Propability of getting side effect from tenofovir antiviral pills


Medicine can have side effects.
What is the propability of side effects of tenofovir, where are the stats ? 1% or less then 1% ?


Hi @hepb1, yes, there are always side effects with any drugs, including the common aspirin. The best place to read up on the risk percentages of tenofovir (TDF) side effects is both the package insert and website or in the U.S. the National Library of Medicine maintains a drug medline with reliable information. The most significant side effects of TDF are bone loss and kidney issues. Although I never had kidney problems (and this is monitored regularly by evaluating kidney-related blood labs), I developed osteoporosis which is why my doctor switched me to Vemlidy. Thanks for asking good questions! Always, Joan
