Is Valtrex more effective than acyclovir? My doctor always writes the prescriptions as acyclovir. Do I have to take double the amount of acyclovir to be just as effective?

they work the same just you take acyclovir more often that's all. the only advantage to valtrex is you take it less often.

suppressive therapy with acyclovir is 400mg 2x/day.
