And how is that doing for you? How long have you been taking those?
Honestly the only ones that I feel do anything are the lysine (I’ve been taking it for years to prevent cold sores) and the valtrex, which limits the flu-like symptoms of PEM. But my doc wants me to stay on the other two for antiviral properties, I may not feel anything but theoretically I’d be more susceptible to infection and PEM without them. It’s hard to know.
