Final Thoughts on Epivir Side Effects

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the Epivir side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether any particular side effect (such as nausea) is actually caused by Epivir or other factors. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Epivir or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
