Method of Usage

Entecavir

 

What is Entecavir?

 

Entecavir is a prescription drug that treats chronic hepatitis B infection in adults.

 

Doctors also recommend it to treat liver damage in children 2 years age and older.

 

The viral cause of hepatitis B is the hepatitis B virus, which results in liver infection.

 

Long-term infection can lead to liver damage, and rarely liver cancer & liver failure.

 

This medication does not treat hepatitis B. It does not stop spread of virus to others via sexual contact or blood contamination.

 

Under the US brand name Baraclude, Entecavir is available. After a doctor’s prescription, you can order this medicine from a licensed pharmacy.

 

However, you can save on Entecavir price by ordering it from an online drugstore and avail discounts.

 

Entecavir uses

 

Doctors recommend Entecavir for:

 

  • Treatment of hepatitis B virus (HBV)

 

How does Entecavir work?

 

Entecavir is an antiviral medication that belongs to a class of drugs called Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor (NRTI).

 

It works by preventing multiplication of viruses in human cells. This further stops virus from producing new viruses and clears up infection.
