Need answers?

Does valacyclovir work for cold sores?
Yes, valacyclovir is a popular treatment for cold sores. While it is more advantageous to take it as soon as you have symptoms, it can be used at any stage. People prefer valacyclovir because it stays in your body longer than other antiviral medications, therefore you need to take less every day.
Will these medications cure my cold sores?
There is no cure for cold sores. The virus that causes cold sores lives inside the body for life. For those with no symptoms, they may never know they have it, putting others at risk. Valacyclovir is a great medicine to manage your cold sores.
Is valacyclovir a good fit for everyone?
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to medication. Your provider will help you understand the best medication for your cold sores based on your medical history and current needs.
What dosage of valacyclovir is right for me?
Depending on your medical history, your Admired provider will decide what dosage is right for you.
