Re: Immune to valtrex
kierstyn - question, were you taking it suppressively, or just for the occasional outbreak? Are there any Long-term drug users (ha) out there who could weigh in on this? I was diagnosed in Sept. - my first outbreak was mild but there remained a constant itch. I went on suppressive Valtrex in October to about a week ago - because I was seeing someone - and it was working fine, no problems. I'm alone right now, so I thought I'd try to go longer than a month w/out medicine to see if my body could adjust, as people say you do with time (first year being the worst). But meanwhile, I wonder about the future - ie I would immediately go back on suppressive therapy to protect a partner to the best of my ability, but really, how long can you take the stuff?
