    Hi all, im improving on antivirals but wanting to know if others have been in the same boat and sustained this improvement with immune modulators like immunovir or cycloferon, as these have direct antiviral properties and help strengthen NK cell function which is at the hall mark of our illness.

    I am looking into this for financial reasons as immune modulators seem to be alot cheaper then antivirals and would possibly drop antiviral therapy for immune modulators if this is the case.

    cheers!!!

    I had a NK test before taking immune modulators but no test afterwards (could not afford to pay). I took imunovir and had an improvement in viral type symptoms (sore throat, glands etc). The effects wore off if I stopped. The same with the antiviral Valtrex if I run out. I pulsed Imunovir as per the Dr Cheney protocol.
