What You Need to Know About Generic Norvir

Is Ritonavir the Same as Generic Norvir?

No -- ritonavir is the active ingredient in Norvir, but is not a generic version of it. What can be confusing is that, oftentimes, the active ingredient of any drug is referred to as the "generic name." The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off-patent and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.

Affording Norvir

Several years ago, the price of Norvir was significantly increased, making it less affordable for many people. However, Abbott Laboratories is dedicated to helping people who cannot afford Norvir to access the medication. If you are having trouble paying for Norvir, ask your healthcare provider if you qualify for patient assistance programs that may provide Norvir at no cost to you.
