I find it very odd that nobody seems to talk about Famvir as much as they do Valtrex. I have tried Famvir before. Back when I was first diagnosed I was in the process of tracking my outbreaks because I wasn't sure what the frequency was going to be. I even kept a journal of my outbreaks because I wasn't sure exactly what they were supposed to feel like. Everybody always mentioned triggers prodromes and things of that nature and I had absolutely no idea how I was supposed to read my body.

While I was doing all this tracking I decided I was only going to treat my outbreaks as they happened. I did treat my outbreaks with Valtrex and then again with Famvir. I wanted to try them both and compare the two to see which one worked the best for me before making up my mind as to whether or not I would go on suppressive therapy.

Eventually I did wind up on suppression because I felt as though I were getting too many outbreaks and too often. I chose Valtrex over Famvir because it just felt like the outbreak would heal quicker. I wound up doing suppression for two years. It was the best thing I could ever do for myself AND for my partner. And now that mea and my partner are married we don't worry so much about him catching it from me and I am no longer on suppressive therapy.

Famvir and Valtrex both work very well. One isn't necessarily better than the other for episodic dosing. For the Valtrex you take 500 mg twice a day for three days for outbreaks. Famvir is 125 mg twice a day for five days for outbreaks.
