Valtrex Vs Generic Valacyclovir

Goodbye little blue pill! My health insurance company would not approve my doc’s order of NO SUBSTITUTION concerning 500 mg Valtrex to treat my Herpes outbreaks. Can you believe it? It seems health insurance companies and pharmacies know better than the doc what is best for their patients.

For the first time in my adult life I have to settle for the Valtrex Generic 500 mg Valacyclovir by Mylan. It’s a little white pill with a M122 stamp. Honestly, I can’t afford to pay $300.00+ for a 30 day supply of Valtrex. It’s a good thing having Herpes isn’t an autoimmune situation or I’d be in the fight for my life with these all-knowing-trump-the-doc companies looking to squeeze a bang for every buck.

Back in the late 90s and early 2000s I think the most I ever paid for a month’s supply of 500 mg Valtrex was $30.00, not $300.00 – which is CRAZY!

I will give this generic blue-wanna-be Valtrex by Mylan a try. Hopefully it will be just as good as name-brand Valtrex.

In the meantime, I would be interested in any feedback you might have for me regarding Generic Valtrex.

P.S. I almost forgot – Yes, I still get outbreaks from time to time. Lately I have been second guessing myself wondering if I do in fact have a food aversion to almonds and walnuts, BUT I’m pretty sure my outbreak trigger is STRESS. Stress seems to get me every time.
