What is TRUVADA®?
TRUVADA®, created by the manufacturer Gilead, is a prescribed medication that was a combination of two different HIV medications, emtricitabine and tenofovir. It was used to treat the disease and to help reduce the risk of contracting HIV-1.
TRUVADA® Side Effects
Though early indications claimed TRUVADA® was a safer and less toxic alternative, Gilead halted their clinical research until their patent was near expiration. It was during this time that patients taking TRUVADA® started experiencing debilitating side effects such as:
- renal impairment
- kidney failure
- bone density loss
- multiple bone fractures
Although Gilead received two warning letters from the FDA for downplaying the medications side effects, the company still delayed research as a way to not only prolong their patent, but to also solidify their place in the market. Because of their careless actions, countless of HIV patients are now suffering permanent damage.
