    I want to warn others of valtrex withdrawal. I took it for a week and then two days later took one and had horrible back and neck pain. After that if I didn't take it I would get weakness in legs and burning and tingling all over and nervousness and horrible back pain. My blood pressure went high and heart rate high all from not taking it. I finally am getting better a few days now. I also had muscle spasms and severe insomnia and restless legs..it was unlike anything before. I do not drink or do drugs..I never thought an antiviral could do this. I want to give you encouragement that it shouldn't last long but go to doctor to get checked anyway.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • At first I thought this was gas/indigestion and treated it as such, but nothing would change. I rarely eat fried foods, and have extremely good cholesterol labs. The last attack was so painful I could not catch my breath and I could not walk on my own. I did not have a fever, but I thought somehow my appendix ruptured and was poisoning my stomach because I just wanted to pass out. I was shocked to learn I had gallstones and an enlarged gallbladder. I've had these symptoms for over 6 or 7 years. I was pregnant with twins in 2007, and would blame the twins for getting "too high" into my ribs when I had this pain with them, but I bet it was my gallbladder flaring up, even then. At that time, I would have been on Zoloft for 4 years.
