Applies to: adefovir and Baraclude (entecavir)

Adefovir can affect kidney function and may increase the blood levels and effects of entecavir when used together. Contact your doctor if you experience increased side effects or your condition changes. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience extreme tiredness or weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, muscle pain, difficulty breathing, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, and/or a fast or irregular heart beat, as these may be signs and symptoms of a serious medical condition known as lactic acidosis that can sometimes occur during treatment with medications like entecavir.
