Suppressive therapy and Valtrex

Recommended Posts

One of my questions is:

I am not on daily suppressive therapy and only have taken Valtrex when I think I am having a breakout ......When do I know that I should be on daily suppressive therapy? Like how many outbreaks a year? I think I've only had my initial breakout and perhaps 2 more. Also is there side effects on being on Valtrex continuously? I do have hypothyroidism and balancing my hormones was a struggle in my teens and now that I feel balanced as a young adult I dont want to interrupt this.

Hi dreamer, If this helps I only take the meds when I'm having sex, but I personally have no symtomss or OB's I just do it for the partner. My ex fiancé decided he was down for whatever and we didn't use condoms for two years and he remains HSV free (we are no longer together). Listen to your body and find what works best for you.
