Truvada is a medicine that aims to reduce the risk of HIV-1 infection caused by sexual intercourse. This medication is taken daily and it can only be given based on a doctor’s prescription. Truvada is also used in the treatment of patients who are HIV-positive. As preventive medicine, this drug is known as Truvada PrEP. Despite its efficacy in AIDS treatment and prevention, this medicine poses a series of risks some of which may be life-threatening.
Truvada can have a negative impact on multiple organs and systems, potentially endangering the patient’s life. If you use Truvada, any side-effects of the drug should be reported immediately to your doctor as their consequences can even be fatal. The injuries that can stem from taking Truvada commonly affect the liver, kidney, and bones. Some of the conditions associated with the use of this medication include:
The manufacturer of Truvada is Gilead Sciences Inc, an American company founded in 1987 that focuses on research and drug commercialization of antiviral drugs. Their headquarters are in Foster City, California.
If you feel any negative side-effects after using Truvada, you might have sustained personal injuries that can enable you to access financial compensation. Atraxia Law can analyze your case in a matter of a few minutes. Our team is able to quickly figure out if you are entitled to file a claim.

The use of Truvada as an AIDS treatment and prevention medication may lead to severe side effects, which, if left untreated, can even pose life-threatening risks. Gilead Sciences Inc, as the manufacturer of this drug, can be held liable for the negative side effects reported by people who use Truvada. The manufacturer is accountable for the personal injuries it caused its users out of negligence or by failing to fully disclose the risk associated with Truvada.
To date, hundreds of lawsuits have been brought against Truvada’s manufacturer, Gilead and they are currently pending in courts in California, Louisiana, and Delaware. Furthermore, in California, there is also a class action against Gilead. If the company will be considered liable for the personal injuries the plaintiffs suffered, they will have to pay significant amounts of money. The settlements for these lawsuits are still pending and, given that the cases are fairly new, some time might pass before judgment will be announced.
