My Amenalief Experience

Recommended Posts

Kurdt01

Amenalief 1/8/19-1/21/19

 

It’s works, it’s not perfect but it works. I took it for 2 weeks daily, usually just 1 -100mg tab (200mg split in two with a pill splitter)…some days I felt great, some days I could feel burning which could last from several minutes to several hours….any physical sensation at site was completely ameliorated…no itching/pinching/feeling of something just below surface…all gone…

 

This is something I would def keep on hand and experiment with dosage…No real side effects other than maybe a little dry skin…but it’s also winter so it could be that. There is also the potential that it lowers viral load over time too, so who knows....taken long enough it could have some very lasting effects.

 

Overall....if you're having a hard time with HSV and can swing it I would def order a box and see how it goes....just knowing something exists and is available that works could give you great peace of mind.

I can agree with you, I started with this about 2 months ago, OB free... 100mg a day just like you. My skin start to heal in a proper way. I plan to cut my intake of Amenalief to 200mg a week, in a month to see if the effect is the same (half a pill twice a week.) It is  very costly, so if that works it will be less of a financial burden.

The only side effect I had was that I was getting moody and emotional some times without any reason, kind of like the same way you feel when you stop smoking, if you know what I mean. But that feeling is not constant only 2-3 times a week. I don't know for sure if that comes from the medicine, but I think so. But it is not a biggie.

I also notice that all my tingling feeling on my skin was gone after the first month, so that means that the shredding is lower? Maybe I can start dating again soon without the feeling that I might give this virus to someone just by touching them.

Bad news....I was very confident about this. So I tried eating chocolate and ice cream yesterday. This was my super trigger regarding OB's before. So I have not eaten it in almost a year. I eat quite a lot of chocolate, probably 200 grams, and a few scoops of ice cream. Today I woke up with 2 blisters on my left butt and one on the right. very painful. So my conclusion is that this is the best remedy I have ever tried, but it is not perfect. Dam

Why isn’t this available in the US yet ?

Good question.  Why isnt ANYTHING new available in the US is another popular question.  All the antivirals available here r old, and they dont work for a lot of us.  It all comes down to money/funding.  I remember herpes first coming out in the news...not sure exactly when but before 1977.  Thats a long stretch of time with little progress.  U can donate to herpes research, sign petitions, spend $500/mo. on medicine from Japan.  Those r the choices here in the US.  As a group, u have to make noise, or u get overlooked.

Thanks to all sharing on this thread.  I just started taking 1/2 per day.  I have an upcoming event where ive got to have some help.  I have been taking high doses of vitamin C with no BO's since 1/5 (thats very good for me), but thats something u have to keep at all day long, and i know I'll be distracted.  So will do amenalief for now and report back after a month.

  I would like to add and this is purely antecdotal at this point, I do believe that you could stretch out a pack of amenalief to last potentialy for two months… So if that helps anyone you could look at it is 250 a month versus 500 a month… And eventually who knows this could lower viral load over time where you might not even need to take it for several months or at least several weeks…I still have some of my first pack left and I’m going on three weeks of outbreak and basically symptom free of… Next pack I’ll try five days on 5 to 10 days off and just see how long it goes… So far I haven’t taken it for about a week and I’m still symptom-free. No one said this is perfect but it’s about as close as were going to get for the for seeable future… And it’s definitely worth taking.

Anyone tried this just for episodic therapy at first sign maybe take 100mg for 3 straight days or something and see if that works and brings down how often they come or more for suppression at regular intervals?

This is probably the last time I’ll visit this thread… My bottom line is this:  if you have things that work for you don’t waste your money on this, if you don’t have a hard time with it overall don’t waste your money… This is for those people for which nothing works;  like I said in the original post it helps, it’s not miraculous but it helps if you have 1 million questions and want to know to the finest agree what it does then just order it… We wanted something for years and  it’s finally here… If you need it order it. Or continue wasting money on supplements and diet and whatever else the Internet coughs up as a cure every other day.

