Hi, I've seen the topic of acyclovir come up in several other threads but I haven't seen it as the topic of its own thread. I have been on acyclovir for nearly six weeks so my experience is limited. I was hoping to create a space where those using (or who used to use) acyclovir could share experiences and those interested could ask questions. To get things started, I guess my first questions would be: Have you used acyclovir? For How long? Did you start right out at a target dose or did you gradually increase your dosage? Why did you start on Acyclovir? What symptoms led you to acyclovir? Were there lab results that led you to acyclovir? Were there side effects that have caused you to lower your dose or to stop using acyclovir? Has acyclovir made any difference in your health status (for better or worse)? Anything else anyone cares to add. Thanks, Shane PS. I wanted to get this up but I'll be happy to start in with another post or I can just join in if the conversation gets started before I have that chance.
