I also do hope they would approve Amenolief as the new medication for HSV2 (^^)/ Considering the market of HSV2, Astelas will apply for the sales/product permission for FDA. In case of live vaccine, it may take another decade to be approved by FDA, but the drug has completed Phase 3 in the US, I personally believe the drug will be approved quickly (^^)

It may be quite difficult for a foreign traveler to buy a newly-approved drug WITHOUT doctor's prescription... Even for Japanese, doctor's prescription is necessary for the new drugs. Basically, a prescription issued in a foreign country will not be accepted in any pharmacy. Considering the English literacy of the Japanese pharmacists, only a few of them will be capable of reading it, though... Anyways, just wait and see until the result of the meeting comes out. Without the formal approval, we cannot get the drug for any means.

Of course I would see a Japanese doctor. I would go there.

That would make sense as aciclovir treats both shingles and HSV but in different doses

Lucy

I have been saying this for some time but there are some including Dr Halford who say that shingles vaccine gives no relief to HSV sufferers. 

Just search my posts, i have been saying since i got my shot it helps me alot. Others dont believe it. 

Guys, i had the Zostavax Shingles vaccine 1 plus year ago and i have had considerable relief from my symptoms of HSV 2. My outbreaks reduced in severity and frequency, nerve pain disappeared, itching disappeared,

My doctor is so impressed with the results for using it for HSV he regularly gives to anyone, even under 50.

IT MAKES SENSE. Varicella vaccine (Chicken pox) developed in Japan, first used in Japan, Zostavax is exactly the same as chicken pox vaccine but 14 times stronger. 

Zostavax really helped me, and i cant wait for this shingles vaccine to be available, im sure it will help HSV 1 and 2 also.

Has Astellas stated they will apply in the US? Or is that speculation?

It should work for both viruses. similar to valtrex but far more superior. We will have to wait and see. This is a good product and I've actually considered moving my family to Japan, haha.

I really hope you're right, I hope this works for HSV 2...I cannot handle any more disappointments. :(

Since I'm just an ordinary guy without any relation with medical professionals, I have no ideas about this... However, what I have experienced so far as a general Japanese is that we need the direct medical inspection of a doctor and his/her prescription to buy a newly-approved drug. This is also true when we ask the pharmacy to refill the same drug; we do need to see the doctor and ask the doctor to issue a prescription. Therefore, it will be fairly difficult to ask a doctor or a pharmacy to ship the drug to you in a foreign country...

This is just my personal speculation ..., or my personal wish... I believe neither of Maruho or Astelas has not yet applied for the sales/production permission in the US.

Sure, but as you can see on Halford's petition, it doesn't really work... thousands suffer and just over 1500 signatures :-( it's hard to get it to people even through H websites... They usually deleted it when I posted it (theravax petition) and some denied my access. The only one helpful is this one - HC. You would think they (other H websites) wanna help us, but they just care about money :-( what I do now, I promote HC on different forums, so people can come here and see the research. Sorry for long story... petition would be great if we can get to many people.

Yep. I am interested in knowing, if I could see a doctor in Japan and get a prescription, how much of the medication I would be allowed to take home.

Always wanted to go to Japan anyway.

I don't think so...I don't know if it's even for HSV at all? Maybe I misread.

This is the real deal. F*"# it I will take pills daily or once a week in order to guarantee non transmission to loved ones. I have no problems with that.

I think everybody on HC is concentrating on Halford's vaccine but Im skeptical on it.  But as mentioned ^^^, read the links and it wouldn't hurt reading the threads as well.

      @swagdaddy hey. First / second outbreak was horrendous. Had all of the above and was wmotionally distraught. The pain is the worst in the start and i had nerve pain fatigue , flu symptoms then i got flu and was sick for over two months. But then it passed. The anti virals help and definitely make sure u sleep and destress. How r u feeling ?

      Also looks like my first outbreak... get tested

      I’m afraid to give it to someone even if we wear condoms. A boyfriend of mine gave it to me... never told me he had it. Relationship only lasted a few months after that. It’s been almost 3 years now.

      Little update, I've upped the dose of Zinc to 100mg/days on rest days and 160mg/day for workout days. I also just came to Europe for holidays and I'm freezing in this weather (My body is used to tropical Thailand weather). The cold weather seems to strenghten my immunity somehow, as the OB is clearing off. I have experienced the same in the past - always on my trips to cold countries it seems to get better.  I wonder if hot weather could cause this? I do spend most of my time indoors with AC at 25 degrees celcius in Thailand though and always protect myself from the sun.
