Hello everyone, after trying all the vitamins and supplements you can think of for several years, last year I learned about Dr. Lerner's protocol for treating elevated Herpes virus titers in CFS patients (I have positive EBV EA and very high HSV-1 titers). So, to keep it short here (long version can be found in my introduction) in January I started Valacyclovir 6 grams per day and it seemed to work quite well until two weeks ago when I developed kidney injury (despite drinking really a lot) - CFR down to 65, serum Creatinine elevated. Urinalysis still OK, though. Thus I had to stop Valacyclovir and thought about switching to Famciclovir, which Dr. Lerner suggests for patients with renal toxicity (there are also a few studies in pubmed who switched Val to Fam successfully after renal injury). The problem is, I was shocked to learn that the price for one day of treatment at 6 grams per day in Germany where I live is €250. (Valacyclovir is about €900 a month) So my question is if there are other users from other European countries who could kindly tell me if it might be cheaper elsewhere in Europe. I thought especially about the UK, because the pound went down a bit in the last few months A German prescription is valid throughout the EU and I have relatives who could travel within Europe and go to a local pharmacy to buy a larger amount for several weeks. With a cheap flight, it would still save me a fortune. Hopefully, I find a way to get Famciclovir, because the antivirals really worked well so far. I look forward to hearing your views!
