What is Valtrex?
Valtrex is an anti-viral treatment for genital herpes. It is used to relieve the immediate symptoms of an outbreak, such as water-filled blisters and red rashes that appear on and around the genital area. Valtrex also works as a preventive therapy, if a lower dosage is taken over a longer period to prevent future outbreaks.
Genital herpes is very contagious and can easily be transferred between partners during sexual intercourse. It should be treated early to reduce the spread of infection. Though Valtrex is not a cure for herpes, it can be used to control the herpes virus. When used daily, it can treat and remove the visible symptom of an outbreak.
Valtrex treatment for genital herpes is only available as prescription medication. Patients who want to treat genital herpes with Valtrex must first complete an online consultation, which is free. Our doctors will then decide whether you are suitable for treatment with Valtrex. This will depend on the medical and personal information you provide during the consultation. Based on this information, the doctor will make a decision whether you can be treated with Valtrex or not.
Valtrex effectively treats herpes virus and give you instant relief from its symptoms. Although genital herpes at the moment cannot be completely cured, Valtrex can be used to quickly remove the visible evidence and make the virus go back to a dormant and inactive state, preventing the herpes virus from spreading in the body. Among all treatments we offer for the treatment of genital herpes, Valtrex has been shown to be effective in patients aged 50 and older.
Valtrex contains the active ingredient valacyclovir hydrochloride. When this anti-viral medication enters the body, Valtrex is broken down to a different active ingredient, known as acyclovir. Acyclovir is fast acting and works to limit the spread of infected cells in the body and stops them from reproducing and spreading to healthy cells.

Valtrex tablets should be swallowed whole, either with meals or not. When you treat an outbreak, make sure you take all the tablets that you have been prescribed, even if symptoms disappear before the prescription is finished. Patients taking Valtrex as a preventative treatment should also stick to the recommended dosage, unless directed otherwise. You should supplement your treatment even if symptoms disappear.
