Famvir is an antiviral medicine which is used to treat herpes breakouts.
The treatment works best when the virus is in its most active phase and symptoms occur.
Symptoms of a herpes breakout include:
When taken, the active ingredient of Famvir (famciclovir) is metabolised into penciclovir - an antiviral which inhibits the production of an enzyme which the virus uses to replicate and multiply.
By inhibiting the virus's ability to replicate, the immune system is able to fight the infection more effectively, bringing relief to the patient and pushing the virus back into remission.
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is a virus which is commonly associated with cold sores and is known as HSV-1. HSV-2 is the particular string of the virus which is associated with genital herpes.
The virus is transmitted through skin-to-skin contact, such as kissing, genital touching, oral sex and penetrative intercourse - vaginal and anal sex. The virus can also be spread when no symptoms are present.
Symptoms of herpes include:
There is currently no cure for herpes but there are various treatments to relieve the symptoms quickly and prevent the virus from spreading. Once a person is infected with herpes, the virus remains in their body.
The typical dose of Famvir is one 500 mg tablet taken three times daily for five to ten days. Always follow the doctors instructions. Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water.
All medications carry the risk of side effects. It's important to educate yourself on the side effects associated with your medication. Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medication.
Common side effects include:
Uncommon side effects include:
Not everyone who takes Famvir will experience side effects. If you are worried about any of the side effects listed above, or experience any side effect not listed here, speak to your doctor.
If you experience an allergic reaction to the medication, stop treatment immediately and seek medical attention.
