Not sure what to do now that my prescription has run out.

Recommended Posts

fugazi1

Hi, I have had a few different prescriptions for Valtrax since my diagnosis 2 years ago. The most recent was with a Dermetologist after I made an appointment for an outbreak I had on my thigh and I was unsure at the time if this was HSV. This prescription has just expired and I now have to make another appointment with the Dermatology clinic to have it refilled. However I am currently not insured and the visit is going to cost me $200. I had an earlier prescription with planned parenthood but this also expired long ago. Now I am wondering what will be the cheapest way to get a new prescription. Unfortunately the planned Parenthood in my area has a huge waiting list for check ups and I want to have my prescription fillled over the coming days. Just wondering if anybody could offer any advice or suggestions here? 

 

Many thanks!

I got HSV tested through stdcheck.com and paid around $55 for the single test. When I got my results they also offered a free doctors consultation as well as prescription services. So that could be an option for you. Before you try it, ask if they provide ongoing RX refills.

When you order your test you choose a labcorp or quest lab near you and you just go there for them to draw your blood. They do IGG type testing, you can purchase HSV1, HSV2 or both. You can just use your first name initial and last name. Then when they email you your positive results, they offer you the consultation and the prescription.

Ok cool, thank you. I will do this. Did you have to wait long for results of blood test?

Powder or pills?

Is quality reliable? Did you run any lab tests to check purity?

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
