In brief: Thousands of dollars

The retail cost for a year's worth of antiretrovirals can exceed $20, 000.
A year's worth of atripla, the most commonly prescribed antiretroviral regimen, costs $19k - $20k. The combination of reyataz/truvada/norvir, the second most commonly prescribed regimen, approaches $30k for the year. Costs are substantially less ($30-$100/month) if the medication is covered by your health insurance.
