Well, I started to experience an outbreak and started taking Tagamet. I read somewhere that over the counter
Tagamet was helpful in suppressing herpes viruses, especially shingles. The outbreak went away but I discovered that I cannot take Tagamet with another medication I am required to take. After a week of no meds (acyclovir
or tagamet) I am breaking out again.
I started back on the acyclovir
and it seems to be working but I have some concerns.
