What is Stribild?
Manufactured by Gilead Sciences, Stribild (efavirenz/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine) is designed to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the infection that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). It doesn’t cure HIV or AIDS, but instead may slow progress of the disease and prolong life. Stribild was approved by the FDA in October 2012.
What’s the Problem?
It has been alleged that the tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) in Stribild may contribute to kidney problems and bone demineralization due to compromised bone density. Gilead has been accused of placing consumers at an unnecessary risk of injury, seeing as the company could have released an equally effective product that was not so dangerous.
Stribild Side Effects
- Bone demineralization
- Loss of bone density
- Bone fractures
- Kidney damage
- Kidney toxicity
- Chronic kidney disease (CKD)

Why Our Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of an Stribild class action suit and is currently filing individual claims for individuals and/or their family members who suffered kidney or bone problems after using the drug.
We decided on this course of action because class action suits can be a detriment to many class members in this type of litigation, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Stribild lawsuits on their behalf.
Do I Have a Stribild Lawsuit?
The Class Action Litigation Group at our law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus on the representation of plaintiffs in Stribild lawsuits. We are handling individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new bone density and kidney injury cases in all 50 states.
Free Case Evaluation: Again, if you or a loved one has been harmed by the side effects of Stribild, you should contact our law firm immediately. You may be entitled to a settlement by filing a suit and we can help.
