generic meds
« on: January 13, 2007, 02:15:56 PM »
Hi, I was tested poz last year, but I'm having trouble buying my meds in mexico, and the social security is not giving me the meds regularly, so I just want to know if there is a place in the US where i can buy generic meds because I don't make enough money to buy brand name, and here in mexico there is not a place to buy generic meds, I was thinking someplace where I can put an order by internet and pay with a credit card, and send the meds to mexico or to mcallen, tx.
Can someone help me please.
The meds that I'm taking are combivir and sustiva.

Yes we are cheaper than the USA, but now because of the amount of Drugs going South our Government is starting to put the breaks on the exidus of drugs south, so you better hurry it could end anytime.

I believe you can order generic meds from India on the internet.  I have seen a couple of posters on theses boards that do it. Maybe they can share the details.

I did buy a generic med from India

I ordered and received what appears to be the generic drug I paid for...From India. I saved more than 50%. I developed a rash after a few days. The problem is the rash might come from my incompatibility with the drug I wanted, or it might mean I got something other than what I ordered. Unless I buy the real thing from a No American pharmacy and DON'T get a rash, I have no way of knowing.

This drug is not hiv-related in any way. It sucks that we'd risk quality for price. I would be wary of buying a drug of unknown quality if my live depended on it----but maybe some people have to choose "lesser evil"? :o
