Best Antiviral/pharmaceutical company?

Recommended Posts

Been awhile; I have HSV-2. Was on suppressive therapy with Mylan pharm Valtrex and it worked great. No symptoms but a couple prodome. Moved and took Camber Valcyclovir and it doesn’t work at all. Like AT ALL. Having a hard time getting Mylan around her. Haven’t taken anything really for a year as it doesn’t work, and it seems I have almost constant irritation or itchiness. Don’t want to go back to suppressive therapy or on meds at all but I will. What works for you all?

Hi there, 

i was also recently put on camber and it’s the only one Ive ever used,  since seeing your post, I must agree that my symptoms have not reduced since beginning this medication, I thought it was just my body but I guess it may just be the company. Have you tried taking acyclovir or something instead? I’m nervous about the price being a lot higher depending on the brand. 

Would also like others insight!

Acyclovir has worked great for me over the years. I take it in the morning and evening, so not as convenient as taking a once-daily valtrex, but definitely more affordable. Check out online pharmacy options offered by places like Walmart or Walgreens for super cheap prices, especially when you buy a 3 month supply all at once. Do you live in the US?

Thanks for the insight guys! I thought I was nuts, but I notice zero difference with the Camber valcyclovir. I’m surprised someone else has experienced this too. I originally thought I became immune to Valtrex; never did it occur to me that it could be a change in medicine until recently!

Yes I am in the US! East coast. Do they allow those with HSV-2 to take Acyclovir? I for some reason thought it was targeted for those with HSV-1! That’s great to hear it’s cheap. I have decent insurance with good prescription coverage as well.

I honestly think my issues are stemming from stress..and if I do anything to exasterbate it, even if my symptoms have subsided for the day (have sex, wear jeans, or ride my horse); well then I’m a goner! 😐

I prefer to stay away from medicine period, but if I can avoid the almost constant irritation, that would be amazing!

Yes, Acyclovir works for HSV, whether it’s 1 or 2. And I think you hit the nail on the head about stress. That’s a biggie. In fact, anything that puts more strain on your immune system (stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, being in the sun all day, etc.) can give more of an opening for herpes, so it’s that much more incentive to live as well as we can. Inner peace and overall health are quite necessary companions in this process. 😉

By the way, here’s an article about medication in general that could be helpful: https://www.herpesopportunity.com/post/herpes-medication

I didn’t realize that; I will definitely have to look into Acyclovir. I’m pretty good about eating healthy and getting enough sleep. I could be a little more active; some weeks I get to workout/do more than others. Decisions regarding my future is what stresses me out most..I’ll read that article too. Thanks 😊
