I have had this prescribed before for cold sores, usually 20 or 30 pills, today my doc called me in two 1 gram pills. I don't feel like it's enough. I took the first one about an hour after my first symptom and it says to take 2 in 1 day. I don't think it's going to make it better. Anyone else have this problem?
What, the problem you don't believe docs? For cold sores in people who are not immuno compromised The dose is 2 capsules, in one day, 12 hrs apart..
