    Take l-lysine as soon as you feel the twinge of a cold sore coming on. 5000mg first day, 4000mg second day, 3000mg third day, 2000mg fourth day, 1000mg fifth day. Cold sore will be gone or minimal...

    I have had the burden of cold sores most of my life. I typically have outbreaks due to stress. I will take 2-4 1000 mg tablets on the onset daily. I will also use a leading (and unfortunately expensive) topical ointment. This will absolutely stop the virus in its tracks and the healing time is is cut to virtually a few days. As suggested I will definitely take Lysine daily for prevention.

    I take 2000MG Lysine every day and increase when I feel a cold sore coming on. I have been taking Lysine daily since my last cold sore outbreak on my lip and have been cold sore free for almost 2 years. I also use Zovirex when I first feel the tingle and increase Lysine and it seems to knock them out wonderfully!

    I have had cold sores all my life. I recently found "Orajel Single Dose" treatments that work wonders.... But they are expensive for just 2 treatments ($20) I use both within 24 hours because we all know THEY SUCK! I heard about Lysine from my co-worker and I reallllyyyyy hope it works. I bought the 1000 mg tablets. Wish me luck!

    I take 1000mg lysine 3x day at the first sign of a cold sore. Cold sore stops in its tracks and completely clears up within 1-2 days. Incredible results!
