Preventing outbreak during high stress

Recommended Posts

littlekblady

Hi all, ghsv1 here. Have been for about 5 years. I've had a few outbreaks since then, but recently started taking 500mg valtrex a day as suppressive therapy since I'm in a relationship.

Anyway, I wanted to see if anyone had advice about preventing an outbreak during a highly stressful time. All advice I've read focuses around limiting stress your life, but as we all know, sometimes that's not possible.

I will be entering a high-stress situation at work for the next few months and am wondering what I can do to prevent outbreaks. Is the 500mg daily valtrex enough? Should I increase the dosage during particularly stressful times? Honestly I'm just so anxious about getting another outbreak that I'm worried I will cause one again lol.
