    So can we do a calculation of how many people did the drug and did not have to go back on the drug with positive covid-19 people. This is a great idea..

    Can we do a poll? It would be great to know some basic measures including:
    A) # of Covid positive that took acyclovir alone and saw improvement
    B) # of Covid positive that took acyclovir alone and saw no improvement

    C) # of Covid positive that are ‘Confirmed by test’
    D) # of Covid positive that are ‘Assumed (no test result)’

    E) # of Covid positive that took acyclovir in before symptoms
    F) # of Covid positive that took acyclovir after symptoms

    I would be real curious to the % for :
    (# Covid Positive took acyclovir alone and saw improvement) / (# Covid Positive)

    If the ratio is > 50% then there should be more investigations imho and I would hope it would warrant some type of further examination & studies.

    Like how many people who take daily maintenance dosage of acyclovir are asymptomatic?
    People who take acyclovir as needed, how many saw symptoms reduced after taking their acyclovir dose?

    There should be some study of the HSV1 and HSV2 populations in relation to Covid, I have not heard of any except anecdotal single cases like this, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7368659/

    There may be others?

    Starting 8/6 we were confirmed to be Covid positive, we contracted the illness on approx. 8/1. Our current symptoms have ranged from slight fever, clogged sinus and sore throat.
    Beginning 8/7 we will being taking our acyclovir, as the sinus pressure and headaches associated with Covid are very simoilair to an HSV2 break out. If we dodnt know we had Cvod we would assume this was either HSV2 or a middle ear infections.

    This is our daily treatment log :
    Day 1 of treatment:
    – Date: 8/7/2020
    – Meds
    o Acyclovir : 200 mg : 2X per day

    Hello,
    Recent Covid positive & HSV1&2 positive here. I am updating my log to document my experience with Covid and how I have felt each day as well as the meds/supplements I am taking. Please see below for Day 2-5. In short if you have HSV2, take that Acyclovir !! It reduces the symptoms for me, especially that damn sore throat!!!

    Day 2 of treatment:
    – Date: 8/8/2020
    – Meds
    o Acyclovir : 300 mg (100mg BEFORE Bed)
    o ZPack: 200 mg (100mg BEFORE Bed)

    – Supplements: (taken daily)
    o 4000 mg Vitamin D + 5000 mg Vit C + 200mg Zinc

    o Day #7 of illness
    o Awoke with NO Sore throat, tired, body aches, cough, feels like head cold, ear ache
    o Taking Acyclovir BEFORE bed certainly helps to awake with less symptoms!
    o Symptoms are worse for me in the AM, before bed and AFTER I eat red meat. Hoping to reduce these in the coming days
    Day 4:
    – Date: 8/10/2020
    – Meds
    o Acyclovir : 200 mg (again 1 before bed)
    o ZPack: 200 mg (again 1 before bed)

    – Comments
    o Day #8 of illness
    o Awoke with stuffy nose, tired all day, body aches, slight cough, feels like it has moved to my chest
    o I ate red meat on Day 3 and I felt like CRAP after easting (pork). I am switching to ONLY fish and chicken + veggies. Red meat contributes to inflammation and congestion.
    o Ate corvine fish + rice tonight
    o Had diarrhea due to VitC, I am reducing Vitc to 3000mg
    Day 5:
    – Date: 8/11/2020

    o Other: NAC/Bee Pollen/Mile Thistle/Probiotic
    – Comments
    o Day #9 of illness
    o Awoke with only slight stuffy nose and slightly tired. Not sure if tiredness is caused by Covid. My appetite is normal, however desire for alcohol is very low, since alcohol accentuates the tiredness
    o Today is best I have felt in 5 days. Don’t feel as tired
    o DIET is SO important!! Don’t believe the BS: Food and Vitamins are a HUGE influence on how your body deals with this illness!!! You ARE what you eat!!!
    o Ate corvine fish + rice tonight

    I find this thread fascinating. I’ve had HSV2 for the past 35 yrs. I’ve been taking Acyclovir / Valtrex (Famvir didn’t work for me), since the medicine was first available on the market. I’ve never had the flu. I’ve had colds, but always minor. I’ve also not had an HSV2 outbreak in over 10 years. Still get some symptoms now and then, but no outbreak. For over 20yrs I’ve taken 500mg daily for suppression therapy. When I do get a “tingle” near my jingle or leg, I up the dose to 1000mg to 1500mg per day and all symptoms are gone within 12 hrs. I definitely believe there is justification to study this medication more closely as it related to COVID-19, or other Coronavirus strains. Good luck everyone!

    HELLO JASON, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE WONDERFUL DETAILS. ASLO, I AM GLAD THAT YOU ARE GETTING BACK TO NORMAL. ONE QUESTION CAME TO MIND IS, WHY YOU DID NOT INCREASE YOUR DOSAGE TO 400 MG OR 800 MG SPECIALLY THE BEGINNING OF THE TREATMENT. I STRONGLY BELIEVE HIGHER SAFE DOSAGE HELPS MORE. THE IDEA YOU WANT TO INHIBIT THE RNA POLYMERASE, WHICH IS THE KEY PATHWAY FOR THE VIRUS REPLICATION. DRINK A GOOD AMOUNT OF WATER WHEN YOU TAKE ANY OF THESE ANTIVIRALS: ACYCLOVIR, VALACYCLOVIR, OR FAMCICLOVIR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SHARING!

    I just thought of this! And I’m no genius. Could having herpes save my life? How ironic. Yes I believe COVid IS a conspiracy. They found a way to treat hiv, herpes and all kinds of viruses. They want to control people using fear/hysteria.

    I am taking Acylovir post Lemtrada. I have had all the Covid-19 symptoms but I test negative. Is it possible the Acylovir interferes with the test giving a false negative? I have been tested 4 times.
