Just switched herpes medications. Afraid new one won't be as effective.

Recommended Posts

I have been taking Valcyclovir for the past yesr ever since I was first diagnosed. Just recently I lost my medical insurance. The valcyclovir was $125 a month and could not afford that. My dr prescribed me acyclovir which is only $13 per month. He says it will work the same but I am nervous. I am going from 1 pill a day to 4. Can anyone vouch for this new pill?

Unfortunately, I did experience less efficacy with acyclovir. I started acyclovir after taking generic valtrex for some time, for the same reason as you. I found it did very little to help when I felt like I was getting an OB, and actually made me feel more fatigued. My insurance started paying for generic valcyclovir again, thank goodness. Sorry to have to be negative, but that's my experience. It may be worth it to try and challenge your insurance company.
