i would follow the doctor's reccomendation for the best medication needed.. most people eventually , at one point in life with treatment or even without, reach the goal of seroconverting from e antigen postive to antigen negative..
choice ot treatment method, however, should be left up to the doctor as every hepB case is unique .. hepB doesnt follow a fixed pattern with all patients.. most actually have different scenarios in their battle with hepB.

INF, though, has the highest percentage in faster seroconversion but also is highly intelorable by many..

what are your complete hepB  readings and DNA level ?  what is your liver funtion reading? when were you diagnosed ? how old are you ? what nationality are you ? i can only assume you're male from yopur name but you need to consider all ascpets before deciding on treatment ..i,e.. age,race,current status

good luck

if you can.. go for IFN... I've been being on Pega monotx since november.. and have had no sx at all.... check my thread out..

unfortunately.. I'm still hbeag+ with high VL.... but most of people who got tx have a greater chance to seroconvert even 5-10 years afteer tx interrumption..
