I fear carcinoma (HCC) eventually, i was not a drinker ,after recovery can i drink some alcoohol a little quantity about (once)15 ml whyski weekly ?, When i stop take lamivudine 100 mg ?
once the lamivudine has been started it is difficult to discontinue it without changing it to another medication. it is possible that you have developed resistance and may need to check a viral level and if (+) be switched to another medication. Resistance is very common with lamivudine use. a CT scan or U/s should also be checked.
Thank you for your reply.
I understood what you explained me about it. Should I check blood test on HBV/DNA/PCR or HBsAg (Quantity) ? If resistance of lamivudine, what name of the drug will be changed?
- If the HBsAb become Positive level, my liver working well or not?
- What drugs can't I use? (Avoid hepatotoxic) when I got diarrhea - Headache or fever.
you can use most drugs with your liver--you must check with your local doc when a new one is started or proposed. if there islamivudine resistance adefovir or tenofovir can be used. you should check a HBV-DNA.
