Uses of Lamivir HBV
Lamivir- HBV is indicated for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B associated with evidence of hepatitis B viral replication and active liver inflammation.
Lamivir Tablets Dosage
The recommended oral dose of Lamivir- HBV for treatment of chronic hepatitis B in adults is 100 mg once daily. Safety and effectiveness of treatment beyond 1 year have not been established and the optimum duration of treatment is not known.
The formulation and dosage of lamivudine in LAMIVIR- HBV are not appropriate for patients dually infected with HBV and HIV.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Lamivudine belongs to a class of drugs called reverse transcriptase inhibitors which also includes zalcitabine (Hivid), zidovudine (Retrovir), didanosine (Videx), and stavudine (Zerit). Lamivudine first is converted within the body to its active form, lamivudine triphosphate.
This active form is similar to a chemical, deoxycytidine triphosphate, that is used by reverse transcriptase to make new DNA. The reverse transcriptase uses lamivudine triphosphate instead of deoxycytidine triphosphate, and the lamivudine triphosphate interferes with the reverse transcriptase. Lamivudine does not kill existing HIV virus, and it is not a cure for HIV.
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember.

Warnings and Precautions when using Lamivir HBV Tablets
Lamivudine can cause life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). This can be very dangerous. Let your healthcare provider know immediately if you have any signs of pancreatitis, such as:
- A tender or swollen abdomen
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia)
Lamivudine can rarely cause a condition called lactic acidosis and hepatic steatosis. It is caused by damage to the liver and can be very dangerous. You are at higher risk for this side effect if you already have liver disease.
The kidneys help remove lamivudine from the body. If you have kidney disease, your healthcare provider may need to monitor you more closely and may recommend a lower lamivudine dosage.
Lamivudine can change the distribution of fat on your body. You may gain fat in areas that are not typical for you, such as in the abdomen or at the back of the neck (a "buffalo hump"), and may lose weight in other areas.
Sometimes, stopping lamivudine can cause a worsening of a hepatitis B infection. If you stop taking lamivudine, you should be monitored very closely to make sure you do not develop any problems.
Lamivudine is not a cure for HIV or AIDS. If you have HIV or AIDS, you should always use safer sex practices, regardless of whether you are taking medications.
