Our expert says:
Acyclovir is quite reliable to curtail attacks of herpes. There are other agents, but they are all similar and would be equally expensive. I don't know whether there is a generic for Acyclovir which might be cheaper. You can find out from your pharmacy. You would need a prescription for any of these.
