We study 15,377 people who have side effects while taking Valtrex from FDA and social media. Find out below who they are, when they have Mastocytosis and more.
Valtrex (latest outcomes from 16,423 users) has active ingredients of valacyclovir hydrochloride. It is often used in genital herpes.
Mastocytosis (an excessive number of apparently normal mast cells in the skin and, occasionally, in other organs) (latest reports from 1,404 patients) has been reported by people with multiple myeloma, osteoporosis, bipolar disorder, quit smoking, psychotic disorder.

From this study (3 weeks ago):
My husband has been out of town working for 2 months until 2 weeks ago. We had sex on the 28th when he got home & just about everyday thereafter until now. I miscarried a few months ago & my cycles changed obviously but keeping with the dates they have turned into I should have,worse case scenario of 31 day cycle instead of 28, started on the 4th. I am having cramps here & there, just still no period. Now, how this is relevant to Valtrex: I broke out w a cold sore & dr gave me valtrex on June 4th (my expected 31 day cycle start date). I took 2 that day, 3 on the following 2 days, they didnt seem to be helping to make cold sores go away so I stopped taking them. That is 4 days without any valtrex so is it possible I have fallen pregnant again with wacky ovulating/ period schedule or could this all be due to valtrex? If pregnancy is an option (i know is always an option when not using protection) how much longer should I wait to test since the first time we had sex was the 28th, only 2 weeks ago tomorrow? Thanks
From this study (2 months ago):
Recurrent shingles for last 1-2 years with them now coming almost as soon as I am off the 7 days 3000 gram course. Two weeks ago during the 5th day of the 3000 per day, I awoke and the muscles of my lower extremities were so tight and rigid I could hardly bend to move. Painful to get around, could bend. Joints stiff, but it the muscles, WOWEE.. took 5 days to gradually go away. During this, I had gone to 500 2x a day of Valtrex and the shingles were back in 3 days. Nose gets stuffy, extreme itch that 3 benadryl can't touch, and of course tingle and burn. Always in my hair, forehead and sometimes on bridge of nose. I had to start another round of 3000 gram/day. Today is my last day of one week of 500 2x day, and will go to 500 1x day. I itch, tingle, sore, ache and have a few bumps but nothing that has actually popped out YET. This weekend we will see. I have been doing this since 2013.
They started out every couple months, now perpetual.
From this study (2 months ago):
Pinpoint red marks, that really don't look like bruises, occur on lower arms or upper chest spontaneously, without known provocation, usually when I awake in morning. I am a quiet, right side sleeper who moves very little. Two days ago, for the first time ever,3, very prominent 1 inch red marks appeared under the skin on my left arm, which is not the arm that is under me when I sleep. These spots can take a week or so to fade. The spots on chest may be precipitated by the way I sometimes lay on my small pendant on a chain when I am sleeping.
Have checked all meds for interactions and Valtrex is the only one that indicated some users get pinpoint red marks under the skin. These marks occur at various times and not in any pattern.
