Outbreaks while taking antiviral meds?

Recommended Posts

Do people still get outbreaks while taking the meds? Furthermore would someone be likely to have an outbreak on meds even if they had up until that point been asymptomatic?

Hey there! 👋 

Yes, people can still have outbreaks while on antivirals. The meds cut shedding down by around 50%, so it lessens the chances of passing herpes to a partner and having full-on outbreaks (since an outbreak is basically a whole bunch of viral shedding that overwhelms the area).

How often and how severe outbreaks will be depends on a whole host of factors beyond meds: how long you’ve had herpes, your immune system, how much stress is in your life and overall how healthy you are (mentally and physically).

Idk, I never showed symptoms before though. I've apparently bern walking around for two years with it and never once had an outbreak until now
