    valtrex for ebv, hsv1 and 2
    valcyte for hhv6, cmv and ebv
    famvir shingles/chickenpox, hsv1 and 2. But a few on this board have used it successfully with ebv, cmv and hhv6. It was mentioned that famvir is only indicated for shingles, hsv1 and 2 as it was easier and quicker to get it to market, but the makers know its effective for alot more but it would be to hard to get it approved for other viruses.

    Also if people are worried about toxic effects of valcyte or have liver issues, then famvir is recommended above valcyte. Generally valcyte us said to be stronger then famvir against cmv, hhv6

    acyclovir is similar to valtrex but valtrex gets higher blood levels of the drug then acyclovir can.

    dosages seem to vary alot, many have used alot lower doses then dr lerner prescribes and had good success with it and its also a long term treatment, maybe a few years, takes a few months to see results and feel some improvement. Best to do a 6 month trial to judge.

    cheers!!!

    Thanks for your reply Hepesreal. But are you saying these are what you have taken for these infections, or that these are the most common reccomended treatments for these infections?

    Im interested in both, but mainly the former, i.e. what infections people have had and what drugs they have taken, and ultimately the result.

    Whats generally used in cfs.

    I didnt get anything from valtrex but famvir is what has helped me, i have ebv/cmv. lowered my high lymphocyte subsets and improved symptoms.

    cheers!!
