Apo Entecavir How to Take

Entecavir belongs to a group of medications called antivirals. It is used to treat people with chronic hepatitis B infection with evidence of active hepatitis B virus replication (reproduction) and evidence of liver damage. It works by stopping the hepatitis B virus from reproducing. There is no cure for hepatitis B infection. Entecavir can decrease the amount of hepatitis B virus in the body and may reduce the damage done to the liver by the hepatitis B virus.

Apo Entecavir may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Entecavir may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Apo Entecavir Dosage

The usual recommended dose for adults and adolescents 16 years of age and older is 0.5 mg once daily. People who have experienced active disease while taking a similar medication called lamivudine may need to take 1 mg once daily. People with reduced kidney function may require a lower dose, as directed by their doctor.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Apo Entecavir Precautions

There may be an interaction between entecavir and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Apo Entecavir. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Apo Entecavir Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Apo Entecavir.

Hepatitis B transmission: Treatment with entecavir does not reduce the risk of passing on hepatitis B to other people through sexual contact and blood transfer. You should continue to take measures to prevent giving hepatitis B to other people (e.g., using condoms) while taking Apo Entecavir.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV): People with HIV infection should discuss with their doctor how Apo Entecavir may affect their medical condition. If you are taking entecavir for chronic hepatitis B and are not taking any medications for HIV at the same time, some HIV medications that you take in the future may not work as well to treat HIV. Entecavir has not been studied for the treatment of HIV. Your doctor may test you for HIV before beginning treatment with entecavir. If you think that you might have HIV, contact your doctor immediately to get tested.

Kidney function: Apo Entecavir is removed from the body by the kidneys. If the kidneys are not working properly, entecavir may build up in the body and cause side effects. People with reduced kidney function may need a different dose of the medication. If you have decreased kidney function or Kidney Disease, discuss with your doctor how Apo Entecavir may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Entecavir, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Lactic acidosis and enlarged liver: Entecavir can cause a rare but serious condition called lactic acidosis (buildup of lactic acid in the blood) together with an enlarged liver and fat in the liver. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

  • abdominal pain, swelling, or bloating
  • dark-coloured urine

Liver transplant: The safety and effectiveness of entecavir has not been tested in people who have had a liver transplant. It is not known if entecavir will interact with anti-rejection medications (i.e., Cyclosporine, Tacrolimus) commonly used after an organ transplant. If you have had a liver transplant, discuss with your doctor how Apo Entecavir may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Entecavir, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Stopping the medication: If you stop taking entecavir, your hepatitis B infection could get worse. Take the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor, and do not stop taking the medication without checking with your doctor first.
