Response from Dr. McGovern

Hepsera is another name for adefovir, which is an anti-hepatitis B drug. Yes your physician is correct that it is possible to treat your liver disease effectively with medications.

You will need monitoring during the time on treatment to see how your virus is responding to this particular medicine.
