What Is TDF?

Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) is an HIV drug sold by Gilead Sciences, Inc. under the brand names Viread®, Truvada®, Truvada for PrEP®, Atripla®, Complera®, and Stribild®. TDF is commonly prescribed to treat or prevent HIV infection. However, it has been reported to FDA and Gilead itself warns that TDF can cause loss of kidney function and decreased bone mineral density.

Current lawsuits allege that Gilead intentionally withheld a safer HIV drug in order to maximize profits from TDF sales even though Gilead knew at the time that TDF can cause kidney disease and bone loss.

What Are The Risks Associated With TDF? 

People taking a TDF drug should be advised of its risks. In recent clinical studies, researchers have found higher rates of declining kidney function and reduced bone mineral density in some patients after 1-2 years of TDF use, and in as few as 3 months of TDF use.

Signs and symptoms of kidney disease include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Sleep problems
  • Urinating more or less
  • Decreased mental sharpness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Swelling of feet and ankles
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • High blood pressure (hypertension) that's difficult to control
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain

Signs and symptoms of bone loss include:

  • Back pain
  • Loss of height over time
  • A stooped posture
  • A bone that breaks much more easily than expected
  • Tooth loss
