Thanks for posting your query.
ALT > 60 suggest that you have active disease while your HBeAg is negative. This suggest that you may have infection with precore mutant virus.
You should go for liver biopsy for quantifying the disease activity.
There are multiple good medicines are available and now cheaper also, such as Entecavir, Tenofovir, Tebuvidine.
You should consult with gastro-physician and should take one of these medicines on written prescription.
This will take time for negative of HBsAg.
Take Care,
