    I got my Famvir yesterday and I'm feeling pretty bad right now. Mild nausea, headache, and totally wrung out.

    I would like to lower the dose to 125 mgs 2x/day but the tabs are not scored. I thought you shouldn't split something if it isn't scored.

    Can I split them?

    You're up late!

    I'm feeling sick so I wonder if splitting a 250 mg and doing 125 mg twice a day would help or prolong the agony.

    I know. What is wrong with you? Maybe you should start chugging your Pepsi Max?

    wouldnt hurt to try 125mg twice a day. Sounds like maybe famvir is hitting bugs the acyclovir wasnt getting. If it gets rough back down to dosing once a day for awhile if needed??

    That's what I'm thinking to Heaps. All sorts of new little critters getting zapped. I can put up with a lot, I just hate nausea.

    I took 250mgs this a.m. won't take any more today.

    Just googled it. It's not that bad. Just a tinge. Seems to be getting better.

    I also just remembered I took some Senna last night and it was a different kind than I had before so maybe that is it. I'll see how the day goes.

    @Sparrowhawk ,

    Thanks. My nausea is mostly better but this morning it wasn't severe at all. Just sort of there. The biggest problem I'm having is I"m in a total fog. I can barely open my eyes or think straight. I feel like I haven't slept for days.

    Ugh, this is miserable.
