ADAP is going to be your best bet.  They can keep you alive but you are GOING TO PAY!!!!.  I think my totals right now between 8 - 10 drugs is about $40000.00 per month.  If it weren't for ADAP and the pharmacutical programs, me and my big-ass dogs would be living under a bridge somewhere and we'd ALL be eating puppy chow.  :P

.....She then told me it was $1,600 for 30 pills.  Really.

I don't think so.  Mine costs like $2230 for 30 pills a month.  I see this figure on the receipt attached to the meds they deliver me.  Actually my cost is only $30.

Ugh..more than 1000 bucks for Combivir back in 2010 (one of the meds I take, I don't know the cost of kaletra yet)...I would be ruined if I were to buy these meds.I'm afraid that I'll be stuck here in my country the rest of my life because I don't see myself paying for them in another country (In my country I get them for free, and I'm really thankful of that, in fact, It's the only damn thing that my government did right).
Dx: 05/14/2008
Latest HIV Meds combo I've been taking:

Kaletra + Combivir (since 05/16/2008 - 05/09/2019)
Acriptega (05/10/2019 - today)
