    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"

    That's what I don't know. Someone sent me that in an email from someone they knew who was doing that protocol with Montoya.

    So that's exactly what I want to know.

    I'm thinking you stay at the 2,400 dose after the 6 months. I've read about 'ramping up' the dose. So that may be what he's doing with the initial doses of 800 and 1600.

    I recently tested for HSV1 and HSV2 antibodies and my doctor prescribed 800mg 3times/day right from the start.

    Minkeygirl - how is the acyclovir helping you ?

    I know this is an old thread, but since I just began taking 1g of Valtrex 3x a day after my testing for HSV with Dr. Kaufman, I am curious how @minkeygirl and @globalpilot are doing/did. I've only been on them a week or two.
