Valtrex Long Term

I was wondering if anyone here has been on Valtrex for suppression therapy for a long time. I am considering it possibly as something I would do for my boyfriend when he comes home from Iraq (if he stays with me). Thing is, I enjoy having my liver in tip top shape and was wondering if anyone knew of any kind of negative long term effects that this drug may have on people.

Re: Valtrex Long Term

I've been on Valtrex for 5 years and have not noticed any side effects with suppression therapy. I have had headaches when I use it for outbreak treatment (3 tablets a day for 3 days). I have had 3 physicals during the last 5 years and all bloodwork has been perfect (with the exception of HSV2) - liver, kidneys, urinary, immune, etc. I eat well, take nutritional supplements and exercise so I'm sure that is what keeps my body healthy. The only thing you can do is try it out for yourself and see how it works for you. I would be curious to hear from someone who has been on it for longer than I have...
