Any advice


Recommended Posts

I am finishing my first outbreak and I am unsure of how to handle my medicine now. I am feeling almost 100% and my doctor has me taking valtrex. I was told to take it for 10 days twice a day. I am on day 10 and now I don't know whether I am to stop taking it and wait to see when or if I have symptoms of another ob and then take it again or start taking 1g dose every day as a suppressant. Help, any advice would help...I am feeling better and just wanna figure out how to keep myself feeling good.

Hi, there I dont take valtrex, I take acyclovior, I'm no Dr. either, But I guess it's up to you, some people take it daily as a suppressor and other's only take it with outbreak's. You should deffinetly consult you'r Dr. Come join the chat and as your question there, and get someother people's opinion on the matter, Good luck. I've been told it get's better.

this is something you should talk with your doctor. if your finishing your 10th day of dosage then you might talk to your doctor about taking them regularily as with all meds there is side effects that can occurr and your doctor can advice and prescribe the rigfht dossage

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
