Think I feel a outbreak coming

Do you have antivirals that you take? I am on suppression therapy now, but when I was not I would had a prescription for acyclovir 800mg that i would take 3x's a day for 5 to 7 days. My doctor does still keep this prescription at my pharmacy just in case I do have a breakout. I am not sure what else would stop it. I am watching this topic to see if others have used other methods. 

When I would feel the prodrome symptoms it would go something like this: My doctor had it so I have the antivirals on hand, can refill them, or if I am out I can call her office and it is the one prescription they will refill over the phone for me because they understand I am not gonna wait for the sores to show up so I can come in and show it to them. 

Honestly, I am glad my doctor understands that waiting once I recognize my prodrome symptoms is pointless and causes me unnecessary pain. Once we each learn out prodrome symptoms they are pretty easy to identity (typically). You mentioned yours above. Mine start as a  wanna be itchy tingly feeling, numbness, next the burning, then the major nerve pain sets in that runs from the back of knees up to my lower back.
