Complera, a widely-prescribed combination HIV medicine, contains an ingredient called tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, which has recently been found to contribute to kidney problems and bone demineralization due to compromised bone density.

Can I File a Class Action Lawsuit?

Our lawyers have opted against the filing of a class action lawsuit in the litigation involving Complera and the other HIV drugs in its class. It has been our experience that class actions typically render many plaintiffs powerless over their own cases, many of whom end up making bad decisions on behalf of the entire class, rather than on what’s best for them and their loved ones. For this reason, the law offices of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, are only filing individual claims for our clients. Contact us today to learn more about your legal rights.

Kidney Disease Symptoms

According to the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care 2021 research, nearly 40 million adults in the U.S. are living with kidney disease, and most are unaware of their condition. There are numerous symptoms of kidney disease, but people usually attribute them to other issues [1].

Additionally, many people with kidney disease may not notice any symptoms until the condition is in its very late stages when the kidneys are failing, or when there are large amounts of protein in the urine. This is one of the reasons why only about 10% of people with chronic kidney disease know that they have it.

While the only sure way to know if you have kidney disease is to undergo testing, the following are 10 potential signs you may have kidney disease:

  • weight loss and poor appetite
  • swollen ankles, feet, or hands – as a result of water retention (edema)
  • shortness of breath
  • tiredness
  • blood in your pee (urine)
  • an increased need to pee – particularly at night
  • difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
  • itchy skin
  • muscle cramps
  • feeling sick

How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?

By filing a lawsuit against the maker of Complera, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your injury, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the drug’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective drug into the marketplace, and to discourage other pharmaceutical companies from engaging in similar conduct.
