atripla/truvada in Chile or Argentina
« on: December 01, 2010, 01:45:05 PM »
Truvada and Atripla have yet to be approved for sale in Brazil.  (I think the government is debating on whether to break the patent like it did with Sustiva.)  Does anyone know if either of these medications are available in Argentina or Chile and if so where might be the best location to purchase with a prescription should the need arise?

There are generic versions of all these meds (Atripla, Truvada, and several other HIV meds) made by Cipla. Generic Atripla is called Viraday. Not sure where in those countries you can buy them but there are people here who have bought them online. If you do a search for "generic Atripla" or "Viraday" several threads come up with more specific info.

According to wikipedia generic Atripla is available in Brazil:

There is currently no generic version of Atripla available in the United States, but countries like Brazil and India are involved with compulsory licensing. The main advantage for these countries in producing a generic Atripla (Viraday) is they can sell it domestically at a radically lower cost than the price of the United States version. India is currently a signatory to TRIPS and consequently there will be a drop in the amount of generic HIV medicines available.
