HSV2 Daily Supressive and Triggers
I was curious since I have been taking Valtex as a daily suppressive if the classic triggers would not reactivate the virus? Meaning, they say nuts are number 1. Before I was on the pills I am not sure if this was a trigger or not, think stress was my main one, coffee never did a thing. Now being on the pill I am scared to have anything with nuts in it and its driving me crazy worrying about what I eat. Will being on the pill stop these triggers?? I am on Valtrax 1 gram a day. Thanks.

most folks don't have any consistent triggers.  the vast majority of folks never have food triggers for genital herpes so no reason to think twice about eating ( other than a good healthy diet! ).  

suppressive therapy with valtrex reduces ob's and shedding significantly - it's why we recommend it :)  Really, be more surprised when you have recurrences on suppressive therapy, not be worrying about what might cause one :)

I have had the same wonders. I have been taking Valtrex as a suppressive therapy since August 2013 (when I was diagnosed) but my body seems resistant to it because I still get frequent outbreaks. My doctor seems to think there is something going on with my immune system, which has me completely freaked out. I think, maybe Valtrex doesn't work for everyone or maybe I just have a lot of the "outbreak triggers." I'm so frustrated. I just started taking L-LYSINE along with the Valtrex so hopefully that helps.
