Adefovir is employed to address chronic hepatitis B infection, a liver swelling caused by a virus. It belongs to a class of medications known as nucleotide analogs. The primary mechanism of action involves reducing the quantity of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) within the body. While adefovir can help manage hepatitis B, it does not serve as a cure and may not prevent potential complications like cirrhosis of the liver or liver cancer associated with chronic hepatitis B.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally with or without food, as instructed by your doctor, typically once daily. The prescribed dosage is contingent upon your medical condition and how you respond to the treatment.

Consistently use this medication to derive the maximum benefit. To aid in remembering, take it at the same time each day.

Refrain from adjusting your dose or discontinuing the medication without explicit instructions from your doctor or pharmacist.

Ensure that you refill your prescription before it runs out.

Note that using adefovir alone is not suitable for patients co-infected with both hepatitis B and HIV. An HIV test is recommended before and during treatment to ensure appropriate care.

Be vigilant for any worsening of your condition, diminished response to treatment, or the possibility of infection by resistant strains of the virus during or after treatment. Promptly inform your doctor of any new symptoms that arise during or after treatment.
