reliable website to purchase meds?
« on: October 22, 2013, 05:50:25 AM »
this information request is for a friend who is HIV positive.

My friend lives in Southern China. He cannot access meds at this time due to rules in that country as meds start is based on low threshold of CD4 count. He remains just above the threshold and has for some time therefore cannot access meds.

He wants to start meds immediately and buy/access via a reliable website. Any advice/recommendations from folks who have used a particular website to buy their meds? Generics are Ok too.

thanks

Honestly he's better off just going to HK and buying a ton, or getting to know a local pharmacist who will sell him meds. The price of meds in China or India is going to be lower than most places in the world, and the pharmacist usually will be happy to make money by selling them. That's my experience in that part of the world.
