Unfortunately I found out Dr. Gacek is retiring so I can't get in there to get put on antivirals. I sent the information to the Dr i'm seeing now and when the information was fresh in his mind he was considering it and specifically said we can try antivirals or steroids but not both at the same time. Now he didn't even respond today to the question when I mentioned that, but rather chose to ignore me completely. I've been dealing with menieres for two years. I can get anywhere from 3-7 vertigo bouts a year that are brutal. I'm absolutely desperate to find a Doctor in the northeast that is willing to prescribe antivirals. Can anyone recommend one. I've done a tremedous amount of research over the years and the most positive information i've come across is the antiviral approach. Everything else seems to be horror stories or invasive surgeries or procedures. I know about the JOH regimen, but i'd rather just cure this problem. I tried to order acyclovir online, but the company was masquerading as a canadian pharmacy when in reality it was a company in india and indian produced acyclovir. I don't trust it at all. I'm sure if this continues I will get fired from my job. I constantly hear people say they can't do that, but i'm certain they will.
