Thomas Henderson: The Role of Antiviral Therapy in Chronic Fatigue Treatment

"Patients were treated with the antiviral, valacyclovir (Valtrex), at a dose of 1000 mg twice a day. Only one patient experienced nausea and discontinued the antiviral. Improvement occurred over the course of 3-5 months. Eighty-six percent of the patients responded by 3 months, and 92% responded by 5 months. Symptoms of fatigue, exertion induced malaise, excessive sleep, napping, unrefreshing sleep, headaches, cognitive symptoms, and emotional symptoms all resolved."

"These data are also consistent with prior studies of antiviral treatment of SEID. Lerner and colleagues found significant and persistent improvement in symptoms and in cardiovascular function in SEID patients who were treated with the valacyclovir.15,16 Montoya and colleagues reported a 75% response rate to another antiviral, valganciclovir, in SEID patients with high IgG titers to EBV and HHV-6.17 Antiviral therapy may be a powerful tool in the fight against SEID."
