  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I was prescribed tenofovir since 2006 in many of the combination medications for hIV treatment. doctors did not inform me of the risks. In May of 2014 I was diagnosed with CKD 3. Tis wen un checks all theses years. I was taken off Atripla "to see if my leg pain would go away" and restarted 3 months later on Complera and within days I started suffering from full body pain. The doctors insisted i stay on the medication. Then i was prescribed Stribild in 2013 and my GFR declined to 36. No doctor has yet to warm me of any side effects even when i ask they say there are no side effects. How can someone go to a doctor 6 times a year and have blood drawn 6 times or more a year and they not know you have a kidney problem.? No attorney will take my case.
