Antivirals : Generics vs Brand


Senior Member
I’ve been on Valcyte for about 6 weeks now and really struggling with it )increased fatigue, much worse dizziness, worse congnition).

I recall reading a thread awhile back about someone who switched from generic to brand antivirals and it made all the difference for her. Before I throw in the towel, I thought I might try that. Anyone remember that thread or who posted it? I’ve searched a few times ans am coming up empty.

happy weekend y’all.
