The Benefits Of Antiviral Drugs To Overcome Hepatitis B?
Afternoon, I am Reza, my grandfather is affected by Hepatitis B, the medicine has been given, namely tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, I ask what are the benefits of the drug tenofovir disoproxil fumarate?
Hello Putra Reza, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (TDF) is a drug that belongs to the group of antiviral drugs that can be used to kill the Hepatitis B virus as your grandfather is currently suffering.
This drug works by inhibiting the work of one of the enzymes in the body of the virus so that it inhibits the multiplication of the Hepatitis B virus in the body.
For a dose of 300mg it is indeed the recommended dosage for use in patients with Hepatitis B and is the result of various studies which state that the dose is effective in inhibiting the multiplication of the hepatitis B virus.
At present, it is highly recommended that you take the medicine according to your grandfather's doctor's instructions, and if it is recommended to re-control it, do it according to what the doctor recommends.
I hope this helps.
