Description

What is Hepsera used for? 

Hepsera, with the generic name adefovir dipivoxil, is an oral medication indicated to treat chronic hepatitis B among patients 12 years of age and above. Hepatitis B is a chronic viral infection of the liver spread through blood, semen, and other body fluids. This possible life-threatening infection is characterized by fever, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, dark urine, and yellowish eyes and skin. 

This is available in Hepsera 10 mg tablet form. 

How does Hepsera work? 

This nucleotide analog works by inhibiting the hepatitis B virus DNA polymerase or reverse transcriptase through competing with natural substrate deoxyadenosine triphosphate (dATP) and also, causing DNA chain termination after it has been incorporated into viral DNA. As a result, this medication slows down the growth of the virus, which helps lower the amount of virus in the body.
