Valcyte (valganciclovir) for CMV Prophylaxis "Valgan takes care of cmv well I had a spk transplant that had cmv I did not have, my dose was 2 tabs 2x for 21 days then 1 2x for 14 days then went off only drug that treats cmv good. I would not take long term because of stomach pain and resistance to drug if future cmv infections should occur it becomes less effective like any other drug and the consequences can be dire for us with transplants, good experience with drug though pretty pricey though but life is priceless good luck"

Valcyte (valganciclovir) for CMV Retinitis "I was diagnosed in 2018 with CMV anterior uveitis. I started valcyte 900 mg twice daily for 2 weeks then was tapered to 450mg twice daily for 2 months then 450mg once daily for 6 months but once I stopped the medication the symptoms flare again ( blurred vision and severe headache with high ocular pressure almost 50 mmHg ). The worst thing in this medication is its side effects for example it lowers the WBC, causes infertility and I was getting sick easily; mood changes and last thing is sometimes this medication may cause stomachache."
