Am on anti virals which have given me unbelievable diaorreah. Tired, shakey, weepy. Is all this normal.

I last had it about 16 years ago, and don't remember feeling like this..

Hope you are feeling a bit better today, OP flowers

I've taken anti-virals once, for shingles like you, and I didn't feel great on them but wasn't as ill as you describe. My GP warned me they might make me feel unwell, so I guess side effects are quite normal. I decided I'd rather take the anti-virals than let the shingles take hold, and they worked thank goodness.
