Acyclovir vs Valtrex?

Recommended Posts

I've never tried Valtrex. Had good results with Acyclovir when I took it. Its my understanding that Valtrex stays in your system longer than Acyclovir. When I took acyclovir I took 3 200mg pills a day. I believe the suppressive dosage of Valtrex is 1 500mg pill a day. Hopefully someone with Valtrex experience can clarify that. Some people report side effects while taking one or the other. Switching from one to the other is most cases seems to help solve that problem.

Valtrex is usually a bit more expensive, I've heard. I've tried acyclovir 400 mg 2 times a day as Katydid says, and I had no OB's while I took them. I would try out acyclovir and if they don't seem effective enough try Valtrex then.
