Tyzeka does not stop you from spreading HBV to others by sex, sharing needles, or being exposed to your blood. Talk with your health care provider about safe sexual practices that protect your partner. Never share needles. Do not share personal items that can have blood or body fluids on them, like toothbrushes or razor blades. A shot (vaccine) is available to protect people at risk from becoming infected with HBV, such as partners of patients with HBV.

  • Take Tyzeka exactly as prescribed. Your health care provider will tell you how much Tyzeka to take. The usual dose of Tyzeka is 600 mg one time each day. Your dose may be lower if you have kidney problems.
  • Tyzeka may be taken with or without food.
  • To help you remember to take your Tyzeka, try to take it at the same time each day.
    • Do not change your dose or stop taking Tyzeka without talking to your health care provider first.
    • Tell your health care provider if you have trouble swallowing tablets. Tyzeka also comes as a liquid (oral solution) that you can drink.
    • If you forget to take Tyzeka, take it as soon as you remember and then take your next dose at the regular time. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses at the same time. Call your health care provider or pharmacist if you are not sure what to do.
    • If you take more than your prescribed dose of Tyzeka, call your health care provider right away.

It is important to stay under your health care provider's care while taking Tyzeka. Your health care provider will regularly test the level of the hepatitis B virus in your blood.
