Hi Monday I met with Dr. Bonilla Stanford had been working with someone else there but she retired. I've been taking 800 mg of acyclovair for a while. can't really say I felt much improvement. have had some breakthrough lesions in the source of my original infection of HSV-1 I. The gum where wisdom tooth was extracted, years ago, causing nerve pain on the right side of my head and my right eye . Dr. Bonilla added famvir very slow starting at 125 mg the first week at night and then increase 125 mg the following week in the morning continue weekly increases until I'm up to 500 mg twice a day. He said come back in three months and will make another change , this feels more progressive to me in the treatment I was getting at Stanford . Before I would go do the check in and they say come back six or nine months.. I didn't feel comfortable changing meds this appointment so far apart at that time . I took the first dose on Monday night and shortly after I took it I felt wide-awake it was rather strange and the same thing Tuesday night I felt wide-awake I had to take extra sleep meds to get to sleep. It's hard for me to believe it could be the Famvir or maybe it's just a coincidence ? anybody have any explanation or experience as to why the Famvir might wake me up I'm not complaining I'm just curious. Thanks.
