Step Three: Order Medication Online (via All Day Chemist)

All Day Chemist (ADC), which supplies Tenvir-EM by Cipla. ADC is a popular online pharmacy that has been used by thousands of people around the world to access generic PrEP.

Cipla is the world’s largest manufacturer of antiretroviral (anti-HIV) medicine and its emtricitabine/ tenofovir 200/300mg (Tenvir-EM) is also US-FDA approved (item #168 on list).

Data from 56 Dean Street in London show that blood samples taken from 234 patients who purchased generic PrEP online (mostly Tenvir-EM) all had adequate blood levels of drug (i.e. there was no evidence of any unsafe or counterfeit drug).

The downsides of this method (compared to Dynamix and Ricovir-EM) include:

  1. It is more expensive. The cost (per 3 month supply) will be approximately $280 CAD, compared to ~$180 with the old method. The breakdown of costs is as follows
Charge Cost in USD Cost in CAD as of 13/Dec/2016
90 tablets of Tenvir-EM $166.50 $218.39
Shipping fee $15.00 $19.68
Wire transfer fee (from your bank) ~$40
Total ~$278 CAD
  1. ADC does not accept credit card payments from new customers. If you happen to have used ADC before they stopped generally accepting credit cards, you may be able to use credit card payment if you email them. Otherwise, you have to pay using wire transfer for which, as above, your bank will charge $30-40.
    **Update 07-Jan-2017: a user has reported that some banks allow for free, online wire transfer. The user was a CIBC customer and was able to complete the transfer as per here. Check your institution’s online banking features to see if you can save this fee.
