resistant to medication

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just found out about this forum. It gives me a little hope again.

Here's my story.

I first had the genital herpes infection 4 years ago.

I had my first relapse after 2 years.

Since then it has been constant.

I've been in hospital for a few months because the doctors don't know what else they can do.

I'm out of hospital but take daily 2 times 800mg Aciclovir. Besides I take supplements of vitamins, vitamin C and lysine. I do constantly have little cuts but not as severe as when I was in hospital.

I'm getting desperate as in my country (in Western Europe) they can't help me more than this.

I'm single but 'd love to have a family someday and I'm desperate to find a solution, that's why I am looking for a specialist - anywhere in the world - who can help me with my situation. Where can I find such a doctor?

Thank you for your help.

thx

Thank you.

I'm longing for the first day without any cuts and not feeling tired.

I'm longing for being able to date again ànd having sexual activity with that.

I'm just desperate after 2 years.

I can take one more heavier medication, that's Valaciclovir, but if I do that and I get resistent, there is no solution anymore.

Please let me know if there is any specialist in the world about this virus.

You should definitely try Valtrex. You may need a heavy daily dose of 1000mg. I developed resistance to acyclovir as well. Now, Im on Valtrex and it has worked for almost a year, but I'm developing resistance again. I will have to go back to old school medicine if I continue to develop resistance. I know your pain. I have had a continuous outbreak for over two years. Miserable.... I never slept around and always used protection besides with my three long term partners and I still ended up with this contagious crap. This virus refuses to give up. There is a drug called AIC316 that has had successful phase II clinical trials and it nearly eliminates all outbreaks and drastically reduces the risk of transmission. There has been no evidence of drug resistance in clinical trials so far. The problem is getting it to market sooner than later. Go to the herpes research forum and you will find plenty of discussions about the medication. This is the next best treatment before a cure if you know what I mean. Hope this helps you see a brighter future.

Valtrex is the commercial name of valaciclovir.

I'm going to start on that one now.

      It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

      I found the love of my life ( my wife) after I contracted herpes. She is totally supportive and understanding. Never give up hope! After my first outbreak and diagnosis I was a WRECK! Depression like you wouldnt belive, but in time you will find its more of an inconvenience than anything. My best advice is to be very selective about who you want to date and tell your secret too. There is still a stigma about herpes and gossip can damage your self esteem.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.
