[SIZE="2"]Hi, I had facial shingles in July (lasted 8 weeks!). My eye was really affected, but thanks to prompt treatment there's no corneal damage. However, I have an infection in the white (scleral) portion of the eye so I'm back on Valtrex 1000 mg. 2 x's a day, and a Prenizol eye drop. AFter 7 days on it, I'm noticing heart palpitations more each day (It's day 10 now). Has anyone taken this drug and if so, had any side effects? I also take Toprol and Diovan for High blood pressure and heart palpitations. I do have the palpitations off and on but not often so am wondering if it's due to this Valtrex.
