Post liver transplant antiviral management

I have a question: post liver transplant patient on Baraclude and finishing the IGHB infusion was adviced to switch on Truvada as antiviral agent instead of Baraclude and finishing the infusion sesions. Can somebody tell me if this is a better choice of managing the post liver transplant patient?

if liver transplant is managed at best and hbsg/hbvdna was not high hbsag should b negative now

truvada is a very bad option because it damages kidneys

IGHB infusion is expensive so insurance companies try to stop it but it must not be stopped, in italy it is free and it is never stopped becuase it is the most important to avoid any possibility of hbsag positive to come back

entecavir is ok as long as hbsag is negative and hbig is kept
