Where to find Baraclude Entecavir?

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately, one week ago I was informed that I have Hep B. My doctor advised me to take Baraclude Entecavir. This medicine is very expensive in my country. It costs around 1000 USDA per month. My doctor told me that I can get it cheaper from India, but he also told me that there generic Entecavir in the Indian market. He insisted that I get Baraclude. Now, which pharmacies provide Baraclude in India?

please, help me. I have to start the treatment asap.

Thanks

first of all baraclude is not an hbv cure and being positive to hbv doesn t mean you have to take drugs, especially antivirals which have no effect on hbv they can only block liver damage so if you have no liver damage there is no reason to take it

second your doctor, from your post, sounds like a drug seller and not a doctor

third, baraclude and indian generics are the same thing, there is no reason to buy the most expensive one

these are the tests needed to know your status and if antivirals are necessary:

find a better doctor, liver specialist and updated one
fibroscan, this will tell if you have liver damage
hbsag quantity by abbott architect in iu/ml, this will tell if interferon can clear hbv once and for all

complementary tests:
hbvdna, hbeag, ast/alt,ultrasound

if you like  our opinion post tests results and second liver specialst consult

Thanks you so much for your respond.

Actually the doctor I'm visiting is the best in the region :).

as per the results, the HBV is active and the viral load is 1321 copies/mL.

How can I send  test result. I can send electronic copy.

Thanks

By the way, what do you think about Entavir 0.5ml made by Cipla?

hbvdna alone means nothing and is a totally useless test alone without the main tests fibroscan and hbsag quant

active hbv means nothing too, the damage is done by our immune systems failing to clear the virus and not the hbv virus itself so just check the tests i menthioned to know liver damage and hbv status
