We advise you to not discontinue any treatment course on your own, especially that related to antivirals for hepatitis B. Hepatitis B treatment can also be life-long in some cases.

We recommend you to see a liver specialist, then discuss all available options, as well as their risk/side effects/patients eligibility/pre-operative measures/tips to deal with side effects as well as your health conditions & family hisotry, and then allow the specialist to tailor your treatment for you.

You can use this page to find specialists - Hepatologists in Mumbai. And reach out to me, any specialist working in the relevant field, or clinicspots team if you have any other doubt.
