    I know that there are some on here who started before I did or right around the same time. Just wanting to know how everyone is. I am on week 3 of my famcyclovir (ms?) and am doing fine. No side effects. Still no more viral sweats. Rib pain has gone away. I don't know if it was from uping dose of prilosec twice a day or if it was the anti-virals. I have felt so good that I am overdoing things which makes me very sleepy so I have been taking some cat naps and now am going to pace myself. Would like to know what others are experiencing. P

    Have you been taking your antiviral for the straight two years? Have you also taken the food allergy tests? My protocol requires taking the anti-viral just for 10-14 weeks and up to 6 months. After that time, as a flare up occurs then you start again. I am taking three large doses a day and keeping my diet very simple. I will need to go for liver test in another month. So far I have not had any side effects.

    Have you tried switching to a different anti-viral or increased the dosage. This is all new to me so I have been wondering how everyone else is proceeding. P

    I have been on anti-virals for 1 1/2 years. I have moved from a 2 to 4 on Dr. Lerner's scale. I have noticed improvement in the heart area. I used to have tachacardyia and a daily low-grade fever. Both have improved. I still have flu-like symptoms and fatigue, but hope it improves, too.
