    Hi everyone. Tomorrow I am finishing my first course of Valtrex (500mg twice a day for 5 days) and I am now looking at alternative therapies. I believe some people have had some success with Olive Leaf Extract and L-Lysine so I'm planning to give them a shot. Can anyone let me know if I can take both supplements at the same time? Can these also be taken with Valtrex (assuming I have another outbreak again?). Thanks.

    I take all three together... I told my Dr. and he didn't see an issue with this although he did say there was no medical research to support the effectiveness of Olive Leaf or Lysine. But he said if I think it helps then I should take it. I figure I'll do anything to eliminate OBs!

    Thanks Hopefilled. Which brands are you taking and how many milligrams of active ingredient are there in each tablet (both Olive Leaf and L-Lysine)?

    I take lysine and olive leaf extract. I read somewhere not to take them at the same time. So I take the olive leaf in the morning and the lysine at night.
