Hep B - Sustiva
Oct 17, 2007
My doctor is about to start me on Truvada/Sustiva - I read that Sustiva can cause activate liver problems. Does the fact that I had Hep B in 1995, but have recovered from it now, make any difference?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
If you've recovered from HBV infection, there shouldn't be any problems taking the tenofovir/FTC (Truvada) +efavirenz (Sustiva) regimen. Indeed, many would say that Truvada is the drug of choice for coinfected persons with active HBV anyways.
