Patients must meet the following criteria for the indication(s) above:

  • Prescribed by or in collaboration with a specialist; AND

  • Diagnosis of chronic HBV in adults with compensated liver disease; AND

  • Use is not recommended in those with CrCl < 15mL/minute or if Child-Pugh class B or C
  • Hepatic enzymes, ALT and AST, should be monitored during therapy
  • HIV testing: HIV antibody testing should be offered to all HBV infected patients prior to treatment initiation
  • HIV and HBV coinfection: Should not be used as a single agent for the treatment of HIV due to resistance development risk
