Does anyone know of a specialty pharmacy that will sell 14 day supply of Harvoni?

Eddyjoe, the specialty pharmacies sell only what the manufacturers ship. What you receive from a specialty pharmacy is a factory-sealed bottle. Thus the question becomes, "Does Gilead sell a 14-day supply?" Unlikely, since the treatment guidelines are all in multiples of 4 weeks, but you could contact Gilead to find out.

What would be the reason for wanting a 14 day supply? The minimum treatment length is 8 weeks a 2 weeks supply could possibly cause resistance issues if that was all the person took. Also you would need a prescription for the Pharmacy not sure how you would get a prescription of the length from a doctor

My insurance would only approve 8 weeks. I didn't have enough left on Harvoni coupons for a full month. Thanks to my pharmacy I will now be able to get the full refill for a twelve week treatment. The pharmacy enrolled me in a foundation and I was accepted. My full bottle just arrived.

Oh, good! I'm glad you are going to be able to get the appropriate treatment length. Thanks for helping Lynn and me understand your original question. If we had realized that was the problem, we would have suggested a way to get help, but thankfully your pharmacy did that for you.

Best wishes,
