Truvada & Viramune
Jun 28, 2013

On waking, my night shirt appears to have develop small holes around area in the front and the area that urine sometimes splatters. All of my night t-shirts have holes in that area. Could this be caused by the Truvada or Viramune the expelled urine? This is a strange question but is actually happening... and I am afraid that these drugs will eventually destroy my organs.

Response from Dr. Henry

To my knowledge toxic/acidic urine splatters linked to actual kidney or organ damage have not been linked to use of nevirapine + Truvada (assuming your HIV provider has monitored your level of renal funciton and no concerns identified). I would inform your HIV provider about your interesting observation. KH
