My elderly mother found out that she has hepatitis B when she was in the hospital. No treatment was prescribed. The doctors said that she could live with this disease for 10-20 years. Unfortunately, every year my mother’s condition worsened. Fibrosis (grade 3) began to progress, in addition, other chronic diseases also worsened. I find out about Meravir accidentally from a hepatologist. He advised to start treatment immediately until there was a severe deterioration.
Mom took Meravir for one year. Also she took other medicine as a treatment for other chronic diseases. Meravir is compatible with most of them, but we have previously consulted a doctor what can be taken and what not. Within 3 months, the viral load has decreased significantly. And after 12 months, the tests showed that the virus in my mother’s blood isn’t detected.
Our family was very worried that at this age side effects can strongly manifest. Mom was bothered by a slight drowsiness, and we aren’t sure that it was caused by taking Meravir. Perhaps it was caused by other tablets.
Do not despair, hepatitis B is treated at any age. We have seen this on our own example!
