1. Sorry, valacylovir. Acyclovir comes in 400 mg and 200 and 800 mg.
2. Alcohol does not interfere with these medicines in any way, not at all. I laughed a little when I read that you have drunk alcohol every day since your diagnosis – I thought to myself, I’ve drunk wine every day since your diagnosis too! we are in the wine regions of New Zealand. Sorry, I know this isn’t funny.
3. People forget that when they have a close physical encounter with someone else (oral sex or intercourse) that there are other germs involved that they might have that you don’t – staph, strep – things like that. I think its a good idea to see your dentist but they may not have too many ideas – we shall see. Good thing to schedule that appointment.
