Dr. Troy W. Ross answered:

Is there a antiviral available for ebv?

None known

Epstein_barr_virus
Some doctors are treating EBV with valcyclocir, but there is NO evidence that it is effective. A healthy body will almost certainly clear the virus by itself. The problem is that you'll feel bad for a long time if you don't let your body recover. Sleep, nutrition, and not over exercising are the things that need to be focused on until you feel healthy again.

What are the effects of antiviral drugs?

Depends on the drug

Viral_infection
Some antivirals have methods of action that are very specific for a viral enzyme or protein and not people. Many, however, have effects that also cause toxicity in mammalian cells since that is where the virus replicates. Even those that are fairly specific can have side effects. As an example, some HIV drugs like AZT inhibit viral reverse transcriptase that we do not have but are still toxic.
