Antiviral Approach to Meniere's - Month 17 Update



I've now been on Valacyclovir for 17 months and still doing great.  I started with the 3 times a day for 3 weeks, then 2 a day for 3 weeks and now on the maintenance dose of 1 pill a day.  I’ve had no vertigo since taking the Valacyclovir.  Some minor dizziness but I never know if that’s from the prescription and supplements or just a side effect of MM.




I reduced the number of "John of Ohio's" Meniere's supplements I was taking and seem to be doing well.  My doctor continues to monitor my kidney and liver function with blood draws every 6 months to ensure there is no damage from the extended use of the prescription.  I’m contemplating taking it every other day but terrified that the vertigo may return.  My doctor said she’s comfortable with whatever I decide. 

A trigger for me is definitely gluten.  I'm totally gluten free and it has helped tremendously.  Now if I dine out and there happens to be gluten in something I immediately get the brain fog, dizziness, headache and my bad ear starts to feel full.  I'm also eating organic foods as much as possible and exercising regularly.  I've also cut back on my NUCCA (chiropractic) appointments to every 8 weeks.

Visit With My Birth Mom


My last stop before leaving Nebraska last weekend was a visit with my birth mom.  It was my second time seeing her.  She and her sister met me for lunch in Omaha.  We had a really nice visit and it's wonderful getting to know her and her family better.

20 Year Class Reunion


I was the chairperson for my 20 year class reunion.  The planner in me absolutely loved putting a fun weekend together for my classmates.  I had a great committee of classmates working with me and together we pulled off a fun weekend of events.  Events included a Friday night get together at a bar in Lincoln, Saturday morning golf, school tour, bonfire, hayride and a family picnic on Sunday in the park.  It was great seeing everyone and catching up.


20 out of 38 showed up for the Saturday evening catered dinner and bonfire