I hope u will keep us advised of your experimenting with the lowest dose possible to take without breakout.  The "at first sign" is not going to work for me.  My first sign is a day of nasty depression.  I dont usually grasp that its a sign until too late, and the next day is a lesion and fatigue that puts me in bed.  I have to ward it off entirely.  Vitamin C in large doses (12 g/day) has been working for me too, so my plan now is to combine the two.  Like take vitamin C in lower doses while Im on amenalief, and when I go off it, bump up the vitamin C.  Since nobody can read Japanese, we have no idea what side effects to look for.  There r sometimes side effects that dont give u symptoms, but show up in a CBC for example (as they did for me with valtrex).  So there r other reasons besides thriftiness to take as little of this drug as u can manage.

That’s true and I wouldn’t take it daily anyway… Because just like with supplements I think somehow this virus learns a workaround… So I think you’re even better off taking the sporadically… If you have a hard time and it’s unpredictable when you all get out breaks I would experiment taking it for 5 to 10 days and then taking a break to see how long it lasts… If you know you get one out make a mother to outbreaks of lunch you could probably find a way to at least break that cycle which I think is very important…Regarding side effects though could be anywhere is there whatever toll constant out brakes are taking on your body?

One Last thing no one can keep anyone else advised of a possible doseage… You need to try it for yourself… Everything affects all of us differently… Some of those vaccines were miraculous for some and made things worse for others… You just have to try it…I would like to see people commenting on this thread that are taking it so it’s a group of us comparing notes rather than some people taking on the burden and then reporting to others when we find something that works and/or is safe…

Hi Kurdt01,

Its been 2 months I am taking Amenalief on daily basis.I tried taking half a pill a day and it doesnt work out like the whole pill.All my disturbances from HSV1&2 vanished and I am planning to continue since Valtrex no longer sorts out.If Amenalief didint work I was planning to suicide since I no longer can deal with this virus.I really dont care about the long tern effects for using Amenalief since this is my only option left until something better comes to the market for us.I hope scientists come with a potencial cure soon.

I realize that we will all have to experiment to arrive at our individual dosage.  Over the course of a lifetime of taking certain meds from time to time, i know what i can tolerate and what t i cant.  So the dose recommended is just a recommendation, even tho the dr often hands it down like Moses with his tablet.  I am an older woman with a weakened immune system, otherwise fit.  Should i take the same dose as a  young 200# guy?  It seems unlikely.  But its so good to read other people's experiences...helps u work out what u want to do.

So  far the the minimum effective dose seems to be 100mg daily...,200mg daily for near total suppression.

Hi Lulu,

I am 43 years old will turn 44 in March.I also have a weak immune like yours.The only side effect of taking 200 mg a day is that I get an upset stomach.Other than that everything is ok.If half a pill works fine for you than I would only recommend of course to take half a pill a day if it suppresses

I haven’t taken it for almost a week and yesterday I started to feel a little burning and irritation at skin so I took a 200 mg pill and within hours all the symptoms went away and now I feel really good again.

I think u r the only one who has reported any side effects, so that is interesting.  Now that u r able to keep your HSV symptoms under control, life will get better. Taking care of yourself should help your immunity and help your outlook too.  You r young to be having immunity issues.

Hi. What side effects did you have with valtrex?

      I would not be the first one, plenty of others here on the forum who get recurrent OBs despite heavy doses of antivirals. The blisters appear exactly in/around the spot where I had my first OB 4 years ago, plus all the symptoms I have are those commonly described as HSV-2 symptoms. In my opinion, it's a clear case.  But your suggestion is definitely an option that should not be ruled out. I'll wait until I get a bad enough OB again so I can go get another swab test. The outbreak needs to be bad enough to be able to break the blisters to get the liquid from inside right? I recall hearing something like this when I got tested years ago. The doctor used a swab that had tiny needles on it that would pop the blisters open. Do you know if this is right, i.e. you will not get a positive swab just from a mild OB / redness?

