What's the real story on Valtrex?

Recommended Posts

PurpleandGray

Dos anyone know the real story on Valtrex? Meaning is it safe to stay on longterm? I've been on it fir two full years now. I still di get burning OB pain and tiny sores but I'm a lot better then I was at the beginning of my diagnosis. So am I ok with staying on it longterm? Or should I come off it and let my body rest for awhile?  I hear that it can stop working after awhile which is a big fear of mine! What do you all think?

I was on it for 5 years and eventually it gave me horrible side effects and I just felt shitty overall.  If I could go back I would have come off it earlier.  It’s very hard but I’m just not a fan of the drug.  Now I’m trying to find natural ways to stay symptom free still struggling.  My advice is to come off and let your body use it’s own mechanism to fight it along with natural remedies that can help.

I’ve just come off aciclovir after taking a high dose for almost a year, it just doesn’t work that well for me. First couple of days I felt better than I had done in months but I can feel the tingling, burning and neuralgia pain slowly creeping back in and the sores are coming back. It’s totally disheartening at times.

Thanks guys. Miss Home I’m so sore you’re dealing with this too, I was put on LDN which seems to help the burning pain. Are you taking any natural supplements?

My Doctor gave me Amitriptyline for the neuralgia pain but it turned me into a walking zombie, I could barely function whilst using it. I’m taking zinc but I don’t think it makes much difference. Nothing seems to keep this virus under control, I’m riddled with it and probably contagious as f’ck :joy:

I’m so sorry :(  How long have you had this? I’m on Amitri as well but your right it doesn’t do all that much. Lystine helped me the most. My doctor said I can take up to six grams during an OB which is a lot.

Thank you!! I had bad side effects too and no one really believed me..

I encourage you to stay off it and try natural supplements like Lystine  or Oil of Oregano. Each person’s body is different so it will take some time to find out what works for you but in the end it will be worth it.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
