Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • My WBC count was 15.6 last week before taking Valtrex, now after finding many cherry angiomas since starting the Valtrex I was taken off the medicine and had more blood tests run. Now my WBC count is 16.1 after being on the medicine for almost a week.


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I was diagnosed with Emphazyma in July 2013 after visiting my doctor because of sharp pain when I inhale. I have smoked a pack of cigarettes a day for over 20 years. My doctor perscribed me Dulera and I use it two times a day AM/PM. I have a feeling like there is a cotton ball in my throut.
