My teenager has a first appt with Dr. Lerner soon. She has a high EBV titre, is negative for CMV, and is as yet untested for HHV6. We expect she will be prescribed Valtrex and possibly Valcyte. She is currently an engineering student and we are concerned about ability to function during the early months of treatment. [BTW, I'll be seeing him soon, too, so we'll likely be going through treatment together (assuming we can afford it).] Will those of you who have been through treatment with Dr. Lerner share your thoughts about your first 4 months of treatment and what you think about going to college while under treatment? My uncle was taking Valtrex and Valcyte for 5 years under Dr. Lerner's care. He had no side effects and started feeling better within the first 3 months. He's been in complete remission for a couple of years now. I'd love to think our experience will be similar to his, but suspect life is not that easy. Thanks!
