Injured plaintiffs have started filing lawsuits against Gilead Sciences, Inc., the makers of Truvada, all across the country because of the undisclosed side effects the drug can cause. So, if you are taking Truvada to manage HIV and have sustained physical injuries such as kidney damage, kidney failure, or loss of bone mass leading to a diagnosis of osteoporosis, then you may have a right to file a legal claim against the makers of Truvada.
Truvada is the brand name for the HIV drug Emtricitabine/tenofovir. The combination of chemicals included in Truvada helps stop HIV cells from multiplying. Ultimately, Truvada prevents HIV from maturing into AIDS. Another benefit of Truvada lies in its ability to work with other drugs to prevent the spread of HIV. In that sense, the drug is remarkable and can help an HIV patient live a long, healthy, and productive life.
Modern medicine comes with unexpected costs and hidden dangers. Truvada patients have developed severe, life-altering side effects that diminish the quality of the patient’s life or could shorten it. Many people who rely on Truvada to help them live with HIV have fallen ill from kidney failure or suffered kidney damage after taking the drug. Other patients taking Truvada to develop osteoporosis and experience weakened bones that turn brittle and break easily.
HIV patients must take Truvada for a lifetime. The prolonged use of Truvada leads to weakened bones in many people, often leading to a loss of bone density and a diagnosis of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis sufferers have an increased risk of experiencing broken bones. Bones that break while the patient is in motion could cause falling and lead to aggravated injuries such as traumatic head injuries, fractured bones in the arms, hips, and legs that need surgery to repair.
In addition to osteoporosis, Truvada is known to cause kidney damage through its prolonged use. Kidney damage leads to renal failure. Consequently, the patient taking Truvada may have his or her HIV under control but might need a kidney transplant to survive.
