Ahhhh terrywillbeok you know what happened today, my prescription was 0.5mg of entecavir but the KP pharmacist gave  me a 1mg entecavir and she told me to cut it in to two halfs & your post helped me after asked her the dose she gave me a little equipment where you can cut the pill into two halfs.

Use 0.5 mg of entacavir, 1 mg is used for those who developed resistance from another drug. Avoid cutting process of entacavir 1mg u will not get equally dose daily it will harm u

1mg makes no difference it is ok, no sides even at that dose

while potency is about same, it failed to work on resistant patients, only tenofovir works on any resistance and is the most potent especially on hbsag.

clearance of hbsag by tenofovir is reported to happen at 17years while 50% of patients are below 1000iu/ml by year 5 already

Check about tdf effect on hbsag (very few studies about it) and consider a switch to it
it has also less potential sides on mitocondria after decades of use

Stif2011 I already started taking the entecavir cutting into two halfs, do you think i have to stop that & start taking the whole 1mg with out splitting it in two? I am so scared taking of more dose might harm to the condition of F2 stage I have. Appreciate your help.

I dont think it is a good idea to take whole pil 1gm.cuz u have 45pils , that is not enough for 90 days.   Just cut it to half and take it . if u are scared , change to aother hospital ( I did that ).

that s a big problem of yours, those pills are made not to be cut on purpose by drug maker and they even made a shape of the pill to make it even less homogeneous to cut it

in the instructions in the box of etv that i dont use anymore it is said not to cut
