Hi Lis...It's been too long since I've heard from you...Did your meds assistance dry up.  Of those meds I only take Norvir to boost my Prezista.  If the state isn't kicking in, have you contacted the companies themselves?  I'll be thinking of you.  Hope things work out.

I don't know if this helps you much, but it might be an option.

Costco sells 3 of the 4 drugs you mentioned.  A 30-day supply is steeper than $5000/3 though... it's $2034.19 for a 30 day supply of the 3 drugs.  According to the information on this site, the Reyataz that Bristol-Squibb Myers is offering co-pay assistance of $200 on Reyataz, Gilead $200 on Viread, and Glaxo $100 on Epivir.  That would take it down to $1534.19 + cost of Norvir for one month.

Now that's not cheaper than $1667 a month, but it's less up front cost that buys you a month while you search for better options.

Dates are blood draw dates:

06/15/09: CD4 478 21.8% VL 1150 - high liver enzymes... looks like I may not be resistant
05/22/09: Fixed insurance, resumed medicine
04/17/09: Ran out of medicine, could not resolve insurance problems
04/01/09: CD4 773 28% VL 120 - high liver enzymes
12/01/08: CD4 514 23% VL 630
10/17/08 started Reyataz, Norvir and Truvada. -- possibly minor neuropathy, but otherwise okay.
9/10/08: CD4 345 17%, VL > 78K
8/18/08: CD4 312 18%, VL > 60K (considering meds)
12/19/07: CD4 550 28% VL > 100K (no meds yet)

Hi Lis,

I sent you a pm. I have 2 months of bactrim I can send you. I aslo take norvir and reyataz. I could probably spare a weeks worth of those if nothing else comes through.

Peace,
Dennis

lisbeth,

I'm on a different regimen from what you take so I really can't help with most of your meds but like Dennis I also have extra Norvir.
