Has anybody been in Japan recently and happen to know what this stuff costs there?  I might be passing through in the near future and would love to get some if it was affordable.  The online pharmacy 400+$ deal is not an option for me.  

nope, but i don't know that it will be super easy to get in Japan. You'd need a doctor prescribing it, so best to start googling for a doctor now.

Yet they sell to foreigners by mail order without a script?  How strange.  It's gotta be way cheaper over there I bet.

selling to abroad is a very different regulation than selling locally. you're assumed to take care of prescription and such in your own jurisdiction, and import for personal use is legal in most jurisdictions.

i don't know japanese regulations, but i'd expect it to require prescription. you can try coming with a prescription from a US doctor if you have a good one, and they might honor it. all depends from country to country. (i've done this with other medications, and sometimes they honor the US Rx for non-schedule drugs)

Good to know, thanks.  I will get try to bring a script with me.  Thanks.  Does anyone know what it would cost there with a scrip?

call a pharmacy and ask

if they need a local prescription, still bring a US prescription. it might be easier to find a doctor willing to rewrite a prescription, than to write it in the first place

Approaching my first week of amena valtrex cccombo with denavir as needed.  100mg and 1g respectively. Read multiple human and animal studies around safety and excretion methods vs valtrex, and a newer study around discovering contraindications for amena (warfarin)

I did three weeks of 1g valtrex and 50mg amena and lysine etc but ended up with a full blown break out of balanitis and spot on my lip line along with pain.  Gone in two days but sucked. Dr swabbed dna on penis but redness was gone and came back negative so going to do another , will be hard to swab while on meds anyway as amena reduces shedding significantly to undetectable levels in guinea pigs, I have this study.

 

so far 100mg is superior. Still getting prodrome each day but haven’t woken up with any surprises or broken out yet. 
 

my supplement only breakout frequency was every four or five days plus increased prodrome.  Gf is pleased.

Denavir never did a good job blocking much for me and my derm said this is the norm.

my next step is to do a few other blood checks to make sure I’m not destroying my insides and also add in tens which has been shown to reduce shingles outbreaks to hopefully deactivate as much of the virus as possible. Targeting lower back and thighs for this 

disclaimer is that I’ve had no positive tests from wb igg culture or dna pcr so going off of visual diagnosis with md and fact I never responded to fungal and bacterial treatments over the course of a year .

i don't think that creams do much of anything.

don't think amenamevir interacts with warfarin. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29076107

interesting to know tho that it interacts with ketoconazole. doubt it's a big problem tho.. likely just means it's excreted slower which can be a good thing up to a point

Ah oops I misread that, stand corrected

happy to see the interactions being driven out

The other site is blocking EU countries. I was only able to access it thru the Tor browser.

I think it's the exact same price actually....they give you a discount automatically when you check out of mimaki, 1 pack winds up being $508...bio-japan is 489 + 19 shipping, also 508...

Bio is 440 if you pay using swift wire transfer and order two boxes at once. 450 for one box I think

Yes it does work for me. I think it takes about a week. I'm about to order again...ive only ordered once before and that was last year. I was trying to get around paying 500 a month but it looks like I'm just gonna have to do it if I want any last peace.

Are we even using it right? Maybe daily isn’t the ideal?  For example what about 200mg for three days then a break for four?

your goal is to keep a steady high concentration.. so half dose twice a day (morning evening) would be better than same dose once a day. having a break opens a window for viral replication so not desirable.

I've tried Amenalief.  It worked pretty well for me, I have to say.  I still keep a few pills on hand as an emergency relief.

But I decided that, instead of regularly spending big cash on a temporary fix, I'm going to donate to the FHC fund raiser instead, to support a long term solution to this.

@MikeHerp you do need to disclose that you’ve never actually tested positive for HSV-2. This means conclusions regarding drugs need to be considered in this context.

      Human clinical trials are typically 7 - 10 years; i.e. each phase is 2 - 3 years and there are typically 3 phases. Whether the trials for testing a technology like gene editing will be different, I can't say. Assuming the typical timeline for clinical trials, added on top of a few years for animal studies, we are talking 10 - 15 years. Of course this would assume everything goes as planned.

      So I had sex with guy a little over 6 months ago, we used a condom. He said he tested negative for HSV2 but his friend said he had it and he’s not being honest with me. I took one blood test at 13 weeks, negative. A second blood test this past week also negative. It’s been close to 6.5 months since this and have had no symptoms. 1. How reliable are these blood tests?     Also the guy I’m dating now had a swab tested positive for HSV2. His lesions were atypical looking for herpes with small painless blisters that did not take weeks to heal. His doctor said it would highly unlikely to have a false positive from the swab.  2.Is it possible for me to have to a reliable negative blood test after 5 months of being together? Especially with him now testing positive by swab?

      Clinical trials take 6 to 8 - 12 months. Currently the dr Jerome study is using rodents. After guinea pig he can go to primates. So 2 to 3 years I would say till clinical trials. But alot of this research has been sped up by the HIV cure. It has now been proven virus can be removed from the human body. So if everything goes according to plan  3.5 to 5.5 years.  Worst case late 2025/2026, best case late 2023. By 2030 most viruses will be curable. Viral infection are becoming a public hazard and massive economic burden. China it self is investing alot to fight HIV, hell they are giving out HIV pill for free. Another example HSV is also one of the leading cause for blindness, so image how much money need to be wasted on people going blind. One way or another HSV will be cure. If you're interested look up HIV cured in mice.
