Hi All, My name's Mike, 26, and I've had CFS for 8 years, and am now about 50% on Dr David Bell's Disability Scale (on my good weeks at least, and from a 10 originally). I've only recently discovered that people with CFS can potentially be treated with anti-virals, and I have gotten some great hope from Dr Lerner's study with EBV subset using Valtrex. My only known co-infection is EBV, so it seems that I might be a good candidate for Valtrex. Has anyone here had any personal experience with Valtrex in terms of success rate and/or side-effects? Is it considered to be one of the most successful anti-virals (at least for EBV subset), as Dr Lerner's study suggests? Is this study and/or Lerner considered to be reputable? Any responses would be appreciated. Thank you! Mike.
