Valtrex Question
My upper lip is tingle, burning, and swollen.  I am worry about a herpe breakout, so I went to the doctor and got some Valtrex prescription.

About an hour after I took the 1GM Valtrex, the tingle and burning sensation is gone.  

Does Valtrex cure the syptoms that fast?

Thank you!

Sounds like a placebo effect.

For prodromal symptoms, it can take a couple of days for symptoms to abate. For outbreaks, about 4 days.
