One of my friend is survivor of HIV and doctors prescribed Teevir viraday but this medicine not available all time at pharmacy so shopkeeper advice to take Teevir medicine and I am in fear, should I take this or not? Teevir is also available online ( at low price compare to pharmacy shop so kindly suggest to me, what would be better for me.

  1. Alafia (Peace) I have been taking medication for HIV since 1998. Throughout the year I have never taken a generic medication. I don't believe I have had any discussions with my providers about the subject. I have taken generic medications for my mental health diagnosis. They worked just a good as the original.

    1. Hi

      I have not taken a generic prescription for HIV, but have for other treatments. Have you spoken with your doctor about a prescription that's more readily available, or have you thought about going through a mail-order company? I have my prescription mailed to me every month, before I ever run out. I also use a prescription assistance program to help cover the out-of-pocket cost with the mail-order service. Hope this helps!
