No experience with these anti virals, but considered them years ago when started on the Fibro journey, EBV was pretty high....but the cost FOR ME was FOR ME, Olive Leaf Extract has kept my EBV under control.

One doc I saw along the way, said SO MANY live with EBV and live well.
OA from age 18 to late 70's....complications from hip replacement in 2010...such a terrible outcome.
Fibro dx in 1999

All all the other "stuff" most deal with....I take 95% supplements for my health care...
Grape Seed Extract and or Pycnogenol have been lifechanging for me, 20 yrs on them soon.

Love the SOM and AA Principles....

I was on Valtrex for one year but it didn't work. Nothing changed.

Actually the healthiest I have been since my diagnosis was when I was on valtrex for my ebv and Cyto. But my doc would only let me use it for a few months. My health has dropped since then (a year ago). I just had lab work showing that ebv was active recently (oh god, it was terrible), and I'm hoping my doc will put me on it again.

So I give it two thumbs up! Oh and I found I could break them in half and had the same coverage but less toxicity.

There are 33 reviews of it here, on the "treatment reviews" side of the site: /

There may also be some forum discussions of it at AnyTreatment if you want to use the search box. The site will also pull up threads/reviews that refer to it as valacyclovir.
Probably with the help of his partner, a virologist, Dr. Pridgen included celebrex in their fibro trials of valtrex plus another med. I believe they found celebrex + Valtrex to be the best combo. I most probably read that at There are prolly reviews of celebrex at, also. The site hopes to be a yelp type of patient resource for finding reviews of alternative, supplement, and prescription treatments.
