How much longer with the Acyclovir?

Recommended Posts

:pI stopped taking it as per my doctor's instructions. One week later, I can feel something else beginning! So I am taking all of it again, do many of you find that you have to be on meds 24/7? How will I know when to stop taking the medicine?

IDK.. if there's a real answer to that.. I'm on supressive therapy myself.. and I suppose I could stop anytime.. and then take the meds only during an OB.. (like b4)

But.... I'm dating a person who's h-free and I find peace of mind being on meds to reduce his chance for getting the virus..

I think it's up to you really...

Yes everyone is different

Some people, like me, don't take meds when we are not dating anyone. We allow our bodies to try and regulate it.

However, like Liz, when I am dating someone I take 400mg of acyclovir an 1000mg of lysine to make sure I do not pass this along.

Good luck

JB

      Hi! I was diagnosed one year and four months ago. Not a major first outbreak. Than 2,5 months later my second. Then faster a Little ob. Then is was without for almost 7 months. I really felt that was how i could handle things. Then in June i started having ob after ob. It was a very hot summer here in Holland. Also started a new relationship so more frequent sexual Activity. Not sure what coused it but those things i did feel like could trigger it.  Started acyclivir two months ago. That helps a great deal. But really dont want to Stay on Anti virals. Willing to try natural stuff but also right now feeling very happy not worrying all the time. Need to discuss again with my doctor soon.

      Oh wow that sounds mind boggling,, maybe your diet is your problem as well. Dang I thought guys had it a little easier seeing as tho you could keep your ob's dry better than a woman for it to heal..  I've never heard of Neem what's is that

      Yea I believe it may have to do with my diet i just recently cut out beef, chocolate & nuts & started eating more fish & fruits & smoothies and my symtoms are going away suprisingly. I think it was more so the chocolate for me lol smh im gonna miss it. And NO WAY your stomach!?? Like how does that happen lol that's so weird
