Do the AV's ever ramp up your other symptoms...

Recommended Posts

Just curious...I'm on 500mg of Famvir twice a day and I swear it's ramping up burning and irritation...I've experienced this with valtrex as well....It may help with shedding ( which makes no sense given how active it feels) and it may even make the OB's easier but it sure doesn't alleviate symptoms or pain...anyone else experience this? There is def a different feeling to this burning than the normal neuralgia as well...

I just posted the same myself. I was on 10 days of valtrex and experienced prodrome symptoms that entire time. Today is my first day off the medication, and no prodrome symptoms... very strange.

Well f’ck me, this has happened to me too! Came off aciclovir on the 1st of Jan after being on a high dose for almost a year and I swear I haven’t felt this good in months! I’m still experiencing mild symptoms but nowhere near what I used to. Was afraid to comment in case people thought I was raving mad! Not sure how long this will last and it may come back with a vengeance knowing my luck but so far I’ve had 5 relatively peaceful days and I say Amen to that!

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring

      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...

      Doesn't sound like HSV. You can get tested in 12 wks to be sure. Get rest
