Valtrex® is an antiviral prescription medication used to treat the symptoms associated with oral herpes, genital herpes, and herpes zoster.[1] Valtrex® works by slowing the growth and spread of the virus, which in turn allows the body to fight off the infection. However, Valtrex® is not a cure for genital herpes, and does not prevent the spread of the herpes virus. Valtrex® is an FDA approved medication.
