Thank you for your response. I have a few more questions. Do you think its just as effective as valtrex? Also can you use it in conjunction with valtrex ? Or should it be used by itself?

Brief Answer: Yes, it has better result than valtrex. Detailed Answer: Hi I would like to tell you that monolaurin has lauric acid that is derived from coconut & coconut has gud results in curing herpes. So i would advise you to initially start with monolaurin. Next thing is it can be taken along with valtrex if you don't get any result with in one month because it is supplement drug. Hence its safe to take both together but monolaurin itself has good results.So first go for it. Consult physician for further information. Hope I answered your query Regards Dr. Neha Sumra
