Brief Answer:
Ganciclovir or Foscarnet can help you.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Anti viral drugs like ganciclovir and Foscarnet can help to slow down the disease process. These can be given orally but you will have to consult your treating physician for the proper prescriptions.
Highly Active Anti Retroviral therapy is also used to decrease the disease progression.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
