Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Valtrex but were Afraid to Ask

Congratulations!  You’ve finally decided to stop being ashamed of your genital herpes and address the issue straight on.  Lucky for you, you have some excellent options when it comes to treating genital herpes.

Valtrex is a drug specifically designed to attack herpes straight on.  It has three main uses.  Valtrex works wonders on cold sores, helps prevent outbreaks of genital herpes, and treats herpes Zoster, also known as shingles.  Valtrex is safe for almost anyone to use, except in a few specific cases.  If you’re pregnant, have a weak immune system, or suffering from a kidney problem, ask your doctor before taking Valtrex.  He may prescribe a lower dose, or an alternate medication.  If you’re allergic to acyclovir, you shouldn’t take Valtrex either.  If you’re currently taking probenecid or cimetidine, your doctor may also recommend a lower dosage.  Other than that, though, Valtrex is the perfect solution to your herpes problem.  Valtrex is available with a prescription at your local pharmacy, and generic Valtrex is readily available online.

As soon as you feel that slight tingling sensation on your lips, where you know you’re about to get that nasty looking cold sore, that’s when you know it’s time to break out the Valtrex.  The earlier in the outbreak you take them, the better and more efficiently it works.  That’s why it’s important to have a supply of Valtrex available, even before you feel your next outbreak coming on.  Take 2 grams of Valtrex two times in that first day, and you have a good chance at killing that cold sore before it even comes to the surface.

For genital herpes, you take the full regimen, twice a day for ten days (meaning you need a total of 20 1-gram pills), the first time you have an outbreak, because the first outbreak is usually the most severe.  After that, the next time you feel an outbreak coming on, take two pills, twice a day for three days (a total of six pills), and you can usually pre-empt any future outbreaks.
