kidney damage from truvada
Jun 9, 2010

my doctor switched my truvada with epzicon, i feel twinges of pain in one kidney. can my kidney damage get better.and should i be concerned about the pain in my kidney. it is not a kidney stone.

Response from Dr. Henry

Tenofovir related kidney damage often will reverse. There rarely is pain in the kidney directly from the tenofovir and pain in the flank can be due to a variety of non-kidney problems so a full clinical evaluation is recommended if persistent or worsening.KH
