    I started with Famvir, and it worked very well. I had terrible die off, but once I got through it, I was great. Later, I had to add Valtrex to it because I started to backslide a little, so I took a half dose of each. All I had was EBV.

    I took Valtrex 4g/daily or 3 months and did not see improvement. Dr. Lerner just switched me to Famvir (same dose) because I was having stomach issues and Valtrex was one of the suspects. I've only taken Famvir for 4 days so I can't tell anything yet.

    I'll likely be adding Valcyte soon, so I won't be able to separate the Famvir effects from the Valcyte effects...

    according to dr. lerner and my own research, both drugs have the same affect on EBV.

    good luck
