A New Fibromyalgia Remedy: Antiviral Drugs

Wednesday 16 April 2008

U.S. News & World ReportU.S. News & World Report has published a news article about a treatment for fibromyalgia involving antiviral drugs.

January W Payne, the article’s author, says:

A recent book, The New Fibromyalgia Remedy: Stop Your Pain Now with an Anti-Viral Drug Regimen … suggests that antiviral medicine and food allergy treatment can be quite effective. Author Daniel C. Dantini, a Florida otolaryngologist who himself has fibromyalgia, says he believes that fibromyalgia is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, herpesvirus 6, or parvovirus. He says antiviral medications work in 70 to 75 percent of his patients, along with massage and other therapies. Using Dantini's treatment method, most patients see their symptoms improve by "about 20 to 50 percent during the first four weeks," the book says. By six weeks, most chronic symptoms are totally resolved. Most people take the antiviral medications for 10 to 14 weeks, while others need the drugs for up to six months, the book says.
