Entecavir: Check out http://www.Drugs.Com/sfx/baraclude-side-effects.Html for side effects of Baraclude (entecavir). Your father should speak w/his hepatologist/gastroenterologist about what to expect from his hepatitis b infection vs what to expect from his treatment, as well as signs/symptoms to report immediately. This applies to any & all conditions managed w/your physician.
