PrEP medication, which helps to reduce the risk of HIV infection has up until recently been quite expensive and in some cases, the cost of this form of medication has been unattainable for those who needed it most. This led many in the past to buy unauthorised and unreliable alternatives from other sources.
Due to the lack of access to PrEP medication, the number of HIV infection cases in Ireland has risen in recent years. Teva Pharmaceuticals Ireland wish to combat this by ensuring that their medication, Emtricitabine/Tenofovir disoproxil, is privately available through the Community Pharmacy at a much more affordable price point.
I’m delighted to announce that I will now be offering this medicine on prescription at a lesser price as part of Community Pharmacy. For more information, please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.
