What is Stribild?
Stribild®, also known as the “Quad” pill, is an anti-HIV medication that combines 4 different drugs into one pill. It combines elvitegravir, cobicistat, emtricitabine, and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). It is manufactured by Gilead Sciences and gained FDA-approval in 2012.
Lawsuits claim that TDF, one of the ingredients in Stribild, accumulates in the bones and kidneys and causes severe side effects. Patients have developed bone demineralization, which has led to bone fractures, as well as severe kidney damage and dental problems.

HIV Drug Lawsuits
In May 2018, two men from California who developed severe side effects of Gilead’s high-dose version of tenofovir (TDF) filed a lawsuit accusing the drug-maker of intentionally delaying development of a safer version of tenofovir to maximize profits on drugs like Stribild, Truvada, and more.
What is the Problem?
Gilead now recommends that doctors switch their patients to the new version of tenofovir to reduce the risk of kidney, tooth, and bone side effects.
“Instead of continuing to develop the safer alternative, the lawsuit claims, the Foster City company decided to hide tenofovir’s risks while earning billions of dollars as it became one of the world’s most prescribed medicines for HIV.”
Gilead is accuse of keeping a safer version of the medication in its laboratories while patients with HIV suffered for up to a decade of “additional accumulated kidney and bone toxicity.”
