Hi gang; I just typed a real long update and deleted it by mistake so I’ll try to remember what I wrote. I have been delaying posting an update in case I would jinx my miraculous progress but I think it’s safe to say that VALCYTE IS WORKING!!!!! RECAP: Week 1-6 no side-effects, no...

Hey gang, just a quick update. I have been completely bed ridden and not doing well at all for 6 weeks. Not seeing an end in site. I'm leaving for vacation on Sat morning. Wish me luck because I have no idea how I'm going to pull that off. I am still hoping for a miracle.

Hello Gang; I can't believe I've already been on Valcyte for one month. I am now down to 900 mg once daily (with meal) and still having no problems. Sometimes I wonder if the pharmacist messed up and gave me suger pills because I'm tolerating this way better than I ever dreamed of...
