In brief: Valtrex (valacyclovir) effective
Valtrex (valacyclovir) can be used to suppress or reduce symptoms of herpetic outbreaks.
Oral lesions(cold sores, being the most common) can resolve quickly by taking of valtex at the first indication(tingling). This is a one day dosage 4tab 12 hr apart. Genital herpes is normally given a longer suppressive dose to minimize lesions. See you dentist, dermatologist, or ob/gyn.
