Has the valtrex or acyclovir supressant treatment worked for you?

Recommended Posts

maryland

I have been taking 400mg of acyclovir daily. My last dosage will be in December. My ex took only 1000mg of valtrex for 3 months and hasn't had one outbreak so far.

I was wondering if anyone hadn't had a problem after taking acyclovir or valtrex for a while.

I am currently back on suppressive treatment with valtrex 500 mg once a day. I still break out but that's because I am stressed out. A member on here named Ace has been on suppressives for 20 something years and has only had 2 outbreaks. Hth!

I take 800mg of acyclovir daily and up it to 800mg two or three times a day for like three days if I feel symptoms and have had 2 outbreaks this year that have only lasted for like 3 days and I haven't spread it to my spouse at this point.

I take valacyclovir 500 mg once a day for suppression. I haven't passed it to my partner of 3 years, and hoping and I never do, but I still get ob's once a month or even more if I am really stressed out. However, I feel little symptoms about 3 to 4 times a week. I sometimes wonder is me taking medication making my virus even stronger. I tried to stay off the meds, but the guilt of passing it to my bf is too strong to handle, therefore I got right back on my meds. I can admit I am horrible at taking pills. I am about to take it right now before I forget. I also take vitamins on and off...more on lately since i am trying to get rid of so many frequent outbreaks. I need more sex back in my life!!!!! =]

Hey maryland, I have taken antivirals for the past 25 years, both acyclovir and valtrex, now its generic Valacyclovir. I have yearly blood functions test done when I get my girly check-ups, so far no liver or kidney or any other bad organ levels. I have always used antivirals. I'm married 22 years to a still non h man :) . He tested a few months ago. Make sure its right for you and talk with doctor too. I set these test up with every new doctor I see. They don't have a problem since my preventive check-ups cover these blood test. Hope this helps. Happy holidays. Truly, Ace :)

Hey lydia, have you tryed liquid sublingual Vit.b12 complex, I get at walgreens, it goes under tongue and just works great for my prodrome symptoms. I too get tingles and flush feelings in the lower back, spine and tailbone area. This Vit has worked for me for 25 years now. Take care. Truly, Ace :)

Hello aces, I still haven't gotten a chance to get it but I sure am :) I'm also trying the oil of oregano. It feels really good on my lower back and I've been putting on topically when I do have an ob. It burns, but it makes everything heal super fast. Happy holidays everyone!

Hey lydia also try bactine topically it has a numbing agent in it and it does numb that area :) . Also don't forget Epsom salts for the bath waters, so very soothing.

I was also wondering about taking the meds every day and if it would totally prevent an OB. If so, I think I might try it even though I prefer to be all natural. I have only had GHSV1 for a few months but these sores keep popping up and I am getting very tired of it. I know a few people have had great success but wondering if anyone has been taking the suppressive meds and still gets frequent OBs?

I take Vit.b12 liquid sublingual, it helps reduce stresses, gives energy and promotes good nerve health. It's my key to keeping my prodromes , tingles and flushed feeling in the lower back spine area, from getting to me. I still get these even being on daily supressive therapies, but I don't get outbreaks. Two in 25 years is a great track record. If I had to take anything other than antivirals, it would be L-Lysine and Vit.b12 sublingual. That's as natural as you can get. Take care, Truly Ace :hithere:

Ace- Before being on the antivirals, did you get frequent outbreaks? I notice that I still get OBs, even while on the Valtrex, so I stopped taking the Valtrex every day, worried about its effects on my kidneys.

      Thanks for your story.  It seems similar to mine. Fortunately for you it seems your boyfriend is willing to pursue some kind of understanding. Since I wrote about what happened to me, my boyfriend broke up with me. The ironic thing is he told me this happened to him about 15 years ago with another woman. He said it was very traumatic for him and felt like the same thing once again. So it seems he had been exposed before and could very possibly have already been carrying the virus. Perhaps he knew and didn't tell me. I am really not sure but the relationship is over for now since he won't discuss it with me. So much fear information and confusion out there about the virus. I don't think they really understand how it happens so they tell everyone to be careful. Even having the virus it has been such a non-issue in my life until now that it appears there is so much stigma around it. It seems more like it is the Pharmaceutical companies wanting to make money off a common virus that affects so many on such a deep level, receiving love and physical contact.  Feels like a big scam to me.  The information was so different when there were no drugs to reduce or suppress the virus. It is all very confusing to me.

      I don't have hsv1 (2 instead) but yes, it is posssible to have an ob without the usual syptoms- or to miss more subtle signals. in my exprience said ob is mild (ie not painful).

      I contacted one of the ayurveda doctor in india he is saying there is 60% chances of cure through ayurveda for herpes Details: Please see the treatment details mentioned below
      Treatment Duration: 12 months - 18 months - 24 months.
       
      Generally majority of young patients with not a long history of infection gets cured in initial 12 months, but there are possibilities that the cure might need a total of 2 year’s medication too.
       
      Therefore you can start with first 6 months of medication and depending upon the results and prognosis further medication can be ordered later. 
       
      Initial results of our medication will be felt after completion of 90 days to 120 days and generally the symptoms don’t occur after 120 days or sometimes even if the symptoms re-occurs it will be mild and will disappear shortly,
       
      Please understand that, we are not treating the symptoms but the virus, therefore till the virus is alive inside the body any time symptoms can occur, but majority of cases what we have seen is after the 120 days completion of medication symptoms seldom occurs and even if the symptoms occurs it will be very mild and will go away faster, so dont worry even if you get any symptoms during the course of medication. 
      Our aim is to cure the virus and not the symptoms, symptoms is just associated with the virus activity and after the 120 days medication the viral activity will be reduced and not fully stopped and that’s why you can get symptoms during the treatment, but this viral activity will be weak, and that’s why symptoms will be milder and will go away faster.  As the treatment progresses then the viral activity will further reduce and ultimately the virus will be dead. 
       
      About Medication: Medication will be in the tablet format which will be of 4 different variety to be taken after food. Generally non vegetarian food has to be reduced to the maximum while on treatment. Consume more of vegetarian food only for better and fast results.
