Valtrex is an antiviral drug which used to treat certain herpes infections, including herpes zoster (the painful rash known as shingles), genital herpes, and herpes cold sores on the face and lips. Valtrex stops viral replication and combats the herpes virus attacking it and slowing it down from replicating itself in the system allowing the body to assist in the natural defense of the spread of this virus ultimately limiting both the duration and frequency of outbreaks. Valtrex will not cure herpes, it just lessen the symptoms of the infection.
Dosage and direction
Consult with your doctor before using. Use no more than was prescribed. Take it orally with or without food every 8 hours ( 3 times a day) during one week. If you have a genital herpes take it twice daily for 5 days. For treatment of cold sores, this drug is usually taken only for one day. For best result start treatment as soon as possible after your symptoms start.

I’ve been suffering a few years from herpes, and I must say it is so irritating. But after I started to take Valtrex, everything changed. I think this is the best medicine against the herpes virus now. Thanks for your quick delivery!
joseph mallia (14-Jan-2020)
As I know, Valtrex 500 mg is taken for the prevention of herpes. I suffered from recurrences, and I prefer to take a 1000 mg dosage, and my doctor prescribed. Now the situation is much better. Valtrex almost stopped the herpes infection.

Ross Carter (09-Jan-2020)
For the prevention of herpes my doctor prescribed the dosage of 500 mg, but when I have herpes recurrence, I take 1000 mg pills. In general, the dosage depends on the kind of the herpes that you have. Valtrex is my favorite medicine, and it helps better than others.

Gerdas Grytė (02-Jan-2020)
I ‘ve been suffering from the herpes of the second type for more than 10 years. When I have herpes, I take 1000 mg of Valtrex twice a day. Or 4 pills of 500 mg each, and that is enough to stop the development of the infection. That is just excellent!!! I usually buy Valtrex 1000 mg. But when I have herpes virus, I avoid eating nuts, chocolate, coffee and alcohol…

Stuart Robertshaw (18-Dec-2019)
My doctor recommends to split a 500 mg pill into 2 parts and to take 250 mg twice a day for herpes prevention. He said this regimen is for those who have recurrence of herpes more than 8 times per year. The effect of Valtrex is quite positive. Now I almost forgot that I had such a bad infection before.
mariacarmela campisi (18-Dec-2019)
I also take Valtrex as nothing else helps… I should say this is the most effective thing I’ve ever taken to avoid a herpes virus. I take it also as a prevention measure. Thanks for on-time delivery!!!

florentino salnz sainz (11-Dec-2019)

Christian MAUCONDUIT (07-Dec-2019)
My sister and I usually take 1000mg of Valtrex, as we have frequent cases of recurrence. My doctor said that Valtrex 1000 would be an optimal dose for me. Sometimes I can take 2 pills of 500 mg. That’s very good that we have such medicine as Valtrex, which comes for helps when you feel awkward with herpes on your lips.
Arnaud Humbert (07-Dec-2019)
For me, Valtrex has become a real salvation. All creams had no effect. My dermatologist advised to take Valtrex, and I forgot about the herpes problem. Whenever I have all herpes symptoms – I take a pill of 1000 mg, or 2 pills of 500 mg each, and in 12 hours and take another 1000 mg, and that is all!!!
Douglas Darling (06-Dec-2019)

Ricardo Reyes (05-Dec-2019)
I was not sure about the dosage, and I started from 250 mg, but then increased to 500 mg which is normal for me. I usually had herpes on face and lips. In case I have the symptoms of herpes, I start taking Valtrex, and the infection completely disappears on the second or on the third day. Very effective pills!
GIANCARLO GNOATO (05-Dec-2019)
I do my best to reinforce my immune system. But still I have to take Valtrex to kill herpes infection. This is a really good and effective medicine. I order it online on the site, and it helps me a lot!!!
Gines Moreno garcía (03-Dec-2019)
I suffered from relapses of herpes 10-12 times a year. My doctor says I should take Valtrex 500 mg two times a day in cases of exacerbation, and 500 mg daily for prevention. After I started taking Valtrex, the number of relapses decreased to 3-4 cases in a mild form.
Denis Sepertino (03-Dec-2019)

johan debeck (03-Dec-2019)
Valtrex treats all kinds of herpes very well! I bought other pills to cure herpes before as I wanted to save money, but because none of them helped, I ordered Valtrex online and got it delivered very fast by the online company. I must say that Valtrex is the only medical product that helped very quickly. Now I am taking it to prevent the recurrence of herpes.
Charles Wigglesworth (02-Dec-2019)
I ordered Valtrex on the site for my son. It helped to treat herpes on his hand. He had very severe pain, and after taking Valtrex, he got rid of herpes. I hope he won’t have it again.
