Hi all-
Dentist prescribed me 1000mg of Valtrex after cold sore began forming on my lip today (small blisters appeared this morning.) I know this is best taken prior to symptoms showing, but this formed while I slept.
Anway, it was prescribed with the instructions to take once a day, however, I am reading that many people take 2000 mg doses twice a day for the first day for maximum effectiveness. Can I double my next dosage, or should I stick to one pill a day? Hoping to speed up healing time as much as possible. TY!
