Hiv aids treatment cost

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids treatment cost


Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.

Now, Gilead has set a new benchmark for unbridled greed with its outrageous price for Sovaldi—a price that some pharmacy industry sources suggest represents a retail markup of 279,000% over the cost of actually producing the drug.
Avatar m tn Today, HIV should not progress to AIDS with treatment. You have neither so it does not concern you.

Avatar n tn Products like Oraquick are available for $35--and a PCR HIV test/Chlamydia/Gonorrhea test can be done for $135. This might not be cost effective to many folks compared to condoms-but if we don't have the numbers, that is hard to evaluate. Also has anyone evaluated if any risk reduction is associated with regularly monitoring temperature of a partner and avoiding sexual contact until a good test can be obtained after a fever has been noted?
Avatar m tn You have to have HIV before you can progress to AIDS and no an HIV test will not tell you if you have HSV or not.
Avatar f tn U should visit an hiv/aids consultation. Maybe they can help you to get the PEP. What kind of ********* is having unprotected sex while knowing he got HIV... Always use a condom!
Avatar f tn Can you Get HHV8 and not get HIV/AIDS?. Is it possible to skip HIV and get AIDS directly? Would HHV-8 be what caused all my symptoms (fever/neck ach/night sweats/nightmares/nausea/tiredness? If I was coinfected with HHV-8, HIV would it take longer than 8 weeks to show on elisa test? Please help need more answers. The Dermatolgist had a wait and see attitude with my questions.

Avatar n tn And the thing that freaks me out the most is that i have a lot of symptoms that could be related to hiv/aids. I have low wbc count. I also a high level of protein in my blood too. I feel like i am at a lost. Every doctor ive been to tells me not to worry, but how am i not suppose to when i have all these signs in my blood work pointing to hiv?
Avatar n tn It is also our policy that every person who requests a HIV PCR test also have a standard HIV Elisa test at the same time at no additional cost to you. The standard AIDS test is an Elisa test, which tests for the antibodies your body makes for the AIDS virus. This test is the standard test used by hospitals and blood banks in America and the world. Positive tests are confirmed with a second test called the Western blot, which also analyzes the body's antibody response.
Avatar f tn re not feeling well then go see the doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. But there is 100% no way you have AIDS because you were never exposed to HIV.
Avatar f tn m meeting w/my GI doctor at the end of May to discuss the new drugs for beginning treatment and was wondering if the doctor will discuss treatment costs with me or do I need to find this kind of information out myself? If I don't have prescription coverage or co-pays will all expenses be out of pocket or will it be applied to my deductible? I don't have the greatest insurance and don't know what the new meds will cost yet. Any and all information is appreciated!
Avatar m tn the speculation is these new meds will be at least double the cost of current treatment. and like everywhere It will remain to be seen what the insurance companies do .
1722607 tn?1335747858 I contacted my insurance company today to ask about the price of the meds for triple treatment. A 3 month supply of interferon, ribavirin, & Victrelis would cost $180.00 (so about $60 a month) I thought it was going to be a lot higher. But I forgot to ask about "rescue drugs". Not sure how that works and how much that would be. Any one have an idea?
1530342 tn?1405016490 A vaccine is FAR more likely than a cure. For MOST viral infections, there is no cure, and with HIV, a retrovrius, it is unlikely. We still don't have a cure for the common cold, and influenza. A cure would be wonderful, but just think of all the other diseases out there with no cure, only treatments. The thing to be thankful for is how far we've come in the treatment for HIV/AIDS. MANY people are living completely normal life spans...
Avatar f tn but i have heard that body fluid can enter the body through skin is it possible that can u have aids?
