Can I cut my acyclovir in half?
I have been taking acyclovir 800 MG a day for years. I've had herpes for 12 years and I get outbreaks every  12-18 months. In reading some posts I see that taking it once a day may not be that effective for suppression. Can I just split the pills and start taking half twice a day? Or should I get a new script for 400 2x/day?

Hi, taking acyclovir for herpes recommended dosage as below per the "updated herpes handbook" by terri warren:
First time outbreaks--400 mg three times a day for 7-10 days.
Recurrences--400 mg three times a day for 5 days or 800 mg three times a day for two day.
Suppression--400 mg twice a day every day.
