    Medication triggered virus?

    I contracted herpes about 30 years ago and haven't had an outbreak in several years. I haven't been sexually active in a few years. Recently my dr started me on gabapentin and I had a sudden outbreak. Also a canker sore on my tongue in the same spot I had a monster one a few years ago that actually resulted in being hospitalized for 3 days. I know gabapentin is prescribed to treat herpes zoster pain, but can it actually trigger dormant virus in your body?

    Hi Sorry could not find any info to your problem, try a sexual health/GUM clinic and see if they have any idea for this happening, its there field of work so they just might have an answer.
