Olive Leaf Extract and L-Lysine

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Tomorrow I am finishing my first course of Valtrex (500mg twice a day for 5 days) and I am now looking at alternative therapies. I believe some people have had some success with Olive Leaf Extract and L-Lysine so I'm planning to give them a shot. Can anyone let me know if I can take both supplements at the same time? Can these also be taken with Valtrex (assuming I have another outbreak again?). Thanks.

I take all three together... I told my Dr. and he didn't see an issue with this although he did say there was no medical research to support the effectiveness of Olive Leaf or Lysine. But he said if I think it helps then I should take it. I figure I'll do anything to eliminate OBs!

Thanks Hopefilled. Which brands are you taking and how many milligrams of active ingredient are there in each tablet (both Olive Leaf and L-Lysine)?

I take lysine and olive leaf extract. I read somewhere not to take them at the same time. So I take the olive leaf in the morning and the lysine at night.

      If you've never had any symptom I expect you prob have HSV1 from childhood and not genitally.

      I have hsv1, i got off of birth control about  9 months ago, so i dont think this can still be hormonal acne. Why is this happening too meee. Its just getting worse overtime and ive had this happening for a good 3 weeks now just getting worse and worse. They are mostly on my cheek area, but i will get occasional single pimples around hairline or forehead . This is the worst its been! Anyone else have had this issue ? Its gross

      yeah, I got HSV from him and HPV . I'm pretty sure the HPV is from him too but no way to be 100%. I have never tested positive for that before though. The coincidence is too much.   How to trust somebody?? I really don't need any more gifts.

      Since he has given your H then I advise you to make sure that  he's not giving New gift this time  ( another lovely virus) otherwise have sex as you like but not with ob's. I say that because it happened with so many people and I don't want to mane any. Thanks

      I'm so confused! My IgM was positive yesterday and today I found out the IgG test came back that I am negative for HSV2 but showed evidence of IgG for HSV 1 (she said I needed to retest in 3 months).  I've never had ANY symptoms ever. So do I tell people I have genital herpes or do I tell them I just have cold sores virus?  I have no way of know if I have it on my mouth or below! What do I do???

      Another thing a high count might indicate is how far back you were infected.  It's possible that over time your body keeps developing more antibodies to keep the virus replication in check.
