Truvada Lawsuit Attorneys

Representing Individuals Affected by the Use of Truvada

Truvada is a drug prescribed to treat and prevent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). It is produced by Gilead Sciences, Inc. and is one of the most popular and frequently prescribed drugs in its class. However, recent studies indicate that Truvada has serious side effects that cause painful medical conditions and, in the worst cases, death. Gilead knew about these side effects, and even refrained from selling other, safer drugs to maximize profits.

If you are suffering from this drug, help is available. Our law firm knows how painful and life-altering severe side effects can be, and we are ready to hold the company that caused your troubles accountable for its negligence. We’ve won significant settlements and verdicts for clients against some of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, so we have the experience needed to stand up for your recovery. We know that drug companies are powerful, and are more than prepared to be their match at the negotiation.

What Is Truvada?

Truvada is a tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), a type of drug which significantly inhibits an enzyme that retroviruses need while inhibiting enzymes the body needs in a limited capacity. When the drug works, it can reduce an individual’s risk of contracting illness from a partner who has AIDS or is HIV positive. It was created in 1984 and was approved for oral consumption in the United States in 2001. Before Gilead Sciences produced the drug in the form of a pill, it was only available intravenously. After the 2001 approval of the Truvada pill, known as Viread, the drug became one of the most popular HIV and AIDS medications.

What Are the Side Effects of Truvada?

Researchers have recently confirmed that Truvada has serious life-altering side effects. Recent mass tort lawsuits are accusing the company of failing to warn patients about Truvada’s risks, which the company knew about. Even worse, lawsuits accuse the company of withholding a safe alternative drug for ten years to profit from Truvada for longer.

  • Side effects of Truvada include the following:
  • Decreased bone density
  • Broken bones
  • Kidney damage
  • Kidney failure

Bone Damage from Truvada

When a person’s bone density decreases, they are at an increased risk of serious bone fractures, osteopenia, and osteoporosis. Symptoms of decreased bone density increase with exposure to Truvada, a distressing fact for a drug meant to be long-term.

Kidney Damage & Failure from Truvada

Truvada’s tendency to be taken for long periods of time also harms the kidneys.

As the kidneys attempt to filter toxins introduced by Truvada, they can become damaged or fail completely. When kidneys cannot properly filter blood, lactic acid accumulates in the body and causes weakness, nausea, vomiting, and breathing problems.

Our Pennsylvania Truvada Attorneys Are Investigating Gilead Science’s Negligence

All drugs have side effects, and some have severe ones as seen with Truvada.

The problem is Gilead knew about Truvada’s serious side effects, yet it failed to adequately warn consumers about its risks. To make the situation worse, the company developed medications which are likely safer than Truvada but withheld them from the market for the sake of profit. The ‘bottom line’ should never come at the expense of public safety. The only way to ensure Gilead makes up for its decisions while providing for the long-term treatment of Truvada patients is to file claims against the company.
