meds

Hi! Please see below the meds prescribed by my gastro:

B complex 3/day
Essential forte 3/day for six months
Lamivudine 1/day for one year

I have read articles about Lamivudine and there are side effects. Will I start to take Lamivudine? Please help me. Thanks!

lamivudine is not an hbv drug anymore, ban of it has been proposed already because it only worsen the infection

the only drugsare: tenofovir, peginterferon, entecavir, none is curative except two cases:
peginterferon when hbsag is less than 1000-1500iu/ml
sequential treatment of 3 years tenofovir or entecavir and peginterferon add on 1-2years (5years total)

be aware most liver specialist are ignorant about hbv and poor countries have corrupt doctors prescribing damaging drugs, tenofovir generic is available online for countries without this drug
