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!

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to. 

      Thanks.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.

      This is total BS and scaremongering. Please study further on here and elsewhere to learn a few more facts.
