I have HSV, so herpes are inevitable, so I figured it would be convenient to have this on hand. My doctor told me to take 2 tablets 4 times a day for 5 days, but I'm reading on here that people are taking different doses. So I was wondering if it mattered all that much, and also, my prescription says to not skip or discontinue doses, does that mean if I took two tablets, and then the cold sore disappeares, I shouldn't discontinue use? Because I don't want to waste these pills.
Thanks for the help!
