Any update? Did you retest?October 13, 2020 at 10:53 pm #74257KayGuest
I usually keep a bottle of 400 mg Acyclovir in a drawer in case I get a HSV 1 or 2, flare up. I haven’t had one in decades then recently I got one. I took Acyclovir and HSV went away. After a few days, it came back! I thought I had a weakened immune system and I do. So I got more Acyclovir from my doctor this time 800 mg. Dr. said after done 800 mg take bottle of 400 mg twice a day or every 12 hours. I thought that was overkill. A week went by and I was ok so I didn’t take it twice a day. Now after a week I am having HSV-1 on my tongue and I just ran and took some Acyclovir after reading all this. Now I will take it twice a day because I don’t know if HSV is going to make me susceptible to COVID-19. After reading WoW Acyclovir is used for COVID-19. So I will just continue taking it twice a day for the foreseeable future. I read to take Famotidine, vitamin D and an aspirin. That was the President’s cocktail. I always take D and a aspirin. I will have to call the doctor to get Famotidine because I have nasal congestion every night. I haven’t been tested for Covid. I have not had a fever but have some other symptoms but they could be related to medical condition. I just wanted to say Acyclovir works. I don’t know if I had COVID-19 or not. I could be a long hauler. I felt nauseous today and I feel like it’s time to get a Covid 19 test. I’m thinking maybe Covid made the onset of HSV 1 & 2. And maybe Acyclovir prevented me from getting a fever. I could be asymptomatic. It’s time.October 15, 2020 at 5:35 am #74376Terri karmaGuest
I am thrilled to have found this website and read all these wonderful comments and experiences people have had. I have had valtrex prescribed to me for years now. I can vividly recall one time about two years ago when I was speaking to a nurse about the medication and she specifically told me that this drug helps for the common virus. She actually took it once a day as well. I have not taken it consistently but I do understand how the drug works and it does suppress viruses. Particularly the ones that are dormant in our bodies. I personally have not had Covid, but after reading all these wonderful comments, I will begin to take this medication once a day moving forward. And the truth is, the medical industry is there to make money, big money, this is why they will not admit that certain medications which have been on the market for several years now can actually work. they would rather receive billions of dollars to create a vaccine and new treatments, it’s a business at the end of the day. There’s no doubt Covid is a virus and it’s real, it has just been extremely over blown for profit gains across the world. I work in the Medicare industry, and I have seen Medicare fraud and billing for years. This was just a new way for the medical industries to fill their pockets. The facts are there and they’ve been proven, people that have died have been grossly overweight, had several underlining conditions, or of old age and taking several medications, which naturally would crush their immune system. it’s not to say some younger people have not passed from this, but let’s not forget the flu, car accidents, and several other things kill people on a daily basis. Their so-called projections stated 2.2 million Americans would die from this, we are hardly at 200 K, and the numbers have been so inflated that we really don’t know how many actually died specifically and only from Covid. I have clients tell me how somebody would die of a heart attack or a car accident and the hospital would either listed as a Covid death or call the family back and ask them if they can change the death certificate. These are mostly my senior clients, who can be easily manipulated. It’s a sad situation and it’s absolutely disgusting how much fraud is involved with this so-called pandemic (plandemic) I mean let’s be honest here, we are in the 21st-century where we can create human life from science, invertro etc, yet they want us to believe that they all the sudden are confused about this virus, and that there’s no treatment? you have to be blind to not see it..I wish everyone well, take care of your bodies, get in the sun, eat good, workout, take your vitamins, and you will be just fine.October 16, 2020 at 11:39 pm #74506Lorraine BarlettGuest
All, I have been taking Valcyclovir for a number of years to prophalactically treat my HSV. I have weak lungs due to 5-6 prior pneumonias (plus pleurisy) and severe allergies. I also have continued to work almost full time in a field that requires close exposure to other people. Yet I have not only not contracted COVID (unless in a mild, asymptomatic form), I tested positive for presumed antibodies in May! Now, call me crazy, but my thought when all this crisis arose was “I wonder if my Valtrex will help me avoid COVID”. AND I believe it has. I also suspect that the MAIN REASON big Pharma has not announced this drug as a possible treatment is because valcyclovir is now OFF PATENT and this cheaper and widely available. Remdesivir, however, is NEW and will make them a boatload of $$ once it gets out in the marketplace. Call me cynical, but use your own judgement!!October 16, 2020 at 11:41 pm #74507Lorraine BarlettGuest

I just want to support this thread!
My symptoms began pre-lockdown. I had lightheartedness, dizziness, shortness of breath, dry white crust around my mouth, and a tinted blue bottom lip. I had horrible migraines and just felt “off”. Then out of nowhere I came home from work and my heart started racing, my vision blurred, my hands went cold, and I couldn’t feel my fingers. I almost passed out with my fingers ready to dial 911.
Over the next few days the lightbeadness, shortness of breath, and feeling faint continued. I noticed I developed a rash on my back. I’ve had shingles in the past and assumed it was the same, even though this rash was widespread and not localized. So I got a prescription for Valtrex. I started to take it 2x a day. All of those symptoms went away.
I started to get a mild cold that turned into a horrible ear infection – I had to put an ice pack to my ear it was so bad. The doctor confirmed I had a “viral upper respiratory infection” and replaced the valtrex for antibiotics. Shortly after that my dizziness and lightheadness came back with horrible nausea and gi symptoms. The lightheadness wasn’t nearly as bad as it was initially. I had two nights where I had difficulty breathing and then I was fine. I was prescribed an anti-nausea and then omneperzaole or famotidine. I chose omneperzaole. I feel like valtrex saved my life or a trip to the hospital. And this treatment- by the grace of god – all came from an initial misdiagnosis of shingles! That put me on the valtrex!

I was not tested but started feeling bad like I was coming down with the virus. I had Acyclovir and started feeling better with in 2 days.
