I found something interesting on the web at a mex online pharm site. It talks about Vilona (ribavririn), and actually mentions it being used to combat or cure herpes and gives the required dosage - I can't read spanish- so maybe somebody can translate the following:
Herpes zoster, varicela y herpes genital agudo (primario o recurrente): VILONA® 18: 1 cápsula 3 veces al día, durante 6 días como mínimo.
• Profilaxis de las recurrencias del herpes genital.
VILONA® Cápsulas: 1 cápsula diaria (dosis única) durante tiempo indefinido.
So it is being used in Mexico to combat herpes - from what I can kind of get out of it I think the dosage is 1 pill 3 times a day for 6 days??? You can find this on the above address. Also I've been to another pharm site that is selling the Vilona at $107 per bottle 18 cap's. Does anyone know how I could get some for cheaper besides going to MEX?
