HIV medications Viread, Truvada, Atripla, Complera, and Striblid have been linked to kidney damage, bone loss and bone fractures.

What is this lawsuit about?

Truvada, Viread, Atripla, Complera, and Stribild are antiviral drugs with the active ingredient tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, or TDF. The manufacturer is accused of failing to warn patients about the possibility of damage to the bones and kidneys associated with TDF medications. According to court documents, they are also accused of slowing the development of safer drugs for more than a decade to protect the profits on their existing drugs.

Kidney and Bone Side Effects

TDF medications can cause minerals to leech out of bones, making bones weaker and more prone to breaking. A 2016 study also showed that the rate of chronic kidney disease among patients using TDF medications was much higher than patients who had stopped taking the drug within 6 months. Side effects include:

  Chronic Kidney Disease
  Severe Renal Deficiency
  Fatal Renal Insufficiency
  End Stage Renal Disease
  Loss of Bone Density
  Low Bone Mineral Density
  Bone Loss
  Bone Breaks or Fractures
  Bone Necrosis
  Tooth Loss attributed to bone density disorder
  Fanconi Syndrome
  Osteomalacia (softening of the bones)
  Osteoporosis with Pathological Fracture

If you suffered serious side effects after taking Truvada, Viread, Atripla, Complera, or Stribild, you may qualify for money damages. Call the Gold Shield Group at 800-533-2043 for a free/no obligation case review.
