Bedridden with HHV6, starting Valcyte, will I get weaker?

  1. Hello! This question is for those who have experience with Valcyte. I am extremely weak and have been bedridden since Dec 22. It's now Feb 10. I will be starting Valcyte in a couple weeks. I have rea reports that Valcyte can make you weaker. I can't afford to get much weaker, I'm afraid that could be dangerous. Only medications keep my blood pressure at a reasonable level and I'm so weak I have trouble sitting up. Will Valcyte make me worse before I get better? Is it safe to get weaker in this condition?
  2. Thank you both for your responses. I may try the olive leaf extract, I keep hearing good things about it. Echinacea helps me a little bit, but I think you can only take it for so long safely. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the Valcyte. Thank you again.
