HI I am new here.I have talked with Dr Freeman and he has put an order in for me with a pharmacy in Austrailia for sofosbivir.I am taking zepatier and ribavirin but it is not doing the job so he is adding the sovaldi.Obviously I have to pay for these meds before they send them.I am in New Jersey in the USA.How does this work?How do I pay this pharmacy?Would they contact me and get a credit card number?

Hi Glen,

Dr James doesn't appear to be online at the moment. I assume you had a consultation with the doctor and he prescribed Sofosbuvir and was going to electronically forward your script to the pharmacy? I wonder if he mentioned the pharmacy and if it was called Kingswood? If that is the case then I believe they will accept the major credit cards so you should contact them to discuss whether they have received your script and how you should arrange payment. You will be able to find Kingswoods contact details via this link:

I'm sure you will be contacted soon but either way you are in good hands with Doctor Freeman. I wouldn't worry too much about how and where, because if Dr. Freeman says he's gonna help you he certainly will. I suggest you pay attention to the private message link because you may be contacted that way, have a credit card handy but the Sof isn't gonna cost much at all, not like the US. I live in California and I can't believe how big pharma is screwing us heppers and others buy charging prices that are made for the filthy rich. good luck!!

Thank you for this info-There is no name for the pharmacy on the prescription.I would like to contact Kingswood pharmacy to see if they are the one.I have never tried calling out of my country (USA).The phone number is very different from ours and I don't think I can contact them by phone.Would you have an email address for Kingswood pharmacy.I need these meds as quick as possible so I can use them with my meds for the final month that I will be on them.

It's right across from where you logout. Or if you look above and you see the Gray Tabs on top, it's almost directly under the Glossary Tab. There, looks something like below, except Private Messages is further right. I just sent you a message.

Thanks fretboard. :)

That is assuming he has that panel open in his setup (little blue +\- tab to the right of the grey tabs) otherwise it can also be accessed by clicking on your user name to go to your profile and looking for the link under your avatar and details on the left hand side of the screen.

If it is Kingswood you do not dial the 0 when making your call. I used the viber app that you can download onto your phone to call them. I also had to buy minutes because the number for Kingswood is a landline. The app is a free call to anywhere as long as the party you are calling has it also which Kingswood doesn't have. I believe the least you can purchase is $3.99usd . I used less than $1 to make several calls to them. Good luck, let me know if you have any problems making the call, it took me a little research to figure it all out,but went through without any problems once I figured it out.

I tried to also tell you that another really nice thing about Kingswood is that an actual person answers the phone,not like most businesses here in the states where you have to push multiple numbers before getting a real person to talk to

Thanks CC2B,

I forgot that cell/mobile phones automatically add that zero which is required for interstate calls within Australia but bracket to exclude for international callers. Clever little beggars aren't they? :lol: I've remove it from my post.

Hi GP,

To dial an Australian number from the US, these are the steps:

Dial the "exit code" to get to international lines ... 011
Then dial the country code of the country you wish to call, Australia is 61
Then the area code within Australia ... 2
Then the 8 digit phone number ... 4721 2752

So the whole number is ... 011 61 2 4721 2752

PS You can tell them the tall American that showed up at opening time on a Sunday just over 7 months ago says Hi and Thank You.

Hi GP,
Although I have 8 weeks worth of sofosbuvir and ledipasvir, I have been advised there is no way I can legally donate it to anyone.
