I've used it to effectively abort an outbreak immediately. See here:

Pretty convinced of the combo for this. Never had any success like that before ever. Will 100% keep using it.

I've been using it now for 4 months as a daily suppressive in combination with Valtrex, and feel the most normal I've ever felt since contracting HSV.  I'm very pleased so far and will continue taking this antiviral cocktail.

I take half tablet (100mg) of Amenamevir and 500mg of Valtrex with food and grapefruit juice daily.

Does the food and grapefruit juice increase the half life of Amenemevir?

Do you feel any side effects?

Seems like there's two schools of thought on this ... some people are using it daily, probably to lower their shedding and perhaps have a normal dating life. 

My plan is to use it during a break out, which matches the usage model the Japanese are using it for with shingles. I am lucky that I don't get OB as often as some people on here, but when I do get one it is very severe and can last for 6-8 weeks no matter what valtrex dose I've tried. In this sort of case I'm hoping it will work to get rid of that OB

 

How long have you been infected?

no side effects noticed, i don't take it every day tho. grapefruit should work but i haven't been doing that either. main use for me is decreased risk of spreading when i anticipate having sex in the days to follow, and completely stopping an outbreak in its tracks when i take a higher dose

hopefully within a year or two the price drops a bit. but having it PRN is nice especially since its so new.

No side effects for me.  I take it daily since I’m in a relationship with a woman that doesn’t have H.

Good news; I just reordered, and the price dropped from $668 to $542.

that's actually not too bad.  If you are finding an effect at half a tablet, then a month's supply at $542, that comes out to $6504 per year.

That's expensive, and that would price out quite a lot of people.  But if it works well together with Valtrex, then it could be a price worth paying.  

I hope the price continues to drop.

Amenamevir even at this price point is the best thing that has happened in a decade.

It might fully stop outbreaks when taken daily, but I'm instead just using it to stop outbreaks when they happen.  This reduces my recovery time from 10-11 days till fully healed (and no longer visible) to essentially gone like it never happened in 3 days.

I don't expect to pay this high a price forever, but for now it's a great option. approvals in more countries and maybe even pritelivir should happen over the next 2-4 years.

@NorCal_Herpster Given your experience...I was wondering if you think a 50mg dose with a big glass of grapefruit juice would work? I have 1-3 Ob's a month and don't respond to normal AV's...ordering Amenovir after the holidays and just trying to figure out the best way to take it and stretch it as far as I can because of it's expense....Thanks...

@Kurdt01 I’m not the best person to ask.  I responded very well to Valtrex.  I was taking 250mg of Valtrex and not having OBs.  So with my current cocktail of 500mg of Valtrex, 100mg of Amenamevir, and taking it with food and grapefruit juice, I feel totally back to normal.

I like your thinking, but it looks like it’s going to take you some trial and error.  Good luck!

Has anyone who tried Amenamevir from Japan gotten poor results?

I'm thinking of purchasing, but wondering if there are people who risked the money and didn't get the results they were looking for.

I suppose there is no concrete answer you might have to buy and take a loss if it doesn't work.  I don't understand the dosing..is this a weekly thing or take when you have an OB ...Is it for cold sores or everything?

 

While Famvir IMO seems to be the best, I stacked that with Valtrex one time and it got rid of my cold sore in a day....I suspect since this works different than those two drugs it might hit the virus even harder.  

 

Depends on how much you suffer on this is 500 bucks worth it...or would you rather spend that on something else

It's a daily, and it was approved for herpes zoster, not HSV.

 But it seems people are trying it for HSV as well.  It was tested for HSV, and seemed to show results in line with valtrex.  But since the mechanism is different, it could potentially be stacked with valtrex, and animal studies showed an additive or synergistic effect.

However, because it was never approved for daily HSv suppression, anyone trying it should carefully monitor for side effects.

      Do you shop at Amazon.com? Next time you shop, you can also automatically donate a portion of the proceeds to the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.  This Society organizes the symposium on latency of herpes viruses.  It was here that Keith Jerome announced that he had edited almost 20%-30% of latent HSV in mice last year. (http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/neurology/CALS/Documents/2018 CALS abstracts.pdf) You have to go through smile.amazon.com to set up ongoing donations whenever you shop through smile.amazon.com. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society.

      WOW, it's true.  So cool!  Thanks for sharing. In my view, for the time being, we can just help support the Colorado Alphaherpesvirus Latency Society, rather than asking Fred Hutch to set something up through Amazon.   Here is an important message though, you have to go through smile.amazon.com to do the donation.
