Can you share what experiences are in the group you are in for folks that take these meds?I've been on TDF for a couple of months, substituting it for the valganciclovir I was on previously. No side effects .
The info I've seen says TAF is mist effective against EBV, with TDF second, then ganciclovir (valganciclovir was not tested). All were effective with the 2 tenofovirs more effective.
I don't know what other people's experiences are, unfortunately.Can you share what experiences are in the group you are in for folks that take these meds?
I’m wondering… are TAF / TDF effective against only replicating / lytic EBV or do we think they are effective against the “smouldering” viral reservoirs?
When you say you had been on valtrex for 9 months, did you mean the Valtrex had given you no benefit?I've been on Tenofovir (Truveda since it was easiest to get) and overall had a positive experience with it. No side effects and it quickly cleared up some very intense cold symptoms I was having. I was most likely having an episode of EBV reactivation, which for me usually lasts 2 weeks or more. My throat was sore, swollen tonsils, extreme daytime sleepiness & what felt like liver inflammation. I was lucky enough to get the truveda within a day and my symptoms cleared up in 3-4 days.
I kept taking the antiviral for 3-4 months to see if I would get any other benefits from it. It did give me more energy than I had before.
Prior to this experience I had been on Valtrex for 9 months.
