I might be borrowing trouble here, but picked up more Valtrex samples from my doc today and they'd only found enough for a week. Since I see him next week, I'd like to know of the best alternative, since I cannot afford the $270 or $370 a month it would cost if he weren't giving me samples. (I've been on it for 3 months and would hate to have the time go to waste....) I know Mikie is on Famvir and she likes that. And I saw somewhere else that Tagamet is actually an antiviral, or at least can be used as one. If you've had success with an antiviral, please let me know. If you haven't had luck with one, please let me know that too! Thanks!
