Warning And Precaution of Lamivir HBV 100mg tablet
The warnings and precautions associated with Lamivudine (Generic Epivir and Generic Epivir HBV) therapy are:
Co-infected HIV-1/HBV Patients: Emergence of Lamivudine resistant HBV variants associated with lamivudine-containing antiretroviral regimens has been reported.
Emtricitabine-containing products should not be administered concomitantly with Lamivudine containing products.
Hepatic decompensation, some fatal, has occurred in HIV-1/HCV co-infected patients receiving interferon and Ribavirin based regimens.
Monitor for treatment associated toxicities. Discontinue Lamivir HBV and Lamivir as medically appropriate and consider dose reduction or discontinuation of interferon alfa, Ribavirin, or both.
Pancreatitis: Use with caution in pediatric patients with a history of pancreatitis or other significant risk factors for pancreatitis. Discontinue treatment as clinically appropriate.
Immune reconstitution syndrome and redistribution/accumulation of body fat have been reported in patients treated with combination antiretroviral therapy.
In patients with moderate to severe renal impairment, serum Lamivudine concentrations (AUC) are increased due to decreased renal clearance, therefore the dose should be reduced for patients with a creatinine clearance of less than 50 mL/minute.
Cases of lactic acidosis, usually associated with severe hepatomegaly and hepatic steatosis, have been reported with the use of combination nucleoside analogue therapy in patients with HIV.
