2 months worth of Isentress/Truvada no longer needed

(1/3) > >>

Betelgeuse:
I just switched from a Truvada/Isentress regimen to the quad pill.

I had 2 months worth stockpiled (my insurance company requires me to fill prescriptions three months at a time).

I don't know whether this is legal or okay to do, but I don't want these to go to waste as I won't be using them anymore.  They will just go in the trash if they don't get used somehow.

These medication has been stored at room temperature, filled 2/2013, expires 2/2015.  120 x Isentress, 60 x Truvada)

If this is not kosher, go ahead and delete this message, moderators.  Otherwise, first serious message I receive can have this delivered to them.  Shipping to anyone in the US - my dime.

Thank you for your generous post! I sure hope no one deletes it - but it might be good if, over a few months, you monitored this post and the LIVING WITH forum to see if other members need these meds.I have done this, by the way, when I have had extra meds.


Another option is to contact your local ASO. There are ways to get those meds to people who need them via that route as well.

protip: It's not technically legal to do this, so if you DO ship your meds to someone, use a Sharpie and mark out your info. For your protection :)

Check out Aid for Aids International at http://aidforaids.org/

It's a great organization and it is currently having an HIV medicine drive.

Ann:
Bet, as long as you're not trying to sell your surplus meds to other forum members, then I see nothing. ;)

Thanks for posting this link!
Donating meds locally or to an international organization is a great way to turn trash into gold. :)
