Outbreaks on suppressive therapy

Recommended Posts

I got to see my GP about a week ago and I got him to prescribe me acyclovir as a suppressive therapy treatment for me.

actually talking to him made me feel a little better about the whole thing. 

But ive been taking the acyclovir now three times a day and I’m supposed to continue it for about 6 months to help my body create antibodies (or so my doctor said.)

so far the treatment seemed to be working but now I believe I am experiencing prodrome symptoms and I’m feeling disappointed that I’m feeling this so early into the treatment. Especially since I seem to get sores inside my vagina and also on my clitoris which is extremely  uncomfortable...

i just want to be feeling normal again but it feels like every time I’ve made peace with this something else happens. I thought the suppressive would help me. Idk what to do now. I’ll keep with it just in case but idk, I’m feeling down

That’s sad to hear I actually just got back from seeing a GP who would not give me any medication for suppressive therapy as I got diagnosed at a sexual health clinic thy apparently don’t share records. I’m told I have to wait 3 months or for another outbreak to get anything from clinic which is insane that I have to get affected and be in pain to prove I need it when all I want is to try and make it never come back. Hearing you say it came back whilst on meds is a little depressing for me as I hope being on them would make me feel like I don’t actually have it. Seems everyone says stay positive but the more I learn and interact with doctors the more I get pissed off and think our health and legal system is a joke.
