I got a message from my doctor saying he is willing to prescribe an antiviral, and he is asking what kind of dosage and duration I'm thinking about! My appointment is in two days. I have read the 2013 abstract about acyclovir/valacyclovir and the dosages. However, my main symptom is not vertigo. My current condition is a plunge in hearing and distortion; the minor dizzy spells are not even a problem right now. So, am I wondering if I will require the same treatment as someone who is desperately seeking relief from debilitating vertigo. I have gradually gotten on the JOH regimen and am a little bit better. Thanks for your input.
