I too thought high dose (500mg or 1000mg) L-Lysine was the best thing since - well, since having no cold sores. But after a year or so of taking it I am experiencing the worst breakout of cold sores - I'm talking one after the other, sometimes three at a time in different areas - since my late teens. I will finish my current bottle of L-Lysine but I won't re-purchase. It's back to tea tree oil and my tried and trusted Lipzor, which zaps the cold sore and stops it in its tracks. I'm getting new batteries for mine tomorrow and then I'll be a happy bunny.
