Not too long ago due to my EOT result I was having to consider to start treatment again (thankfully this turned out to not be the case). Monk Med was awesome! I had a free consult with one of their doctors and their service is second to none - great bunch of people.

anyway, i would like to have more info on monkmeds. who of you used it? i have noticed it s cheaper than the rest ie this here site. why?
Altruism is the answer to your question Enrico.
Most of us have had this virus for decades and are quite intimate with the workings of several liver clinics and feel like walking pin cushions from the amount of blood tests and we have had for no result. We are also disgusted that meds are available to cure this virus but accessing them for many is almost impossible. Fortunately access to meds now for Australians is easy and cheap which is probably why the British,American and New Zealand members on this site are more active in helping others source these life saving meds.
Get the pills any way you want Enrico but just make sure you do, you then may feel angry and then compelled to assist others to do the same. Or not.

Hey Enrico, I posted the above a couple of days back and I stand by it. We've all been where you are and had to take a leap of faith, so to speak. I spoke with Tim same as you. If I emailed him over concerns I was having he responded literally, within the hour, most of the time within minutes. He even texted me from JFK's Tarmac and then phoned me when he deplaned. Jyoti, MonkMeds shipping guy in India was the same? MonkMed was incredibly supportive and still is even though, as I also let you know a few days back, I have already received my meds from them. They truly seemed to be as concerned about my shipment getting to me as I was.
This is what I got from them just this Wednesday. The main thing, as Paul so eloquently said, is get your meds from whatever source you choose and get done with this hep c beast.

I am a real person, who the meds really got to in time, and I have been telling people that is is real, it works, publicly for a few months. www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/368046/hep-c-...t-goes-offshore-cure
It doesn't involve commission- it is prompted by civic duty. That's what is behind the support and advice of everyone here. That's what is behind these suspiciously positive posts- we are not used to it. It is quite moving. Many of us had no help from our own doctor but one who had never met us cared enough in the abstract to find a safe way. The Indian system was honestly applied to allow us access, People like Greg Jefferys shouted about it wherever possible. All of us were reached by a process that has been transformative, and fair. We are not playing it up. Sustainable businesses as the backbone of all of that, providing free resources to all, everywhere, like MonkMed and GP2U, is a good thing.

I understand your concerns. Everyone should base their decisions on reliable information. You can’t get any more reliable than the Journal of Hepatology. Please note LB03 just over half way down the first column.
On a separate issue about cost, this site offers you a variety of reliable options to access your required DAAs at a price similar to what you would pay if you flew to the country that manufactured the generic DAAs and purchased them yourself. However, when you factor in the price of your plane ticket and accommodation, you would effectively double your cost.
I’m merely a very happy patient who can now see a future for himself.
