Acyclovir

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am fairly new too this. I have been reading thru all of the posts and they are very informing. I have had herpes for awhile but I think I was in denial or too embarassed to tell my doctor. I hardly ever got outbreaks, but lately I was having them all of the time and pretty bad. My doctor put me on acyclovir 400 mg. once a day but it did not seem too help so now I am taking it twice a day. It seems too be better. My question is I also went out and got lysine. I have been taking it 3 times a day. Is this right even if I am on the suppressive therapy? I have too admit I am having more energy. That is a good thing if it is because of the vitamin. I also noticed though that I have not been hungry hardly at all. I don't feel sick just not hungry. It seems crazy but I am wondering if anyone else noticed this? I think I am just over thinking everything. :)

I am also curious to know if Lysine affects anti-virals like Valtrex. Both okay or should it be one or the other?

My doc put me on acyclovir when I was first diagnosed and my appitite was Gone-Zip-Nadda after taking it.

L-lysine is an enzyme...I'm not sure if that would boost your energy.. It seems more likely that your virus isn't as active right now and that is what is bringing your energy back. hmm

It would be good info for you to read up on L-lysine and arginine. You'll find links for that to the right of the forum page. ;)

Yah, I have read all of it. It kind of confuses me though. I have always ate anything I wanted and never really had bad ob's until now.

Also, I read some where it says too stay away from nuts and then read somewhere else that you should eat them. So many of the foods listed are in everything almost. Like wheat bread?? I am not suppose too eat sandwiches? Very confusing??

Well, maybe on the upside of all of this I can lose those last 10 pounds!!

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
