Patients with frequent recurrences of genital herpes were treated with oral acyclovir tablet, 800 mg once daily or once a week for 2 years. Confirmed recurrences for all patients were treated with acyclovir. 200 mg orally 5 limes per day, for five days. Of 58 patients enrolled, 12 of 26 daily acyclovir recipients and 22 of 32 weekly acyclovir recipients completed two years of study. Patients receiving daily acyclovir experienced a mean of 0.0991 recurrences / month compared with mean of 0.113 recurrences / month for patients receiving weekly acyclovir. A total of 33% of daily acyclovir recipients and 27% weekly acyclovir recipients were free of recurrences for two years.
