Viva la Espana

Just walked into the pharmacy located in my building here. I asked if it was possible to get Valtrex without a prescription. She said "of course" and asked what strength and for how many days I wanted. Picking up a 42 day 500mg dose tomorrow morning at the hefty price of $55! No insurance, no prescription, no nothing. Hoping this will be the end to my constant obs.


Folks, it doesn't have to be more difficult than that. You guys in the US are getting raped by the mighty pharmas, but you already know that. I paid $300+ in the US for the one week I was prescribed when I was newly diagnosed.


The only "problem" is that the pharmacist asked me if I was the pilot living in the building (I moved in three weeks ago). I asked how she knew. Said the door lady had talked about me. So now I am no longer "the pilot", I guess am "the pilot with herpes". Hahahaha Good thing is no one seems to care too much about it here.

Ha ha. The pilot with herpes. Made me chuckle for som reason. I'm glad no one seems to care too much where you are. We sure could take some lessons over here.


$300 per week is insanity!!! I'm blessed with good health insurance and pay $10 for a month supply of generic valtrex. I hope it helps you - it sounds like you've had a lot of frustration with this lately. I Will say that as much as I dislike taking meds daily, it sure beats an outbreak! Good luck :)
