valtrex and prodromes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!


I've been on valacyclovir for almost 2 months for suppressive purposes because I'm in a new relationship. Before taking it, I got maybe 3 outbreaks a year, always in the same place. I started to recognize my prodromes pretty well (I've had herpes for 3 years) and knew when I was going to have an outbreak.


Well now it seems like I'm having prodromes all the time! But it feels like burning (which honestly could be from sex lol), instead of itchy (which is typical for me) and not in a specific area, but everywhere 'down there'! I did just finish antibiotics for BV (lucky me) which had me awfully itchy as well, but the burning is still there.


Has anyone experienced prodomes more frequently AFTER starting meds? Basically I think I'm just being SUPER paranoid about passing it to my boyfriend. I just find it odd that my body had a pretty good handle on it ( my obs were infrequent and would clear up in 7 to 10 days) and have these possible prodromes AFTER starting valacyclovir.


Thanks for any feedback/reassurance :-)
