my partner was put on truvada and after 2 days he start feeling sick and got bad headaches 1 week after he was addmitted to hospital and they found a bloodclot in his brain could this be a side effect to truvada

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

I'm very sorry to hear about your partner. I'd be very surprised if his blood clot has anything to do with the switch to tenofovir/FTC (Truvada); rather, I'd have to wonder about his overall medical condition- related to the situation that may have prompted the medication switch in the first place.

Best of health to you and him,
