend trying to obtain a refill of Viraday (perhaps through on online pharmacy)--there is not another one pill a day option that can be recommended. I strongly urge you to contact a local HIV expert review your various treatment options under the circumstances. KH
