"38 weeks and anxious, using Valtrex, Vit C and Colloidal Silver"
   I'm 38 weeks pregnant today. I've been on 500mg daily of Valtrex for over a week now. I'm also taking 10,000 mg of Vitamin C. My mother in law made me colloidal silver spray and I've just started using that topically this morning.

I've been reading on this forum that 1,000mg or more is typical for Valtrex. Wonder why my doc only Rx 500mg once a day. I'm going to ask him Monday to increase it. I'm a little nervous that he won't and I only have a 30 day Rx so if I double up myself then I will run out before my due date and be stuck.

Stress is a very real trigger for me so I'm hoping he will up the dosage.

Has anyone else used colloidal silver spray or Vitamin C in larger doses to prevent an outbreak? What was your outcome?

and I am assuming that it's a moot point now. I trust that all went well.

Regarding Valtrex dose... In patients with a history of 9 or fewer recurrences per year, an alternative dose is 500 mg once daily.

Colloidal silver is a scam. Vitamin C is OK, but it's not a significant preventative of herpes OBs.
