Does suppressive therapy cut down on ORAL shedding?

I was diagnosed with both oral and genital hsv (still don't know which type) this past December.

I've had two sores on my lips including my primary outbreak and no genital outbreak besides my primary.

My partner is HSV negative but I would like to share oral sex with him.

Also, if I am on suppressive therapy and I feel prodrome does that mean I need to avoid intimacy? Or is the antivirals still working to reduce shedding even with prodrome?

Antivirals do reduce the risk of oral transmission. However if you do have any symptoms it would be wise to avoid contact with that area to be safe.
