How much of a difference does Valacyclovir make for herpes simplex symptoms and outbreaks? I haven't been taking it long enough to know but would like to know what to expect. I've only ever had 2 outbreaks before taking the medicine, both were about a week of flu like symptoms and 2 weeks of sores and painful urination.

    For me it took about two weeks, I take 1 mg daily. If i miss a dose or run out of my meds I’ll get a outbreak pretty quickly. As long as I take it t daily I get absolutely no symptoms it’s been a live saver for me.

    I have used it before. It was really effective for me. Me being diabetic, I get them super bad and out of control. This helps speed up the process and stop the lesions from spreading

    I was taking it regularly for awhile but it didn't seem like it was working all that great. I've tried more natural things like oregano oil and l-lysine. Both of those seemed to work okay. The oil of oregano in particular worked immediately after taking it. Hope this helps.

      with the oregano oil do you just put it on your outbreak ? Or do you take it before an outbreak occurs
