In brief: Depends

There are several treatments for hepatitis b, but choosing one depends on the length of your exposure.
For immediate treatment after infection: vaccination + globulins are given. For chronic stable: adefovir, pegylate interferon or/and entecavir. For chronic: there are several combinations of drugs acting on two of the virus's receptors. Please seek treatment from your primary care physician.
