Overview

Taking antiviral medication for Cold Sores can prevent a full-on outbreak and reduce transmission to loved ones. Cold sores are blisters that form around the exterior lips or inside the mouth, caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus. Anytime a single cold sore appears it is considered an outbreak, although outbreaks commonly produce multiple sores. Cold sores cause mild discomfort to extreme physical pain. Their severity usually depends on how many previous outbreaks have occurred, as well as how quickly an antiviral (Valacyclovir or Acyclovir) is administered. Keeping meds on hand means you take what you need, when you need it. Privately message a wisp doctor to adjust your prescription anytime and start living outbreak-free.

How (quickly) do these pills work?

Valacyclovir (aka Valtrex) & Acyclovir (aka Zovirax and Sitavig) are the most effective drugs on the market today for treating herpes outbreaks.

Both medications are considered equally effective for preventing outbreaks & the spread of Herpes Simplex 1 & 2 to sexual partners. The most important thing for preventing an outbreak is beginning treatment within 48 hours of feeling the first symptoms in the area you're treating (itchiness, tingling, burning, pain). The quicker you take valacyclovir or acyclovir, the less likely (if at all) you are to experience an outbreak.

Is there a daily medication I can just take that prevents outbreaks?

Yes! You can take this medication two ways: 1) Just when you feel an outbreak coming (episodic), which is a 5-day treatment that speeds up recovery and reduces the severity and length of the outbreak but does not reduce your risk of getting an outbreak nor spreading the virus to your partners, or 2) Everyday (suppressive), which can reduce your risk of an outbreak by at least 70-80%, and reduce your risk of spreading the virus to sexual partners down to 1% of the time.

Do you require a herpes test for treatment?

No, our doctors will be able view your information and discuss your symptoms with you. Herpes testing is an antibody test and many patients experiencing first outbreaks will not test positive. Most physician (in-person and through telemedicine) do not require a positive test for treatment.

How fast can I get medication?

Our doctors typically review your medical information within 1-2 hours! If medication is considered safe and appropriate, your prescription will be sent out for delivery or called-in to a local pharmacy for same-day pickup.

If you select same-day pharmacy pickup, there may be an additional copay, but you can use your free wispcount card to get the lowest price possible.
