Valtrex - Do you only take the medicine for one day? Or do you need to continue until symptoms are?
Added 22 Apr 2014:
The bottle says take 2 pills twice a day for one day. But it is weird to me you only take it for one day when I still have new symptoms…that is why I asked. Thanks for your help and advice. Just wondering if this is the norm?
You need to take it as directed. Sometimes the instruction are given for halting a break out and sometimes the instructions are for taking it prophylactically to prevent break outs. There are pros and cons for each way but your Dr will know which method is best for you to follow depending on your general over all health and the pattern of your breakouts.
