Excess Medication
      #247727 - 09/26/09 03:20 AM

I have excess medication such as Lexiva, Epzicom, Metformin, Lipitor, and Tricor. I wonder what I can do with it? Sell it? Give it away? or Throw it away. Its all unopened bottles. Please help! Send me IM.

Hi Rich!
There are organizations you can donate unopened bottles of HIV meds to and they ship them to places like Africa, latin America and other 3rd world countries where patients do not have access to many anti-retrovirals. I found 3 via google :

515 Greenwich Street, #506
New York, NY 10013
(212) 337-8043

Other Drug Recycling Programs
HIV Medicines for Guatemala
Dr. Matt Anderson
Montefiore Family Health Center
360 East 193rd Street
Bronx, NY 10458

African AIDS Network
Lee Wildes
(415) 440-3722

I personally have had no contact with these organizations, so if you contact them maybe you could post how it went!
Good Luck
