Sorry--what antiviral are you taking?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am taking Valtrex.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
So you were tested positive for herpes? How long have you been on the Valtrex?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I still did not do the test. The doctor prescribed me this medicine after he examined me. I have been taking this for 3 days now.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
OK--the usual dosage is for ten days. If the anal problems are from herpes, you should see relief of that in another two or three days
