Recently, I've heard that there is a new drug called Zeffix lamivudine for chronic hep B. I've got a few questions in regards to this drug:-
1. Is it really useful for chronic Hepatitis B?
2. What are the criteria that one has to meet before he/she can try/use this drug?
3. I've heard that it has lesser side effects as compared to interferon.....but what are those side effects of this drug?
4. Can a person with other kind of ailments such as kidney disorder,diabetes and hypertension try on this drug?
5. What is the average cost of this drug per month or per dosage?
