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.

Thanks for providing such great info. I recently had my six month check up and my doc had been suggesting I might want to replace my Atripla with a new regimen. Using this website as a resource I spent a lot of time researching. I printed out your chart, looked at the pros/cons of each med, and even brought the chart with me to my doc. She was impressed at my knowledge on all that is available. Long story short, I decided to switch  to Biktarvy
