Acyclovir (Generic Zovirax)

Zovirax was approved by the FDA in 2003 as the main oral medication for cold sores treatment. Zovirax decreases symptoms associated with cold sores and oral herpes, and assists in controlling future outbreaks so herpes will not interfere with your normal life. Zovirax also takes preventative measures and it stops the spread of oral herpes to other parts of your body. Zovirax also combats the psychological effects associated with oral herpes by relieving feelings of stress, nervousness, and anxiety. Soon after Zovirax hit the market, its generic counterpart, Acyclovir also hit the shelves as a cheaper oral herpes treatment. Chemically identical, Acyclovir is an effective cold sore treatment and the treatment of genital herpes, cold sores, and chicken pox.

How do I know if Acyclovir (Generic Zovirax) is right for me?

If you suffer from herpes simplex virus 1 and 2, than Acyclovir oral herpes treatment is right for you. Symptoms of oral herpes infection include water blisters located in the mucous membranes in the mouth, which heal as a scab. Individuals who suffer from oral herpes will find, after the primary infection that they will suffer from recurrent outbreaks – the oral herpes virus becomes active once again and replicates and spreads. Though there is no cold sore cures available, Acyclovir oral medication greatly decreases the likelihood of an outbreak or spreading oral herpes to another individual.

How does Acyclovir (Generic Zovirax) work?

Acyclovir is an antiviral medication. As a synthetic nucleoside analogue, it is active against outbreaks of the oral herpes virus. Generic Zovirax is a recommended cold sores treatment because it converts itself into an active form of the herpes simplex virus. This active form is used by the virus rather than the nucleoside regularly used to create new DNA to reproduce the virus. Cells that are infected with the herpes simplex virus absorb Acyclovir, extending the antiviral activity.

What dose should I be taking? How do I administer Acyclovir (Generic Zovirax)?

Acyclovir oral herpes treatment is prescribed in 400mg and 800mg tablets to be taken on a daily basis right after the appearance of cold sore symptoms. Skip any missed doses and take Acyclovir at the next scheduled time – do not take a double dose of Generic Zovirax. It can be taken with or without food, but taking it with food can decrease nausea. Drink a lot of water while taking Acyclovir to maintain normal working function of your kidneys.

What possible side effects should I look out for?

Common side effects include:

  • Swelling in the feet or hands
  • Headache
  • Lightheadedness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach pains and vomiting

Call for immediate medical attention if you suffer from any of the following side effects:

  • Unusual weakness
  • Easy bleeding or bruising
  • Infrequent urination
  • Lower back pain

Can other medications I'm taking be mixed with Acyclovir (Generic Zovirax)?

  • I seriously don't know what I would do without PreferredrugStore. It's amazing to me that some people still buy their medications from old-fashioned drugstores. Don't they realize how much money they're wasting?

  • As a not very computer savvy old man, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy-to-navigate PreferredrugStore was. Within ten minutes I had browsed the site, chosen my medications, and checked out. When my son suggested that I should buy generic Prilosec online, I seriously had worried that it would take all day to figure it out. Ten minutes…not bad!
