There is also a woman in http://www.herpes-coldsores.com who took valtrex for years and had no problem. Pls search for I do not keep track of website due to the torment of tons of information to read daily after I got Herpes.
Maybe you are toxic or have food allergies , so you still have a lot of outbreaks. Valtrex stops the Herpes from full blown outbreak, so I still take valtrex as to work and function daily.
It is God's love to us that valtrex generally is well tolerated among a lot of people. The side effect experienced is rare and less frequent when compared with other drugs treating other illness. This makes my heart melt at the Lord's mercy.
Also, your current diet and your diet since a baby counts whether your liver can tolerate drugs or not. Diet without milk, wheat, butter, cheese, beef, shellfish, peanut, gluten, eggs, desert since baby will lead to a healthy liver and less blood pressure problem. This diet is hard for caucasian but not for some southern Chinese (Cantonese ) who live around the sea area that their diet after weaning is rice, fish, chicken and vegetables. They think the smell of beef is strong and won't eat so much beef. However, this group of Chinese have seniors generally live the longest among all the Chinese----90's to 100's. No stroke, diabetes, liver problem among this group at old age. My own grandfather died 15 years ago at 90 year old, and due to a fall with head hitting ground first on the street of Chinatown San Francisco. He was healthy and even told us to always go hiking as to breath the fresh air. Besides, their way of cooking is boil and steam. Still remember eating a steam rock cod in a Chinese restaurant? Even grilled is considered carcinogens by this group of Chinese.
Now, I am at home watching T.V. a lot, and am so scare of the way that most Caucasian food is blend with milk and cheese, and even the sauce. Every food has its' natural flavor, so Chinese will not put milk and cheese in sauce. Also, the desert that the caucasian made is scary that a whole cup of Sugar is added in it, Chinese only make deserts with spoonful of sugar, not a whole cup for carmelizing or baking a desert. ( Well, Chinese food has other problems, e.g. m.s.g., sodium in soy sauce and chemicals in all kinds of bottle sauce. )
I plan to take valtrex for one and a half year for the benefit outweight the side effect of liver damage. For a healthy Chinese, it took him 30 years for the liver to turn to liver cancer even if he has hepatitis B, so I am taking a bet to take valtrex and will have liver function test yearly.
I can't even work if I don't take valtrex. Hopefully by that time Tarvacin or any drug cure Herpes is successful. Also,, I guess I will tell you my secret of fearless taking valtrex. I told God I will be your servant, pls let me live longer to fulfil your mission on me before death strike me. Daily I need to show an example to love you with all my heart, my soul, my strength and to love others as I love myself. Afterall, I am a living dead daily that I can't even drink orange juice, can't even sleep well and work well. I have nothing to lose by even keeping my thoughts clean and loving---and to be a servant of the Lord. Choose your mission field, be it in local ghetto in USA or as bold as Palestine.
Also, search on death, near death experience will make you more prepare of death. Eventually, we will die and it is a natural process that we have to rely on people to help us to walk the last journey. Now, I am searching if there is pain at the last two weeks of death, for some Christians observed that some patients had not much pain at last moment due to God's mercy. Just do what is pleasing to the Lord, research, take care of yourself, and pour your heart to the Lord for questions, He will answer.
