    Can anyone provide (or at least contribute to) a list of CFS doctors that will prescribe Valcyte? I know for a fact that only a select few will actually prescribe a long-term prescription for Valcyte.

    My goal is to find a CFS doctor that:

    1) Prescribes Valcyte for my CFS.
    2) Accepts my health insurance as an In-Network provider.
    3) Operates in or near my area.

    So I guess if I had a list of every doctor (in the US) that prescribes Valcyte, I could cross-reference them with my insurance carrier. Would you be so kind as to provide as many names (and locations) of doctor's that you're aware of? Or, If there is an existing list, could you drop me a link? Thanks!

    I had a Dr prescribe me Valcyte. Contact me if you are in my area. otherwise I think your list could get to be rather large and unmanageable.

    Dr. Black at Hunter-Hopkins has prescribed Valcyte. It was prescribed based on labwork indicating re-activated EBV and current HHV-6 infection. This was in 2008, so I'm not sure if they stlll use it as a current form of treatment.

    Dr. Derek Enlander in NYC will prescribe it after lab test results of viral tithers shows a need but, you would have to travel to NYC.

    You can get in touch with him at: denlander@aol.com
