Does Valtrex affect results of IgG test?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this has been covered before but I can't find what I'm looking for through the search function.


I'm planning to take a second IgG test (just for peace of mind to confirm the initial test results) but I've already started taking Valtrex (500, once daily) to prevent transmission and I'm wondering if that will influence the IgG test results. I tried googling about this and saw contradictory info. Anybody know for sure?

No, it doesn't. The IgG tests for the antibodies while Valtrex suppresses the virus itself.
