  • I take it as needed for ulcers on my lip. Just take them when I know I'll be exhausted to prevent any sores!

    Just as needed
    Herpes labialis
  • Need to take it within a couple hours of when I first feel a cold sore coming on. If I wait longer than that, it's usually too late and the cold sore ends up coming out anyway but I do believe taking it later still lessens the severity.

  • Works excellent at suppressing virus. If you miss a dose or drink heavily you may have an outbreak. I have taken for 15+ years. Very seldom get headache as side effect.

    Genital herpes
  • I have had Herpes Simplex I for over 50 years and not until I took Valacyclovir HCL was my condition ever in control. I have tried going off this medication and I immediately break-out. So now I am taking 1/2 of a 500 mg dose daily. This medication works for me, no side effects either.
  • Take daily dose in morning and have had no side effects.
