ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    I have always had low white blood cells, about 3.1. I was given Valcyte about 2 years ago and did not take it because of my low white blood cell count. Does Famvir lower WBC? Thanks

    I think it has the potential to do so but it does not always.

    It didn't lower mine, but mine are not low either to begin with...

    I think you just have to try and get regular labs.

    My WBC count is always low. I have taken Famvir for over a year and it hasn't made the WBC count any worse.
