Antiviral treatment is given out at some sexual health clinics. If you want more pills, is worth going back to find out if yours does. GPs can also issue prescriptions for genital herpes antiviral treatment. Read how the antiviral medication can be used.
Some people may choose to purchase antiviral medications via an online prescription/pharmacy service. There are various providers – this is one:
MedExpress is a registered internet pharmacy. It offers genital herpes antiviral treatment for patients who have been diagnosed with herpes simplex (genital herpes). Before you can place your order, the system will ask you a series of questions about you and your health and then, if your answers are satisfactory, you will be allowed to purchase.
MedExpress offers aciclovir and valaciclovir antiviral medication for the treatment of current or future outbreaks. Have it available and take it immediately when you feel the start of an outbreak.
Another way to use these antivirals is as a suppression: you buy a supply to take every day, like a ‘contraceptive pill for the virus’.
MedExpress charges £19.99 for a single course of aciclovir (15 x 400 mg tablets) and £49.99 for a suppression course of 3 months (168 x 400 mg tablets).
Their service is completely confidential and they offer discreet, next day delivery.
