    I read about all this treatments and I wonder how do you compare this two.
    Just wondering because I took famvir for a couple of months and didn't do anything to the virus' and now I'm on valtrex 3 grams a day.

    My doctor says that Famvir and Valcyte seem basically the same in terms of what they kill (including HHV-6).

    He doesn't think Valtrex and Famvir are much different from one another.

    Valcyte is significantly more potent than either of the other drugs (in terms of ability to kill viruses and potential side effects), however.

    It may well be that Famvir or Valtrex is helping and that you just don't know it yet.

    Please read the thread called "Have You Ever Heard of CFS Patients Getting Truly Well?" and the experience of my friend's mother.

    I wonder how long it takes to work when you are on AV's I feel that your body can't be on them for too long without affecting other organs, what do you think?
