|Viread missed dose for Hep B
Jun 29, 2012
I missed the medication for nearly three weeks while traveling abroad. What's the consequences of it? Thank you very much!

I would contact your doctor to get some laboratories performed and then resume. If you are feeling okay then I suspect you have not had a flare of hepatitis when your virus came back (which is likely if you stopped early).
There is no risk of resistance since that has not been described with tenofovir.
