Other resources for low cost PrEP:
Many people are successfully ordering generic Truvada online from outside of the USA. Caution is advised when selecting a company to order online and you need to follow US law guidelines to do this.
This online resource has very good reviews and word of mouth.
If you choose to order PrEP online you must:
1. See a doctor, test negative for the virus and get the other required blood tests done.
2. Obtain a prescription for Truvada with the generic substitution box checked. It is the default in most instances including the Free PrEP Clinic.
3. Make sure you order the correct thing: emtricitabine 200 mg and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg.
3. Have a US Passport (No other ID is acceptable)
4. See a doctor every 3-4 months once you are taking PrEP for an HIV test and other required blood work.
We've been advised that US Law only permits 90 days worth of this medication coming into the country at a time so you'll need to plan carefully and adhere to the boundaries of US law. The cost is about $15. per month.
