Im on 40wks of telbivudine, at 20wks of treatment, my hbvdna become undectable from 6,000 iu. I have read many post regarding telbivudine. My question is can I shift telbivudine to entacavir or other drug or just continue telbivudine till it become resistant?
Ty sir stef, I will just continue telbivudine till I developed resistance before taking tenofovir. The problem here in the philippines, tenofovir is not avaiable. It is free for those who has hiv infection patients. Regulated by our department of health.
it doesn t matter you can have it prescribed off label,
the corruption in the phillipines is incredible you are banned from use of the main and most potent hbv drug but you can use useless hbv drugs that are banned worldwide, you should act on your goverment and get them all to resign, it is really a shame you can tollerate such fraud
