HIV Drugs Are Causing Severe Injuries – Bone Problems & Kidney Failure
Truvada and other HIV drugs where tenofovir disproxil is the active ingredient have been shown to have a higher risk for things like bone density loss, fractured bones, lactic acidosis, and kidney failure.
There is a similar drug which is safe and does not pose the same risk for kidney problems and bone density loss which was being kept secret in order to make money for the patent holder Gilead Sciences, Inc.
Truvada became FDA approved to treat HIV patients in 2004 and for PrEP use in 2012.
Gilead Sciences, Inc. generated over $11 billion per year at the peak of sales of Truvada.
It is believed Gilead Sciences, Inc. delayed TAF research so they could protect their monopoly on drugs that contain tenofovir.
All while millions of people with HIV that depend on these drugs to remain healthy were put at risk for other injuries. Such as kidney failure, renal impairment, bone density loss, and bone fractures.
The drug manufacturer received multiple FDA warning letters about Truvada after their sales reps were caught making false claims regarding its safety.
People have suffered from side effects such as:
- Broken and Brittle Bones
- Kidney Failure
Names of the HIV drugs causing these injuries:
People that have taken these drugs and suffered injuries are filing lawsuits against the maker of the drug.
A Truvada lawsuit provides people compensation for pain & suffering, damages, medical expenses, and other losses.
As well as provide a means to help people hold the manufacturer accountable for profiting off of their injuries.
What is Truvada used for?
TRUVADA is a prescription medicine used with other HIV medicines to treat HIV infection in people who weigh at least 77 pounds.
It contains two different HIV medicines combined in one pill: emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate.
The two drugs in combination prevent HIV from multiplying and can reduce the amount of HIV in the body.
Truvada is not a cure.
What are common Truvada side effects?
The most common reactions, according to a Study on 934 patients in an active-controlled clinical trial include diarrhea, nausea, fatigue, headache, dizziness, depression, insomnia, abnormal dreams, and rash.
Lawsuits are claiming:
- TDF-containing drugs are unreasonably and unnecessarily toxic to patients’ kidneys and bones
- The drug manufacturer knew that TDF is highly toxic while an alternative that was much less toxic was available.
- The company purposefully kept the safer alternative a secret for over a decade in order to make more money, even as serious side effects were being reported by patients.
- They failed to adequately warn physicians and consumers about the safe use of TDF drugs.
Gilead Sciences, Inc. did not want to see the profits its TDF-based products generate decrease.
Instead, they did not disclose to anyone the fact that the drugs were unreasonably and unnecessarily dangerous.
By withholding this kind of information, the pharmaceutical corporation made billions.
Pharmaceutical corporations shouldn’t be allowed to exploit us – particularly people that are living with a life-threatening infection.

Dan Weltin was invaluable to me and helped me through a very difficult time. My ex-employer was taking advantage of me and not paying me for extra hours worked. Mr. Weltin helped me right this wrong and was able to acquire the funds owed to me, including interest and hardship costs. Mr. Weltin and his office were always very attentive to my needs and always available when I had questions needed to be answered.s.Mitchell Rios
