Truvada

Truvada is a medication used for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) to reduce the risk of HIV infection. It can also be used to treat HIV in combination with other medicines.

While Truvada has eliminated much of the anxiety and fear surrounding HIV and AIDS, especially within the LGBTQ community, the drug has been linked to the weakening of bones and other potentially life-threatening side effects.
