In brief: Listen to body

Overall, there are no medications to treat mono.
Considering the average duration is 3 months, it is best to NOT push your activity levels. As you gradually improve, you gradually increase activity. Slow gradual resumption of normal activity is best. Since EB a sibling to herpes, OTC amino acid Lyseine and Rx for herpes may help one through the experience a bit more quickly
