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!!

      No it won't go up forever, I know I have been infected for a long time. Some people in here have values in the 50s. it just gives you an idea of where those numbers can go from here. The more antibodies you have the better off you are and at least you know your immune system is building those antibodies. I hope you do really well!

      The number doesn’t matter very much in terms of your experience with herpes. Your immune system has 80 elements that address HSV and your experience is related to the combined effort of these 80 elements. I’d suggest this partner is very probably infected and has been for a while.

      Obviously zero percent transmission rates can't be assured with the combination of Pritevilir and Valtrex. But I think it's safe to assume based on what we know that their effects will be cumulative and they'll work better together than they would separately, since they're halting viral replication by different methods. Pritelivir inhibits the enzyme helicase, where Valtrex inhibits the enzyme polymerase. If it were the case, for example, that Pritelivir were also going after polymerase and did a better job of halting it than Valtrex, then we would just take Pritelivir by itself with no more need for Valtrex. But that's not the case. Since the approaches of halting replication are different, a "cocktail" of the two drugs is certain to be more effective than taking just one or the other.  More on how Valtrex and Pritelivir work here: https://www.acsh.org/news/2018/06/12/herpes-vaccines-dont-work-what-about-drugs-pritelivir-page-aids-playbook-13074

      lyme disease can be sexually transmitted, keep us posted about it hope your tests are negative

      Yeah I'm pretty sure it's from him but I don't know why he would lie about being negative since we were still together and I said I was already positive. Maybe he was infected right before we met? Is higher the number better? How do the antibodies work over time? Will it continually go up forever?
