Valacyclovir not working?

Recommended Posts


I take 1 g of valacyclovir daily, and I still get a minor outbreak every month a week before I start my period. Does anyone else have problems like this? Why isn’t the valacyclovir blocking the outbreak??

Valaciclovir is working in 70 - 80 % of the cases (this is at least what I recently read). 

Menstruation seems to be a trigger for a lot of women (me included for a long time, now it has gotten way better with the time). Have you checked your hormones recently? Just to be sure. 

I can recommend you 

1) to start drinking St. John's wort days before your period 

2) "lady's mantle" - also prepared as tea. 

3) maybe try Aciclovir - also a pill to fight herpes. I personally prefer Aciclovir instead of Valaciclovir! 

I recently read a study about pomegranate. It seems to regulate the hormones and moreover the researchers showed that pomegranate extract had a comparable effect on herpes like aciclovir. Maybe you could give it a try? Just be sure that the extract is made from the whole fruit, not just the peel. However, I have not tried it out yet, so I don't know if it works.

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
