Went to Dhaka three weeks ago to buy medicine. Contacted Incepta pharmaceutical went there showed them a letter that says I'm hcv positive but no mention of any drugs, and that was enough, amazing.
Bought 12 weeks course worth of pils
72400 taka. Started treatment same day.
Next day I felt a bit sick but nothing major. After first week it really felt good. I was in Bangladesh for three weeks
But really could do it all in one day.
I was prepared to go to doctor to get prescription because I only had that London homerton hospital letter with no mention of drugs, only saying that I've got hcv for 14 yeRs.
Went there to see that incepta and talk to them. Was really impressed with facilities. Showed my passport and that letter and they said its enough to get Twinvir. They took me to exchange shop to exchange GBP in their van with Incepta logo on it. Went back bought it got invoice as well. Rest of the time I traveled to cox's bazaar and spent time there. Second week it felt really different. My mind was never this clear ever. Now I'm in UK. Got back yesterday.
Country a bit shocking to be honest, I ve been in Thailand for leisure and it's heaven and hell in comparison.
If you have any questions ask me please
Sorry, I'm foreign and not that fluent yet but sure can explain you all you need
I am new joiner from New Delhi,India.
I work in Indian Pharma Company which is marketing Sofosbuvir and Hepatitis B drugs.
Generic Harvony is also coming to us in next week after Diwali,as per circulated news.
I am willing to share the recent news regarding Generic Sovaldi and Generic Harvoni from New Delhi.
Hello beth , you may please go back to page 3 of this thread , i have written in detail how i got my meds and other info .
best wishes and warm regards .
do you need it i will try to help
Harvoni or any of the Generic is not approved or available in India as of now
HEllo everybody, i have been notified, that generic will become available during two nearest months. Cipla wants to name generic harvoni as HEPCVIR. Also i have found interesting tweets from Laurent Garcia, https://twitter.com/laurent_garcia/ And subscribed to him. Currently that's all what i know.
The company answered positively was Strides Arcolab Limited. Others did not replied.
Thank you very much for this info.
Do you know how can I contact Strides Arcolab Limited? Do you have some email that they are replying about this. I am also looking to know when this HEPCVIR generic Drug will be available from Cipla and if there will also a generic for Harvoni.
Natco has lauched its generic version of Sovaldi on March 12th,c2015 to US$318 American Dollars the Bottle for one Month, so an average of US$900 for 3 bottles.
This generic is called: HEPCINAT
Here below the link:
NATCO RECEIVES GENERIC SOFOSBUVIR (SOVALDI®) APPROVAL FOR INDIA
and I also found these Links:
You can get this info from the Gilead website, both the licensed Indian drugs manufacturers and the 91 countries where the generics will be sold more cheaply:
I have been trying for some time to find an Indian hospital, or hepatologist and more importantly a TRUSTED source of drugs in India. You would think that the Indian medical tourism industry would be queuing up to offer treatment considering the demand but that seems not to be the case. Maybe it is just too early. When Harvoni is on the shelves in India I really hope to hear of a place which is welcoming international patients for hepC treatment. If anybody out there does find this place I would appreciate hearing about it, so PM me please. I am happy to share all my research so far with anybody who is interested. The Gilead link more or less says it all though,
According to the Gilead web page, the Indian generic isn't licensed for the USA (obviously). I wonder if this means that the Indian pharmas and MDs won't sell it to U.S. citizens?
My guess is you will have to go to India to get the drug but that may be a heck of a lot cheaper than paying out-of-pocket here in the states. The thing is if you don't have insurance and are low income, you should be able to get Gilead to give it to you as long as you can obtain a script from a doctor. However, it may be easier to get a script in India than to get one in some of the states here where they don't want anyone on Medicaid to treat unless they have cirrhosis.
Thanks drrubesh. I hope the generic harvoni can also be available soon on India.Please let me know anything that you can know about this.
I hope this drug can be exported to Peru in Soutth America and above all to get a trusted source of drugs in India to purchase it.
Thanks for this PDF. It seems Gilead has not included my country "Peru" in its list.
In any case I think the travel to India is one good idea. The important thing as you mention is to get a good hepatologic doctor there or good Hospital in India and the TRUSTED source of this drug on India.
Please PM when you know this generic Harvoni could be available there in India and what could be the best plan to get it.
Dear all,I live in Bosnia and Hercegovina and I am sooo interested in therapy of hepatitis C. We cannot afford so high price of drugs but informations about cheaper prices in India are wery welcommed.
Thank you a lot to all good people who wants to help.
God bless you all :)
Below is an exerpt from FiercePharmaAsia, a financila news letter I receive.
It names SOME, but NOT ALL of the 90 countries NATCO hs planning on distributing to. Plus Hetero Labs, has thier version ready for distribution, and 4 or 5 others are almost there. I believe that I read somewhere that ther were 10 companies getting generics ready for disbribution plus Gilead will be distributing ther at a reduced price agreement.
If I find a list of the companies, I will share the list. - OR someone else finds it - I am sure they will share. Hope this offers some help.
On Friday, Hetero Pharma was also cleared to market a generic Sovaldi and said it would launch by the end of the month at home and in other countries. Natco and Hetero announced a price in India of $318 for a bottle of 28 tablets, or just over $11 a pill. Both are for 400 mg doses. Natco also said it expects to launch its version, which it labeled Hepcinat, "very soon" through partnerships with other India drug makers, but set no date.
Both companies are among the now 10 in India to sign non-exclusive licensing deals with Gilead after it lost its local patent for the drug. In addition, Natco said it would take advantage of the fact Gilead had no patent in those countries to sell its version in Bangladesh and Nepal.
Gilead said, "Sofosbuvir recently received regulatory approval in India (January 2015), and regulatory submissions have been completed in additional countries, including Pakistan, Thailand, Brazil, Uganda, South Africa and Nigeria." The 8 generics makers, free to set their own prices, would still be competing against Gilead and the brand. The company recently negotiated lower prices with Germany's regulators.
Good Luck and hope your Country is on the list, or one close enough to get treatment.
I also have found this article here:
