I was going through some old emails and found this. Has anyone seen this or know what his protocol is for acyclovir? I cannot take Valtrex or Famvir. I'm currently on 1600 mgs acyclovir and it does help me. I have HHV-6 but had severe HSV in college. Since being on the Acyclovir I have not had a single outbreak. Below is a 6 month protocol "Dr. Montoya says many people with HSV1 and/or HSV2 make very good improvements on the high dose acyclovir after 12 to 18 months. 800—30 days 1600—60 days 2400—90 days"
