Does anyone else have experience using artemisia for HHV-6? My doctor has recommended I take it. He said research has shown it to be effective. My doctor also wrote me a prescription for valcyte. But, 450mg per day of valcyte would cost me $3,800 per month and I can not afford it. Taking valcyte will be problematic anyways since I already have leukopenia, neutropenia, and a low platelet count. Correction: My doctor wrote me a prescription for 60 pills of 450mg valcyte with three refills. I would guess the prescription is for 30 days, hence I would be taking 900mg valcyte per day. Which explains why Costco told me my prescription would cost $3,800.
