Hepatitis B :: Viread Side Effects?

Dec 3, 2015

I have hepatitis b infection in the liver. I need your advise if I should take viread medication if I have osteopenia and my kidney is not the best? I am currently taking osteopenia pill. Please advise and help. Thanks a lot. I am worried about viread side effects on me. Another question is if I take the medicine, can I ever stop taking the medicine? Is it a life term medicine I have to take?

Hepatitis B :: Viread Treatment

I have been diagnosed with Hep B. I was admitted to hospital with exceptional readings (ALT >4,000, bilirubin 180, all pho 162, gamma get 417, AST >2,500). I've been given various drips and the numbers are coming down. ALT has now halved. In addition to the drips I was also put on Viread.

My physician was concerned how my immune system was attacking the liver and between all treatments, in three days the readings are coming down. My jaundice is going and my urine now looking paler (almost normal).

Given the symptoms indicate a severe acute response to infection, does this suggest my body will put up a good fight to rid itself of the virus. Also, is there a risk Viread could actually lead to my body not developing the antibodies? I've read the following study, which suggests Viread can be highly effective in treating severe acute Hep B and also assist (or at least not inhibit) the development of antibodies.

Hepatitis B :: Viread Generic Or Brand

My doctor let me have Viread. I checked online at pharmacy checker. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate Tablet and Viread Tablet, are they the same in treatment wise? I went to CVS store, it cost 1000 USD to 30/300mg for Viread Tablet. is it too expensive? The staff there told me generic tablet is not available. But why I see it online as I said earlier?

What happens if I take brand and then switch to generic like a year later? Will the generic medicine do the same?

Hepatitis B :: Viread And Hair Loss

So I've been taking viread before bed for the last 4 years. My hair has been receding and falling out throughout those years. It is now getting really aggressive and noticeable. I stopped taking viread for a month to see if it would reverse and sure enough it did. It came back full and thick. Yesterday I took viread again and half of what came back began falling out. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions? I'm still young and my parents have good hair. What can I do to stop or prevent? I tried taking biotin but it seems its not enough

Hepatitis B :: Hep B DNA Flare Up During Tenofovir Treatment/viread

When I first began treatment with pegasys in january 2014, GGT was 60 (normal max is 35), ASAT 51 (normal max 35), ALAT 76 (normal 10-40), LDH/Bili/CK all within normal range. With pegasys, a few months later down the line, the values continued to go higher. At their highest, GGT 223, ASAT 116, ALAT 156, LDH 274, Bili/CK remained within normal range.

At the beginning of the treatment, Hep B ie/ml  was 2400. Four months later, it became 2600.  When I was shifted to tenofovir/Viread three or months after beginning treatment since pegasys wasn't solving the issue, the ASAT, ALAT, LDH came back down to normal levels quite fast.  So I have been on viread ever since.

10 months after beginning treatment, Hep B ie/ml was down to 1800. In 2015, it was less than 150. Hep B Dna was undetected by May 2015.  I get regular blood tests every three months since the start of the treatment.  

Yesterday's blood test showed:   ASAT 36 (normal max 35), ALAT 38 (normal 40, but having checked past blood tests, it seems in the last few months it has been gaining one or two points steadily so this is worrying me), LDH and Bili are normal. The bad news: Heb B DNA detected...and IE/ml was a whopping 3400!!!! More than when I started started treatment!

The first thing I was asked was whether I missed a dose of viread. Answer is no. However, I have had incidents where I did forget to take it on time, but it has never exceeded 5 hours (still, I know, it's a huge gap). Not a lot of times, but I find that I am beating myself over this now, as it may be the reason I am having a viral overload and maybe made the virus resistant to viread.

Since taking viread, I have experienced and continue to experience extreme muscle pain (I ended up in the hospital once when diclofenac  failed me and I needed an extra morphine shot to get relief). I am continuously tired, some days it is a real struggle to move (feels like going through mud - heavy body, wanting to simply just crash on the floor). I have not had a pain free day in the last two years and worse, kidney stones! I am already prone to them, but I can't get over the suspicion that Viread has ensured I have a stone that needs to be taken out each year.

I've read that viread is one of the best treatment there is (hardly any side effects, probability of virus resistance low) so my latest blood test is worrying me no end. I am not due for another DNA test until 6 months later. I've also read that ASAT and ALAT values can increase and it's not necessarily liver related (I think my ongoing and increasing muscle pain is reflecting higher ASAT and ALAT values but who knows?!?).  

My doctor says that as long as those values remain within normal range and not in the hundreds, it should be ok. But there is this unspoken thought that I am in deep trouble if the DNA continues to manifest and my liver enzyme values continue to increase.  My liver scan in 2014 has me a point JUST before entering cirrhosis stage. I can't help but think I may have actually crossed that line already (the cassandra in me speaking) though I am assured that viread treatment tends to pull back the damage.

My question..Has anyone ever experienced a viral increase during the viread treatment, and if so, was it temporary, or was viread stopped? I am not sure how to read/interpret  this ie/ml, but the fact that it has increased can't be good news at all.

Hepatitis B :: Viral Load Still Around 200 IU After 3 Years Of Viread

I have been on Viread for three years and my viral load never goes undetectable. The viral load went down in the past two years. However, it has been up and down in the range of 100 to 300 IU in the past year. It seems that it will never go down to undetectable. The test for mutation failed three times because of very low viral load. Am I non-responder to Viread? Should I switch to another treatment? Should I be concerned?

Ramipril :: Side Effects

I am a 47 year old male (right weight for height) and reasonably fit running three times a week who has recently had to visit the doctor (first time in years) for severe neck pain caused by strenuous gardening work -so called leisure.

However my blood pressure was checked over the past few weeks and has found to be continuously very high ranging 190/115 to 150/90. My GP has decided to put me on ramipril starting with 2.5mg increasing to 5 mg and then 10mg over six weeks. On reading the comments about side effects I am really concerned which has now possibly increased my blood pressure further - really concerned on what to do, should I get a second opinion through my private medical before starting this treatment?

Oxytetracycline Bad Side Effects

I used the tablets for 5 months and a bit, should be taking it for 6 months but i decide to give into not taking them due to really bad side effects.

When i started, i took 2 TWICE a day for 4 months but, rashes appeared on my cheeks, completely red and skin dried also on my nose. I couldn't bear the suffering, i applied creams like E45 (made things worse for me) then i switched to sudocrem, applying it to my face where the rashes were. this seemed to help stop the rash from getting any worse. I went to see the doctor who said i should cut down on the tabs to 1 Twice a day so i finally started to heal from the rashes. I carried on using the tabs this way until the rashes appeared on my nose again, it was really bad.

To those who suffer from Eczema, be warned as this course may effect it, making it really bad. This is the reason why i have to quit from this 6 month course (am finishing on 5 and a bit months) As for acne, it helped clear it up nicely even old scars until a point where my skin could heal no further ( i stayed the same after the 3rd month) so hopefully, changes are permanent and my side effects will go away from stopping this course.

Ramipril :: Problematic Side Effects

Put on this drug for HBP 2.5mg then 5 mgs had various problematic side effects went to doctor to advise him of my problems with this drug. He then increased the dosage to 10 mgs which I have taken now for 2 months and the problems have multiplied to a point when I have become so ill with all the problems highlighted in these messages that I stopped taking the drug and started to feel better within 3 days. I wonder now what the reaction will be from my GP when I tell him that I want to try an alternative drug. Having high blood pressure I could do without worrying about his comments which other people have endured when they have asked to have an alternative drug.
