attention entecavir works only in naive patients and even in naive patients it has 1,2% resistance, truvada is tenofovir+ftc (ftc similar drug to lam) in combo to prevent resistance and of coruse it has zero resistance until now
entecavir is also less potent than tenofovir, tenofovir is the only drug with zero resistance until now, all other drugs have resistance mutations
entecavir mght be used in case of adefovir resistance or even better a combo of tenofovir and entecavir
no it interfere with antivirals, you might use NAC which is much more potent antioxidant, it will protect kidneys also, i had a creatinine increase early sept from 1.03 to 1.2 (still normal values) after NAC for about a week it got to 0.9 (my baseline values before taking drugs 0.95), 0.8 is the minimum normal range.
NAC is an antioxidant without sides dose 1200-2400mg daily, it is used toprevent kidneys damage before injecting dyes as contrast for particular tests, in case of intoxication to avoid liver failure, in case you are exposed to radioactivity
