A friend of mine in a prison was diagnosed 24 months ago with HBV. He has begged them for treatment ever since and finally, with about 10 months to go before he's released, they started him on Epivir (I think the generic, actually). I'm trying to get information to him since the medical facility, Wexford, is next to incompetent. How long does one stay on Epivir? I thought 90 days (100 mg per day)...but...? The medical records person I spoke with (I'm on his release of information form, HIPAA) said the treatment costs $40,000 per month, which is a bit bizarre and questioned why he started it (as if that were his choice) since he has only 10 months to go. Just trying to help him. Any info is great. THANKS!!!
