travelling and Meds
« on: February 22, 2010, 12:06:50 PM »
hello all,  I have not been on here for a while now due to the nature of my job.  But anyway, I intend to travel out of the country and have been putting my trip on hold for a while due to the fact that i am kinda scared that I may end up not having enough medication on me.  I would love to travel out of the country to visit my family I have not seen in 10 years.  Is there any place I can get free extra pills for back up as I travel?  I am on Atripla and its been working really great fro me so far.  I asked my case worker once when i was in his office and he looked but there were no extra's out there in his office.

Please if you have switched combos and have some Atripla laying around, PM me and we can go from there.

thanks in advance

How do you get your meds? Through private insurance? ADAP? Most providers are amenable to approving an early Rx renewal if a person will be traveling. You would need to contact them and speak to a supervisor or someone who's authorized to approve an early Rx renewal.
