    I have recently been diagnosed with herpes - both oral and genital (mostly likely HSV1, although this has not yet been confirmed by lab analysis). I took 2000mg of Valtrex on Tuesday afternoon, another 2000mg on Tuesday morning and have since continued taking the drug with a dosage of 500mg twice a day. It has been almost three days and my symptoms seem to be getting worse ie. new sites have appeared and previous, smaller areas of infection are spreading. Is this normal? At what point should I rule out Valtrex as an effective tool to manage outbreaks?

    Thank you
