In brief: Usually well-tolerated.
Heptovir is the generic name for lamivudine, a hepatitis B drug.
For the most part, it is usually well-tolerated. Anyone could have side effects from the medications, however. Contact your doctor immediately if you have severe muscle pain or cramping, a sign of an allergic reaction, or severe abdominal pain. Good luck.
