Take more meds??

Recommended Posts

mdhp

I'm on my work computer, so I'm being vague again. :) I took meds twice a day for 3 days as prescribed for an OB. It seemed to get better, and within a few days, it was back to bothering me. Should I take another round of meds, or is this common in some instances? The past two times, I took meds, and everything was fine within a week. I'm not sure how to handle this new scenario.

when i was giveng valtrex i was suppose to take it 2 x a day for 10 days (100mg) and after for suppressive down to 500 mg daily..so far it has kept them at bay and i havent had a serious outbreak since..i have stayed on the suppressive and i plan on staying on it for a year or more until the virus has moved around my body..then i may try to get off of them down the road.. the first year can be the worst... until your body gets used to the virus..have you tried taking lysine also? 5oo mg or more? that helps also..read fight back to see what other natural remedies help

I think everybodys bodies are different but I think suppressive therapy is a negative thing. I have read so many stories of people who had the same story you are describing. I think it is best to let your body deal with herpes on its own. Naturally building up antibodies and not supressing the virus. I have done this and it has worked very well. This is just my opinion of course.

Thanks for answering. I'm not taking Valtrex as a supressive but as a treatment therapy. It just didn't seem to do the trick this time like it did the first few. I just wonder if I should refill another prescription and give it another round. I guess it couldn't hurt anything, especially if you, Regret, were taking it for 10 days that way.

I will start up the lysine. I had forgotten about it. I stopped taking it several months ago with no issues, so I didn't bother anymore. I guess it could still help during this time though!

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!

      “..Meanwhile, the present study suggests LDXGFG as an alternative, inexpensive, and lasting-effect medicine for curing HSV2 infection caused genital herpes....” Anyone  seen any further research on this ?
