I would like opinions on the drug Valcyte. Dr. Montoya at Stanford perscribed it for me. Dr Powell, and Dr. Stratton think it is worth trying. I am concerned about the side effects on the central nervous system, so please send me your thoughts on this. Dr. Montoya said it may reduce inflammation in the brain, and it will also help with my Epstein Barr lab test titer which is a little high at 1.09. (IGG should be less than .90)
I couldn't bear restarting the Abx, and I never saw a glimmer of improvement in 3 years.
I am interested in fecal transplants from a healthy donor. I took a lot of Abx during my childhood due to various illnesses. This may likely have had a detrimental effect on my gut bacteria.
Dr. Montoya said that Stanford is looking into fecal transplant studies, but I shouldn't do it at this time.
Please tell me what you think about about all of this.
