Prescription needed for Tenofovir
Hi All,

Is there a way I can have a prescription from a doctor when buying tenofovir online? Here in the Philippines, the drug is not yet available and the doctors are not prescribing it since it is not available. I'm planning to take tenofovir but having trouble in getting prescription, so i cannot order online.

Please advise.

Hi there!

I am not sure about the laws in Phillipines, though local non-availability of a drug should not be a reason for non-prescription. It would not be possible to obtain a prescription online. I would suggest talking this over with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Is there a possibility that a doctor online would prescribe me tenofovir by just giving him/her the result of my hbvdna, alt, hbsag, hbeag, etc.?

Hopefully we can find doctors here that is mature enough in this situation. Entecavir (30 tablets) is equivalent of 2 months of generic tenofovir. And from studies, tenofovir is most potent drug for hbv. I have an upcoming appointment with a new doctor, she's a hepatologist, i'll ask her about this. I hope she knows about tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. I'll let you know what will happen.

With your high VL you need to.take something. Take Entecavir and get the numbers down. It is the same group of drugs as Tenofovir. So you are not missing anything. Interferon is still the  best for us. So dont worry.

Thanks, you are right, need to take something to lower VL, but since tenofovir is already available now in Philippines, i might as well look for it and doctors that will prescribe it.

My funding for Viread runs out in Aug, 2015.
Gilead is under pressure to have the FDA stop the Generic form.  Tenofovir is made by Cipla in Mumbai, India.  This firm has been making drugs since 1935.  All drugs are distributee in 130 countries.  China has re written their  F D A type regulation banning Viread because the earlier agreement stated that Viread was 300% higher in cost.  China decided at that price, few people could afford the $12,000/yr and was not helping it's people.  Brazil and another country have banned the Viread name and it's exclusion for the Generic Tenofovir.  I am buying the generic through a Canadian pharmacy.  They have store fronts across the country.

I need an RX from my Doc. and give the Rx and a request form.  They ship before the ck clears.  I will pay $00.90 each.  The average price for most of the world is $1.33 per.  Gilead only distributes their Viread.  Most drugs are made by Cipla LLC in Mumbai, Indiana.  My request will be faxed to a reputable Canadian pharmacy and shipped from India right to my door.

Doing this way will be my permanent way.   Congress and F D A  has allowed Gilead, now that they are the exclusive source in the U.S. to mark up each tab to $30 per.  That is 300% higher than all countries in the world.

I have go this route due to cost, like China and Brazil.  Our gov't is siding with the $$, not with it's people.  There are thousands of items doing this.  Apple makes nothing here in U.S.

You feel abused as an indivual.  These are life saving meds.  Any gov't health plan will benefit the 1%.  Congress and George W. Bush said if you can't afford these inflated costs, you should die.  This is a prominent issue that we have NO control over except to see health care costs in other countries and go from there.  Get rid of lobbyists.  Fire all Congress and have the states governors form a congress.  They are closer to the people.  Rx drug costs is one of thousand ripp off schemes passed late at night.

Sorry this long, but all of these 1% are taking money from us and giving us nothing in return
