    Hi everyone. I have read every thread here (and elsewhere that I can find) relating to Valtrex and Valcyte for CFS. I really appreciate all the input here and at Health Rising!

    I realize that experts typically treat HHV6 with Valcyte and often treat EBV and HSV with Valtrex or Famvir.

    Is there anyone here who has tested positive both EBV and HHV6 who has had ANY measure of success using Valtrex only? If so, can you please share how much you take and how long it took to experience improvement?

    My doctor agreed to let me try Valtrex 500 mg. 3 x daily for at least 6 months to start with orders to do liver/kidney blood tests every 12 weeks. I've been on it for two weeks. The first week I had some pretty heavy flu-like side effects and malaise, but now I just have more fatigue than usual- nothing I can't handle at this point. I'm hoping this a good sign that the Vatrex may do something positive.

    I've been disabled for over 31 years and have tested positive for HSV, EBV, and HHV6.

    I simply cannot afford Valcyte or to see a CFS specialist.

    Thank you!

    Yes I test positive to EBV and HHV-6 but I will not get Valtrex or other antiviral antil many more dr. Do their testing to rule out other thinks like lupus , cancers .... ,so my recovery is being delayed .. I hope that makes sense

    @Mollymolly - Makes perfect sense and it's absolutely necessary to rule out those other things. Holding a good thought for you.
