  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • have not had an episode for two years. acyclovir appears to control it. when I first contracted it in 2012, I had a break-out every two to three months. doctor told me it would take some time for my body to build up a resistance to the virus. I do not have herpes outbreaks anywhere else in my body- just my right eye. Although I have not had an episode in two years the doctor recommended I take 800mgs per day for the rest of my life. ( I am 64) A recent severe triple fracture of my left ankle requiring surgery and 8 screws and a titanium plate permanently placed in my ankle, has made me suspicious that acyclovir has affected my bone density. I had a bone density test in my mid 50's and the result was that I had very strong bones.
