Valtrex is very expensive, there is a generic for it now however. I am not sure of the generic cost.

I was on Valtrex and other anti virals for 1 year after treating for Lyme and co's for 2 years.

Anti viral treatment made a HUGE difference for me!

thank you soooo much
do you remember the name (s) of the other anti virals?
My son has yet to have a lyme literate physician but its possible this regular dr i got him into might help him as long as it does not LOOK like he is treating lyme, I would think it would look like he is treating bad mono and I buy the abx over the net. Its so weird right when he got sick the word valtrex popped into my mind, crazy serendipidty? If any names of other antivirals that helped you pop into your head I'l take them :) hope u have a good day! lisa

Oh and plus I could use some help, I hope the generic isn't too expensive but I want to try it for me too, again they can use the high EBV titers to justify it. this is good news!!!

I used Acyclovir (worked the best for me) as far as improvement

Famavir (sp)

Valacyte and Valtrex

Acyclovir and Famavir (sp) were not real expensive if I recall. I was on high doses of both.

l-Lysine works good too. It's not just an old wives tale. I'm having a brain fart on the dose though. Get a good quality one. Not just OTC junk. You can take lots, but take it between meals twice a day.

I really don't think any one medication or supplement is going to be noticeably helpful by itself on fatigue. There's so many things with LD that causes it.

Acyclovir at Costco or Walmart should be the cheapest.

much luck
