Lysine question, a bit confused about some things

Recommended Posts


I have a question someone can help me with.. I have taken a lysine supplement in the morning for years and it has decreased my outbreaks a bit. But I have been researching and now I have confused myself with info regarding arginine lysine. So basically some clarification on this would be very helpful as it has been causing unnecessary stress!

Basically, I have read that chocolate, nuts, even whole grain are a no go? I am worried to even eat a little bit of this stuff now even though I don't remember getting an outbreak before due to eating them.. but anyways, so we can NOT eat this at all?

Or since I take a supplement can I eat some of these things and really how much is too much?

Is it best to take lysine in the morning? that's the way I have done it, I'll take it with my multivitamin and vitamin c.. but maybe there is a more effective way?

I truly love whole wheat bread and the thought of completely giving that up makes me sad so what is your opinion on all of this?

I just want to know how much to truly follow the lysine diet I want to be able to enjoy things and even a little chocolate here and there without worrying about the lysine/arginine ratio so much..but I can't find answers really anywhere that will help me.. so help here from you guys who have experienced this would be so helpful! Thank you!!

      Any guys in Dallas with HSV? Would love to connect with someone since I’m new to the condition.

      I get a generic 3 month supply of valtrex in the US for about $50...that’s one pill a day at 1000mg a pill.

      Makes complete sense to me.  My mother never exhibited HSV1, but never exhibited.  I am all for whatever it takes!

      I’ve been seeing this guy for two months now. I’ve had hsv2 down there for 3 years...never have I spread it to anyway, and had a relationship of a year and had sex with the same guy the whole year. So, when I started seeing this guy, I told him up front about it. Told him it really isn’t a huge deal and I’ve bever passed it but there’s a small risk. So 5 weeks in, we’ve had sex a few times and 17days after we had protected sex (I’m also on daily antiviral pills) he texts me saying he can’t pee because it is so painful. I am so depressed I passed it to him. I know he agreed to the risk, but neither of us actually “thought” i would pass it, if that makes sense. Always a risk, I know, and as I said, he agreed. But he is upset now. In denial and went almost a full week unable to urinate because he was in such bad pain. He did have a blister show up around Day 6 of the peein problem so it’s def herpes. Unsure what to say to him. I feel terrible for bringing that upon him. Anyone have similar situations? Also haven’t talked in a few days. Giving him time before trying to start a convo. I’m sure he doesn’t want to talk right now.
