Re: Is Valtrex safe to take daily for supressive therapy?
Randy.. I, too am taking Valtrex for suppressive therapy, have been doing so since June when I found out I have HSV2. I've had no outbreaks either. I asked my doctors about long term effects, and my doctor seemed to only be concerned about my kidneys over a long period of time. He said to drink a lot of water daily with Valtrex..maybe even get used to drinking cranberry juice too (good for your kidneys I guess). Have you gone off the Valtrex yet? Have you had any outbreaks. I'm going to stay on this suppressive therapy for a year, but then see what happens when I go off. It's awfully nice to NOT have oubreaks though!
