Is Prescription medication for herpes better than taking vitamin C and lysine? What are the pros and cons? How expensive is the prescription medication?

Evaluate

Scientifically speaking, the research shows antivirals work.  There is research out there that shows lysine as beneficial, but not as effective.  Essentially anything that helps you immune system stay strong is effective, but not fail-proof.

Antivirals have been shown to reduce shedding (spread to another person) and symptom duration and intensity.
