I had such kind of thread some time ago.  And someone told me that it is not a problem to order such a generic Atripla from Canada.  He mentioned to me that they are both the same except some minor differences.  My Atripla costing me $2300 for thirty days supply and this one is only $250 which are nearly 10 times less.  Therefore, if it is believed they do have the same effect, there can not be any other reason why you don't resort to this meds.  I also called to the co in Canada and raised the same question.  And they told me the same thing.  And I saved the info if in case I am forced not to have the meds due to ADAP waiting list or other.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Lancaster.
If you scroll down the menu, you can see the search function and search "generic atripla" to read more threads on this topic, if you are interested.
You should know that the drugs are NOT Canadian, but Indian, and it's called Viraday and produced by Cipla.  You can google that, too, if you want!
Its a pharmacy in Canada, that's all.
Most reports to this forum say that the Indian generic works fine.

There have been a few threads about this where you can find more info.

You can do a search for "generic Atripla" or "viraday" or "Canadian pharmacy"

Viraday, which is generic Atripla manufactured by Cipla is perfectly fine. Make sure you are able to get enough of it and are able to get timely refills so that once you start it you don't have to stop or take treatment breaks.

There are some pharmacies that have it for even cheaper than what you found, the info should be in one of the threads if you do the searches.

There is generic Atripla called Viraday and it's manufactured by Cipla, a reputable company in India.

I think when he says "Canadian" what he means is that it is sold online through various online pharmacies, many of them Canadian.

Joey - how long have you been using it? Do you find it to be just as effective?

Thank you
