Thanks Jim, but still a problem with the generics of all these new drugs been made available in all asian countries including Thailand,i hope they become available at affordable cost to all soon,  indian companies such as mylan and hetero  cipla etc are leading the way in generic arvs,

Jim Allen:
Generics take time, but its good to know what treatment combination are possible and out there. ;) Unfortunately i doubt ill ever have an (up-to-date) guide for every individual nation.

I've actually looked into the generics through my insurance and the co-pays I'd have to pay are higher then the brand name Rx.  That part is shocking but when they came to talk to us at work they said sometimes that will be true as they feel the brand name Rx is better.
