Medication for hsv-2?

Recommended Posts


I have had hsv-2 since April 2009 and have only taken medication once and that was for my first break out. It was Valtrex 5 day.

I have an OB during every period and it's driving me nuts! Is there any prescriptions I can take that will stop that? I know I'll still have them but every month? C'mon!

Thanks! :)

Try suppressive medications

Ask your doctor to prescribe either Valtrex or Acycloir so that you can take it daily (acyclovir can be found at Walmart for $4 for a 90 day prescription). Also, look at the tab on the right that says "What is Lysine". Lysine has shown to help prevent outbreaks.

When I am dating someone I take 400mg of acyclovir and 1000mg of Lysine.

Good luck!

      What was the comment? I don't see it on their official Facebook Given the recent news that Crispr can result in all sorts of erroneous cuts when double strand breaks are involved, I'm surprised to hear they still believe they will run trials in a few months. The FDA recently blocked ex vivo crispr trials, I can't imagine them letting in vivo trials move forward given the recent reports

      How do you get in touch with a Moderator for this site? I am being bullied, unbelievably, on a support site.  I can't just let it go because it is happening to other people too.

      For the last time, my name is not Jay.  My name is Amy.  I am not telling you my last name.  I am a woman, not a man.  I've reported all of your rude comments to me and asked an Admin to prove to you that I am not Jay.  You are really pissing me off.  I'm pretty sure Spinky is in the same group on FB for meningitis and he can vouch for me.  Now get a life and leave me alone!!!!

      Ronald, could you please stop with the capital letters; it's annoying to read.
