Valtrex - Cold Sore Medication Review

Do you suffer from cold sores? If so, then you certainly want a medicine that can shorten their duration for sure. Well, does Valtrex cold sore medication help in this regard? Here's a review to give you some answers.

As a cold sore remedy, Valtrex by Glaxo Smith Kline may well be one of the better medications available. Valtrex is the actual brand name for Valacyclovir Hydrochloride. It comes in pill form to treat herpes, herpes simplex or cold sores, in addition to shingles and chicken pox.

While it is true that Valtrex is one of the best as a cold sore remedy, it is not cheap. A 500 mg pill will cost approximately $6.00 each, while a 1000 mg pill will run $10.00 each. Taking four of the 1000 mg pills will cost you $40, but if you are suffering from a cold sore, I consider it money well spent.

I have a friend who suffers from several bouts with cold sores throughout the year. He has tried every cold sore remedy, cold sore medication, and every other home remedy for cold sores. Nothing has worked for him like Valtrex.

He starting taking Valtrex just as the instructions say to do, at the first sign of a tingling sensation. He took two 1000 mg pills twice a day for one day. The cold sore went away without ever breaking out. it never broke the surface. This was amazing.

If you suffer from cold sores, then you know that when they break out you're looking at 10-14 days of an ugly, painful cold sore. If you're taking Valtrex this won't happen. Compared to any over-the-counter cold sore remedy, there is no question about which is the best.

The key for any cold sore medication to work is catching the sore before it breaks through the surface of your skin. Once it breaks out there is no cold sore remedy that will eliminate it in a day or two, Valtrex included. But if you take Valtrex before this happens, then it will flat out eliminate it immediately.

For anyone who has cold sores and has been looking for a medicine that works, talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about Valtrex. It may be the cold sore remedy you're looking for.
