Re: After taking first dose of meds...
Have you tried taking L-Lysine as a daily supplement to see if that helps with outbreaks? Other then that I would just continue to take the medication as you have been since there isn't anything you can really do other then hope the medicine kicks in, in time. I tend to self dose myself when I feel a tingle... I take 1000mgs for the first 2 days then drop back down to 500 for the next .. but you could ask your doctor if that would be beneficial for you.
