new tears dispite acyclovir daily..so frustrated please shed some light!!!

Recommended Posts

I have been taking 400mg 2x daily of acyclovir for about a month and a half now. During Jan alone I have gotten 3 tears (I don't get sores, just very small tiny tears, usually one at a time).

I am so frustrated because I am taking the acyclovir which I thought was supposed to suppress it. I think that I have had HSV for years now, but before i didn't know.

I don't know why if I had this for a while, all of a sudden I am getting these tears several times a month WHILE taking acyclovir.

I don't have health insurance, so I cannot afford Valtrex. I am taking garlic supplements and lysine along with the acyclovir but I'm still getting the tears.

It is hard enough being single and trying to date and tell someone that you are HSV positive, but it would be even harder to have to tell my partner 3x a month that I can't have sex due to an outbreak (Not to mention an extra week when I get my period)

I am so frustrated and want to get this under control..any advice would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks

I am so sorry you are still having a problems while you're taking suppressive therapy. It would be a good idea to talk to your doctor and perhaps try some of the other medications available.

Also it is a good idea to check in on your stress level... job, family, etc... stress is a huge component for OBs; your immune system as well.... right now, this is the time of year, when there are several bugs going around, colds, flu, stomach, etc... if your immune system is busy fighting bugs, it will make the hsv 2nd place.

check in on diet and exercise... and maybe try a yoga class...

wish I could offer more....

I hope you feel better soon!

      So, it works as both preventative and cure? when can we expect phase 1 trail start?

"We believe that ∆gD-2 may be more promising than other previous vaccine candidates because it elicits a different type of immune response against HSV-1 and HSV-2 that is more effective in preclinical models at clearing virus and preventing the establishment of latency. In nonclinical models, immunization with ∆gD-2 elicits antibodies that facilitate the killing of infected cells, rapidly clearing the virus and thereby inducing sterilizing immunity," added William Jacobs, PhD, co-Inventor and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine."...

      They may not cure HSV but it looks like they are taking positive steps against HIV : https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/he alth-news/hiv-cure-soon-human-trials-underway-in-china/articleshow/70316379.cms   "Hopefully, the second-phase trial will be completed in the latter half of 2021, and the third-phase clinical trial may start at the end of that year, which will involve thousands of volunteers in a trial to test the effectiveness of the vaccine to protect people against HIV," the researcher added."...
