Aciclovir is an antiviral medication used in treating Herpes (Herpes simplex virus).
The aim of the treatment is not to cure herpes but to treat the symptoms faster and preventing the virus from spreading.
Aciclovir works by inhibiting a protein in the body which the virus uses to replicate itself and cause further infection. By limiting the virus' ability to multiply, the immune system can fight the infection more effectively and symptoms can be treated much faster.
Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection which is estimated to affect one in ten people in the UK.
There are two variations of the herpes simplex virus. HSV-1 and HSV-2. The latter of which is primarily associated with genital herpes.
Once a person is infected with herpes, the virus stays in their body. During acute infection, symptoms may appear. After this initial outbreak, future outbreaks tend to produce less severe symptoms.
Symptoms of genital herpes are:
The virus can be passed on through sexual contact or shared glassware and utensils.
Aciclovir is available in 400 mg tablets. These should be taken 5 times a day, spread apart by 4 hours. Take each tablet with a glass of water.
The tablets are taken over a course of 3 to 5 days, starting as soon as you notice symptoms of an outbreak.
If you miss a dose, do not take another tablet to compensate for the missed dose. Always follow the instruction of the doctor or pharmacist.
All medication carries the risk of side effects. It is important to read the patient information leaflet, which is enclosed in the packaging of your medication, before you begin treatment.
If you are at all concerned about any of the side effects associated with the treatment you are prescribed, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Side effects of Aciclovir include:
If you are worried or experience any of the above side effects, speak to your GP or pharmacist.
Do not take more Aciclovir than is recommended by a doctor.
If you experience an allergic reaction which you believe was attributed to the medication you were prescribed, stop taking Aciclovir immediately and speak to your doctor.
