Alternatives to Valtrex/Acyclovir
I am curious about alternatives to Valtrex or Acyclovir for Suppressive Treatment. I hadn't considered suppressive treatment until recently when my outbreaks seem to be much more frequent, 1 a month. My outbreaks are very mild, but certainly a nuisance. Coincidentally, just when I need to take something to suppress outbreaks, I lose my insurance. I priced Valtrex at $135 a month, didn't know about Acyclovir until I read posts on this site. I would really like to take something more natural and less expensive. I started taking L Lysine 2 days ago, we'll see how that goes. Although I also just read a post here about a Sacks study that proved inconclusive, I do have a friend that does not have breakouts (or very few) now that she takes Lysine.
I just briefly ran across a few treatments sold on the internet that are all natural/herbal type things. ANYONE have any experience with any of these?
Viraway/Immune Builder (herbal remedy)
Viraderm (not natural, but an alternative)
