Generic Valtrex (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride)

Recommended Posts



I am wondering if anyone else here is taking the generic form of Valtrex (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride).

I decided to go back on suppressive therapy since I get an outbreak about once a month (since three years ago). I have only been taking the generic for 6 days. I did some research and found that the generic form is available. I had it filled through the same Canadian pharmacy I got brand name Valtrex from since I trusted them. I paid $160 for 30 1000 mg pills. I see I can get it cheaper other places online, but still researching the reliability of the pharmacies. I called a local pharmacy here in the states and they didn't have the generic form. It was weird...

Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone else is using the generic version and what are your experiences with it.

Any differences from the Brand name Valtrex?

Cost and experience filling prescription etc?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
