International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Famciclovir 250mg 2X a day

    (8-22-11) Day 1 and Day 2 no noticeable difference.

    Day 3: more achiness in my muscles; probably just a coincidence.

    I will update this thread once every week. Stay tuned....




    What sub-set am I?
    fibromyalgia pains
    temperature dysregulation
    hypersomnia

    Thanks for the report.
    keep us updated.
    I'm considering starting famvir myself.
    Would also be nice if you gave us some background info. on your CFS history.

    Had to cut this drug short because my insurance changed. :(
    2 weeks on famvir was not enough time to determine its effectiveness.
    Should be back on it in 1 month, maybe sooner if one of my family members chips in. Will keep this thread updated though when I have news.

    SirArthur, three and a half years ago I was under alot of stress from work and school, developed a bad flu, visited the E.R (for which, after 3hrs of waiting gave me a script for tamiflu and sent me home with papers that simply stated I had a flu as well as the dosing of the medication.) I think my cfs was the result from a combination of stress, genetics, the flu, and not allowing myself enough time to recover before returning to my busy lifestyle.

    I think Famvir is worthwhile, especially since it doesnt have near the toxicity of Valcyte.
