wat shud the infected person take for his/her illness with hepa b?

Response from Dr. McGovern

First you need to determine if you need treatment in the first place. This will be done by careful consultation with a hepatologist or infectious disease doctor.

Then options include: entecavir, pegylated interferon, adefovir, telbivudine, lamivudine, or emtricitabine.
