Valtrex is one of those medications where you’re generally going to find that it’s not going to have an affect one way or another on your life insurance application. Which means that even if you’re currently suffering from an “outbreak”, you should still potentially be eligible for a Preferred or Preferred Plus rate class (provided you would otherwise still qualify).
This is mainly because Valtrex is a medication that is used to treat pretty common conditions which, in general, are not “life threatening”.
Valtrex (valacyclovir) is a prescription antiviral medication that is used to treat infections casued by certain types of viruses. Common conditions in which it is used to treat would include: shingles, cold sores, genital herpes as well as chickenpox which incidentally, are all believed to be cause by the herpes virus.
Now a word of caution…
While it is true that taking Valtrex shouldn’t affect your life insurance application, nor should having a herpes “flare up”, it should be noted that many of the “hypothesized” causes that can lead to a “flare up” are also triggers that could potentially lead to a less than ideal life insurance medical exam result.
- Reduce stress.
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Reduce alcohol intake.
- Refrain from smoking.
- Reduce sugar intake.
- Monitor your diet.
Reducing each of these stressors have also been shown to improve the result of one’s life insurance application medical exam, one can theorize that if you’re currently experiencing a flare up, now may not be the most ideal time to also apply for a life insurance policy that will require a medical exam.
But don’t delay…
Since every day that you go without life insurance is another day that you’re putting your family at risk, it’s important to NOT DELAY.
Which means that what you’ll want to do is either apply for a life insurance policy that won’t require a medical exam or…
Simply apply for a life insurance policy and schedule the exam for a week or two down the line so that you can get your body prepared to “ace” your exam.
