Hello. To answer your 2 different concerns pl (without knowing why you have been prescribed budesonide for lung? Long term or short term use?). Budesonide and arvs- since you are using darunavir/ritonavir combo along with budesonide, it would be advisable to avoid budesonide use as its level may get increased, be it in any form, inhaler or spray, by ritonavir. The preferred alternative is beclamethasone.

Lamivudine is a prescription medicine approved for the treatment of HIV infection in adults and children 3 months of age and older. Lamivudine is always used in combination with other HIV medicines. Hep B does not need any specific medicine and it is curable without medicine in most people Most adults with hepatitis B recover fully, even if their signs and symptoms are severe. Infants and children are more likely to develop a chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis B infection. A vaccine can prevent hepatitis B, but there's no cure if you have the condition