      90% elimination of the latent virus in thr ganglia probably will be a functional cure. Sure the small remaining amount can reactivate, but thete is a viral load threshhold for transmission. More than likely that won't be enough to cause transmission, or enough shedding for transmission. Damage enough of the latent virus and we are good to go. There is already a Crispr trial on humans going on right now https://newatlas.com/crispr-trial-underway-vertex-gene-therapy/58643/ So we are just waiting on Keith Jerome's lab and Excision Biotherapeutics to begin their trials. I've beem following Crispr for years now, and it keeps gettimg more accurate. I believe researchers at Duke have recently made a big breakthrough on accuracy, by changing the level of regulation instead of cutting DNA. I wonder if these labs collaborate with others such as Jerome's?

      No need to be tired at all, I'm sorry of you cannot accept the facts surrounding testing, but here they are. Your note is full of inaccuracies so let's iron those out. I don't need you to believe anything, I am just putting the facts out there. Here's a few studies: https://jcm.asm.org/content/37/5/1632 Here we have 29 patients with recent HSV-2 infection... 100% turned positive, 0% false negatives. https://jcm.asm.org/content/36/3/845/figures-only Here we have over 1,000 positive samples from people who have swabbed positive and compared to three different blood tests - over 95% accurate. https://jcm.asm.org/content/26/4/662?ijkey=9ebe349f98ed94f019ed788604c8fa19864a2c7e&keytype2=tf_ipsecsha Here we have 76 people who swabbed positive, the Westernblot detected 99% and an immunoblot 96%. Can you elaborate what is vague about these items of research. I'm sure now you'll want to review the references to these papers where you'll find even more. Some of them are in easy text for the beginner. So you stand corrected, it is in fact your comments that are spreading misinformation. That is not tolerated on this website. Also what nonsense that people do not get lesions to swab upon infection? Where did you read that? Hello Dolly? I'm afraid it is back to the books for you to do some more research before having such a rambunctious spew like above. STOP IT - we are all tired of your unsubstantiated drivel. This is 2019 we want something tangible, something real, something sound and wholesome and not drooling rants equal of the park bench antics of the drunks at 2am Sunday morning! I will NEVER stop because no matter how immature, how bombastic, how fantastic, how inaccurate, how frivolous, how false the spew that ends up on this website - the TRUTH will always be the light, the love, the guidance, the deliverance and the justice... no matter how many capitalised swear words are thrown!

      I took an IgG blood test 6 months after the episode. HSV-2 was negative (less than .91) and HSV-1 was high at 3.18
    • RainyDay2
      My comment was about THE BLOOD TEST!  You’re 95-100% accuracy for it?  Garbage.  Pure garbage.  You might as well have pulled that number out of your ass. Google search HIV accuracy... almost every medical site will tell you 4th generation HIV testing is as close to 99.9% percent you can possibly get after a certain period of elapsed time.  They will pretty much GUARANTEE you that you are indeed negative if you have a negative test. That defined certainty of accuracy WILL NOT AND CAN NOT be found for HSV blood tests.  You get vague descriptions of it’s accuracy from almost every site you visit.  NO CERTAINTIES.  Thousands of us on these forums KNOW the test isn’t accurate. When your score is between 1.1 and 3.5, this could be a false positive.  Certain sites list almost 1 in 2 tests can be false positives.  50 fucking percent!! And you want me to believe the test is 95-100% accurate? How come so many sites also seem to dance around the possibility of false negatives?   All that isn’t necessary in HIV testing.  Because if YOU DO get a low positive, the confirmatory HIV test checks for the actual VIRUS in your system.   And there are almost NO FALSE NEGATIVES.    NO HSV BLOOD TEST CAN DO THAT! Not even the Western Blot.  At the end of the day, it’s just a more detailed look at antibodies.  And many sites will tell you a “small” number of people may never develop. How small are we talking???? That can be any number.   Trash. And again, a large margin of people with herpes DO NOT GET LESIONS to be swabbed.  Google tells you that.  If majority of herpes infected have nothing to swab,  well that pretty much makes PCRs and cultures worthless for the most part doesn’t it?  If there is nothing to swab after a year, in your words, you are clear of herpes. BULLSHIT! So Wilso, just stop it.  You have never done scientific testing in a lab yourself on herpes. You are not a doctor.  You are constantly telling people false information.  Assuring them of promises you have no authority to make.  I’ve seen you do it time and time again.  Do you have regrets???????????  Im tired of your lies.
