I'm a 22 year old female living in South Africa.I've been on a trial study for a drug called entecavir(0.5mg) for 5months now. Since being on thsi drug my viral load has dropped significantly(680 000 000 - 555).I am pleased with the results but i've had my viral load drop to 360 before when i was on Pegylated Interferon.My liver functions are also normal. I just need to know that what are the chances of the above mentioned going up again like they did after the interferon?
Thanks for the advice. I still have lots of questions about the drug ie: side effects. Is there anything else you can tell me about the drug. IFN gave so much side effects & i haven't been able to get rid of some even today.
