I have been on lamivudine and adefovir for 4 years (after resistance to 6 years of lamivudine).I have developed renal tubulopathy because of the toxic effect of adefovir.my DNA is undetectable ALAT ASAT normal.My doctor advised me to take lamivudine every day and adefovir just one pill every 48 hours.He also thinks that he might put me on Baraclude(entecavir) monotherapy.What do you think? Please advise me .Thanks very much for your help.
thank you very much for paying attention to my problem and advising me but you know , we live in Morocco and our doctors don't know anything about these new medicines .The last time I saw my doctor he told me that he never heard of someone getting renal problems with Adefovir and that he needed some time to tell me what the next treatment would be (and that I should stay now with lamivudine and Adefovir for 2 more weeks and see what happens to my phosphorous and creatinine levels _Adefovir just one pill every 48hours and lamivudine one pill every day .According to you only TENOFOVIR is good for me . I shouldn't take Baraclude(are you a doctor?) THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP;
your only choice is tenofovir because youare already resistanct to all other drugs, no other choice left.if you take baraclude it ll work sometime and then you ll develo 3 or more othe mutations, all this can lead you to death with nothing left to save you and once you are dead the only person you can thanks for this is the butcher (not a doctor).there is no excuse we have internet and you can be on the moon and get all the info
this said that tenofovir is the only drug that can work on hbv for you due to your good doctor it is also the less toxic drug, the cheapest, the most potent with no resistance and the most studied.tenofovir is available since 2000, together with lamivudine is the oldest drug, so strange your doctor knows the latest drugs which are the most expensive and also a damage for you
