Not necessarily: Whether we are considering herpes labialis (oral) or herpes genetalis (vagina or penis), the episodes might vary somewhat in symptoms or exact location . For example, an outbreak might or might not be visible, and might or might not be accompanied by symptoms, such as tingling or burning.

Possible withdrawal: Use of the drug alcohol (or prescription sedative drugs or sleeping pills) regularly will cause physical dependence. With regular use , "tolerance" develops (the same amount of the drug causes less of a direct effect) and when the amount of in the bloodstream decreases, "withdrawal" occurs (the body reacts to the absence of the drug). Episodes of panic/anxiety can be symptoms of withdrawal.

Speak to pharmacist: It all depends upon the medication and when it was dispensed. Take the medicine in the original package to your pharmacist for a definitive answer.
