Cost of Atripla in Thailand General information
      #269430 - 12/05/12 09:28 AM

I am currently receiving Atripla at a cost of $108.00 per month in Bangkok, Thailand. I have been positive for the last 6 years. The cost for me on Medicare in the USA would be $1200.00 per month. I make one trip each year and bring back to USA all necessary meds----No Problems

Glad you are able to do that . Most folks aren't that fortunate.

Interesting! Would you be able to share the gritty details of how to go about doing this? Can you carry a year's worth of pills across customs without hassle? What about generics, could you get Viraday?

just a guess but I suspect it is Viraday he is talking about, you can get it delivered to Thailand buying online for about that price - $600 for 6 months supply

I wish the OP would come back and explain a little more of the details, as far as I know you cannot buy Atripla at that price here in Thailand

I live in Thailand and you can buy the brand name Atripla for around US$90 for a month's supply (30 pills).

That price is from the Anonymous Clinic in Bangkok run by the Thai Red Cross. You do however need a prescription from a Thai doctor -- which you can get at one of the many private hospitals in Thailand. My ID doctor costs around $100 a visit and he gave me a 6 month prescription.

You can also get Atripla for a bit more at the same private hospital you see your doctor but it'll cost you like 50% more depending on the place.

You can also get your blood work done at the Anonymous Clinic for cheap.

Thx for getting back - that is very good news indeed

I have since confirmed and will be looking for alternatives to what I'm doing now


perhaps you could go into more detail about perscriptions etc and who you recommend as a competent doc -

regards

Hi everyone in Bangkok.

This is the website for the Thai Red Cross http://www.trcarc.org
I just sent them an email asking if their services are available to us westerners and it seems the answer is YES. This is what they say;

You can just walk in to contact with any officer who can speak English and purchase the HIV medication at the
Anonymous Clinic, the Thai Red Cross Society
104 Rajdamri Road
Pathumwan District
Bangkok 10330

The Anonymous Clinic is located on the opposite side of the AUA Language Institute .

Tel. (+66 2) 256 4107
Fax: (+66 2)2547577
www.trcarc.org<http://www.trcarc.org>

With regards,

International Relations Officer
Administrative Bureau

I asked about the cost of Atripla and am waiting for a reply to that.
At the BNH in Bangkok I asked the average price and this was the reply;
Further to your inquiry, ATRIPLA costs about 236 THB per tablet . This cost does not include doctor’s fee and 200 THB of hospital service charge.

I hope this helps.
