Acyclovir Side Effects
I have had HSV-2 for 8 years, with outbreaks occurring 4 times a year. I am currently in a long term relationship, fully disclosed sexual history - but I am resisting suppression therapy. In a previous relationship I tried this for a year and found the side effects to be horrible - confusion, anxiety, agitation, poor typing skills, eye-blinking and muscle flickering.
I want to avoid passing the virus to my partner, but I cannot live a happy life with the side effects of Accyclovir. I do experience these side effects when I take the medicine during an outbreak, but I can endure for one week every 3 months.
Anyone else experience the same? Any advice?
Thanks!
