Valtrex makers are assholes.

If any of you use Valtrex you'll understand. I was hoping the pills would be white, with some number on it so it could blend in with other meds...NO. THEY ARE FUCKING BLUE AND HAVE WHITE "VALTREX" WRITTEN ON THEM!! WHAT THE FUCK! So now I have to hide them in a safe, with the key to the safe hidden too!! Assholes.

Hang in there. The generic will be out soon, and then they won't even be able to put the brand name on it.

Yet another reason for me to NEVER take that sh*t. I

Not only that, but the Valtrex commercial I think misinformed a lot of people. One of my friends was telling me that it sucks that I have herpes because I have to take Valtrex everyday.

I told her that I don't have to take it, and that my parents offered to pay for it because of how upset I was over herpes, but that I probably will be off of suppressive therapy after a year.

She said "Yeah but you're not a responsible person if you don't take Valtrex. It's the only way not to spread it to someone else."

I think if I do get in another relationship, I probably will stay on suppressive therapy but it's really just the icing on the cake for prevention. People literally believe that Valtrex is the only way not to spread herpes... I think some people believe that that is the drug's sole purpose.

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
