Valacyclovir is an antiviral suppressive approved by the FDA to treat Herpes Simplex, also known as HSV-1.
By blocking the virus' polymerase enzyme, we are able to stop the HSV-1 virus from building DNA and replicating itself inside of you. This reduces the severity of your cold sore flare ups as well as the ability for the virus to transfer between folks.
Though this antiviral drug can be prescribed for Genital Herpes, our treatment plan is intended only for Oral Herpes, HSV-1.
