How do I take SimpleHealth’s prescription cold sore treatment?

Last updated on December 8, 2020

  • Two 1g tablets twice daily for one day, taken 12 hours apart
  • With meals or on an empty stomach
  • For recurrent outbreaks of cold sores, valacyclovir works best if it is used within 24 hours after the symptoms begin to appear. It may not be as effective if treatment is delayed.
