NEED HELP: WHERE TO BUY HIV MEDICATION
« on: June 24, 2013, 01:51:09 AM »
Hi all,

I am hoping that some of the forum members who have previously responded to questions about Thailand might be able to help with some info. What do your meds cost in Thailand? I realize different meds will be priced differently, just looking to get some idea. This is for a newly pos friend who cannot get treatment where he is currently living and will fly into Thailand to Bumrungrad hospital for his tests and meds (if necessary).

much appreciated

cheapest and easiest is at Anonymous Clinic Rajdamri (Rachadamri) Road. You have to bring a prescription for your doctor (at Bumrungrad, BNH or somewhere else)
I have generic of Truvada and generic of Viramune and it's about 1500 THB for a month, Abacavir + 3TC (Kivexa) is 3150 THB. Hope this helps. Wish your friend well.  :)

Hi, Please advise me:

1. In Bangkok, is there any clinic diagnose the CD4 and virus load FREE for EXPAT (non-Thai citizen)?

2. In Thailand, Where is the clinic to check CD4 and virus load at the CHEAPEST FEE?

Thank you

Dear friends,

I would like to ask about the Drug [efavirenz 600 mg + FTC 200 mg + tenofovir 300 mg] for your help.

Now I am buying DRUG [efavirenz 600 mg + FTC 200 mg + tenofovir 300 mg], a type of Atrila, produced by MYLAN (India) with the price is 50USD/30 pills (not buy in Thailand). My questions are:

1. Where to buy this drug in Thailand (Bangkok)? Or who to contact to buy?

2. How much is the price for 30 pills (in 1 bottle)? Could the price is cheaper than 50USD /30 pills?

3. Comparison about the durg effect, what are differences between Atripla produced by Bristol Myers Squibb and produced by MYLAN (INDIA)?

Thank you for your help.

There is a free clinic at Silom Community Clinic @ Bangkok Christian Hospital, check with them for the services they offer.
Cheapest tests and drugs at Anonymous Clinic. Bring your prescription for drugs.
To my knowledge Anonymous Clinic doesn't carry generic Atripla but this might have changed, the branded Atripla is 2460 THB (or around there).
I take other generic stuff from Mylan labs with no trouble.
Good luck!

Comparison about the durg effect, what are differences between Atripla produced by Bristol Myers Squibb and produced by MYLAN (INDIA)?

Thank you for your help.

It is the same thing (same active compounds)...  I take Mylans one for some months, there are not avalaible for being bought, the plublic health system give us here, only Viraday (almost USD 200 for 30 units, in Ecuador this is quite expensive in regard to what people earn).  I have the same side effects tan with other brands (almost nothing, except the foggy effect that comes with Efavirenz) and my labs are really great...  Ive never been under atripla.

I did not imagine that this drug could be so cheap...   Im happy it exists...

The Anonymous Clinic run by the Red Cross is a good place to start looking .
