Constant symptoms

Recommended Posts

not4me

I had what I thought was my first OB at the beginning of the month app I've had this for awhile and never knew). Took 10 days of Valtrex for treament, then decreased to suppressive of 500 mg. Felt tingling, etc so bumped it back up. Now I am back down to 500 mg and feel like I still have the tingling, itching, etc. I inspect the area LIKE CRAZY and have no idea if what I am seeing is normal or not. Meaning, not sure if that's the way things looked before, or if it might be the initial start of a bump. (HSV 2)

I'm afraid to back off the meds, but I am also afraid to take too MUCH of the meds. I have no idea of what is 'normal' yet....for every day non outbreak days OR for the onset of outbreaks. I'm so incredibly frustrated. How long can I stay on the increased dose? And is there any harm in doing that for extended periods? I need any advice you can give me!

THANK YOU.

you should consult your doc about your uncontrolable ob instead of uping your dosage on your own, veltrex does have side effects and sometimes this can be serious especially if you over dose yourself. this is whatg i found out

What is Valtrex?

Valtrex is an antiviral drug. It slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can fight off the infection. Valtrex will not cure herpes, but it can lessen the symptoms of the infection.

Valtrex is used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses in adults and children. Illnesses caused by herpes viruses include genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, and chickenpox.

Valtrex is used to treat cold sores in children who are at least 12 years old, and to treat chickenpox in children who are at least 2 years old.

Valtrex may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Important information about Valtrex

Before taking Valtrex, tell your doctor if you have HIV/AIDS, a weak immune system, kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis), or if you have had a kidney or bone marrow transplant. Valtrex can be harmful to the kidneys, and these effects are increased when it is used together with other medicines that can harm the kidneys. Tell your doctor about all other medications you are using. You may need dose adjustments or special tests when taking certain medications together with Valtrex.

"We believe that ∆gD-2 may be more promising than other previous vaccine candidates because it elicits a different type of immune response against HSV-1 and HSV-2 that is more effective in preclinical models at clearing virus and preventing the establishment of latency. In nonclinical models, immunization with ∆gD-2 elicits antibodies that facilitate the killing of infected cells, rapidly clearing the virus and thereby inducing sterilizing immunity," added William Jacobs, PhD, co-Inventor and Professor of Microbiology & Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine."...
