anyone on viraday here?
« on: June 04, 2010, 04:23:14 PM »
hi guys:

i found out i am hiv+ in april 2010 and my doctor immediately put me on atripla.  good news is it worked!  my cd4 went up from 60 to 130 and my vl went down from 256,000 to 724 in just one month.  bad news is i have limited insurance coverage, i can't afford to buy atripla on my own, and my adap has not yet pushed through.  so now i am taking viraday, which i obtain from canadian-based online pharmacies.  is there anyone out there who has also been taking viraday? how are your cd4 and vl?  i really would like to have some solid information that viraday really works in just the same way atripla does...

thanks

I am not on Atripla, So I can't answer your question.  However, as I understand it, Cipla makes good generic drugs.  When Others read this, they can chime in. Where you located at ?

I responded to Joey's post elsewhere, but I will also say here that I have been on Viraday for over a year after being on Atripla for 3 years. My VL has remained undetectable and my CD4+ actually doubled from 300 to 600! It had been stable at around 300 for most of the 3 years I was on Atripla, but for the year I've been on Viraday it's actually been increasing, so I'm definitely very happy with it. (And the cost at less than 10% of Atripla is an important factor, too!)

Yeah...

I am on Viraday...over 2 years...my CD 4 over 800 and VL - ND.  NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT SINCE SWITCHING FROM ATRIPLA.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND VIRADAY AND VONAVIR...I HAVE USED BOTH.  I use Viraday cuz its a better price and more widely available.

See my post here about www.jandrugs, betterlifepharmacy.com, aids-drugs-online and www.hivgenericdrugs.com
