Medication for hsv-2?

Recommended Posts

kel0329

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!
