Q and A


Are generics just as good as non-generics?

The ARVs that I get are given to me for free. They come from India. Are they OK?


Thanks for getting in touch.

Generic ARVs are just as good as non-generic ARVs. They do exactly the same thing, just that they cost a lot less.

Most people in the world use generic HIV drugs. Also most people in the UK use generic medicines for most other treatments.

Approximately 65-85% of all UK prescriptions are for generic medicines.

    Same in Armenia. My patients also use genetic types of ARV and they are going strong.
