I don't even read pm's unless they appear to be asking a question about deleting a post or how to use the forum. this is posted in the read before posting post on this forum.

if you are having monthly recurrences you should be on daily suppressive therapy. it works much better than treating ob's as they occur. if your insurance doesn't make valtrex affordable, switch to acyclovir.  typically  headaches get better after you've been on suppressive therapy for a week or two.

you need to take 400mg 2x/day every single day for suppressive therapy with acyclovir.  wasn't sure if that's how you were taking it or not.
