FDA Approves First Generic Truvada

The progressive decision surprises HIV advocates across the country
From: NewNowNext
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a generic form of Teva Pharmaceutical’s Truvada, the drug used for HIV treatment and prevention (PrEP). It’s a move that has “taken HIV advocates by considerable surprise,” notes POZ.

The announcement signals major changes to come in the drug’s cost, both for insurance companies and individual consumers. Exact details regarding changes in price have yet to be determined. Currently, the monthly cost for Truvada can be upwards of $1,500 without insurance, and anywhere from $0 to $500 with insurance.
