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.

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.

      Anyone heard of this research before? Dutch professor promoted in September 2017 on it and had some interesting results on patients with severe HSV1 symptoms. (last alinea) "Healing severe cold sore
      Arts achieved a remarkable success in research into three patients with a herpes infection. An infection with a herpes virus is common and leads to, for example, a cold sore. In the three patients, the symptoms were much heavier with ulcers throughout the face. Genetic research yielded three different genetic defects, but functional research showed that all three patients had a shortage of the antibody interferon gamma (IFN-γ). This explained the severe symptoms. A treatment in which the shortage of IFN-γ was abolished, caused the symptoms to disappear like snow in the sun for all three patients." (its in Dutch but you can translate by right clicking)
