Increasing Famciclovir to 250mg 3 times a day Day 2

Blog entry posted by lnester7, Oct 17, 2013.

Sooo I increased slowly for the past week and added half a pill of famciclovir but yesterday I added the full pill AND OHHH MY. I got full blown flue like symptoms and muscle aches, also burning on the back around the spine.

It has been rough 2 days, but in another way I have more energy. I did a lot around the house which I haven't done in a very long time.

I forgot how rough the herxing can be, is the hardest at night when I take the third pill. I hope this will pass soon or I will go back down to the half at night only.

In a sense it was good, because I know how the over stimulation of the immune system feels like, so I can avoid in the future. I also increased the AHCC to 2 pills twice a day.

    well I get the NK tested every 6 months anyways so my next test is in feb or april, I will let you know if it really helped. But I will keep the imunovir also, but like I have been on it for 2 years now we can tell that is not it.
