Thought I would refresh this thread one more time, so it comes up in new posts.
If anyone needs a bottle (maybe 2) of Intelence, contact me by PM.  Otherwise I shall soon donate it elsewhere.
Best!

I quietly inquired what my dr office does with unused medicine - trash!
Its a pity - 2 bottles of new Intelence.
I realize its not the most popular drug, but doesn't anyone need some?
Where could I send it abroad to be used?

One of the most disturbing thing about this is that one (including myself) will mostly end up donating to organisations based in the US, while the US (the richest of the large nations) is not the country that needs it most (as a country, I mean... of course individual need can not be differentiated by origin/living area)

Isn't that ironic ?

I read the info on that site and it seems they are not limited to redistributing in the US.

Yes, indeed.  The FAQ says:

"1. What does AFA do with the donated medicines?
AFA currently provides lifelong antiretroviral (ARV) treatment and treatment education (secondary prevention, side effects management, adherence support) to over 550 HIV+ individuals (mostly in Latin America and the Caribbean) who would not otherwise have access to these life-saving therapies. We have a waiting list of 300 more, and it grows larger every day.

Through our AIDS Treatment Access Program, we also work to empower our clients to become their own health care advocates and activists. And we cultivate and maintain personalized relationships between our patients ("clients") and local healthcare providers, offering strong support networks.

All donated medicines are sent directly to patients and/or their healthcare provider. Aid for AIDS has established, on-going relationships with both doctor and patient in order to insure proper use and continuity of care.
"

It is actually a bit problematic to distribute recycled prescriptions to US patients under the various state and federal laws that govern prescribed drugs.

Sorry I only posted the link before and ran -- seemed a little abrupt I know but I lost the text around the link twice and gave up (sometimes my machine doesn't like the AIDSMEDS posting box)

When I was first diagnosed withy HIV my doctor gave me the prescription for meds and I got two months worth.
After I decided not to take the meds and they sat on my desk for several months....
zidovudine (AZT), lamivudine (3TC) and efavirenz (These are what they offer in Costa Rica)

One day I dropped my doctor an e-mail asking if he had anyone who would benefit from having a few extra meds and he had no problem with taking them off my hands.
Sometimes they do things ok in this country.

Cheers,
Hoover
