Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
After going through your history you are HBs Ag Positive, if HBe Ag is negative still you are infected and carrier but disease is not active at present, so you need to take care and proper follow up is required.
Periodically liver function and other tests may be repeated to know the activity of disease so treatment may be given at appropriate time if required.
Your family members spouse and children must be vaccinated after testing properly against Hepatitis B.
The drug in question which you are using may not be of any help.
In due course the virus may be eliminated by good immunity.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
Good Luck.

Gastroenterologist Dr. Amit Jain's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

You may be inactive carrier of Hepatitis B, if SGOT and SGPT are also normal and HBe antibody is positive which you haven't mentioned. If inactive carrier then you don't need any treatment at present

You need to be on regular follow up with a Gastroenterologist as it may become active later on. You require few tests regularly so that once it is active, treatment can be considered.

If HBs Antigen is positive it means you are infected

I don't think Liv52 is of any help.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
