Valaciclovir, sometimes spelt valacyclovir, is an antiviral medication used to treat viruses including shingles and herpes.
The medicine is also available under the brand name Valtrex from our UK pharmacy.
You can order valaciclovir tablets for herpes from Prescription Doctor. To get started, simply press the green button above and fill out our medical form.
The herpes virus is transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. The virus can be transmitted through kissing, touching the genitals, sexual intercourse and sharing glassware or dining utensils with infected persons.
While herpes can be transmitted when in its dormant state, the virus is more infectious when active and symptoms are present.
Symptoms of herpes include:
Once a person is infected with herpes, the virus remains in the body for the rest of your life.
The herpes virus may reactivate, causing unpleasant symptoms to develop. It is when these symptoms develop that the virus becomes transmissible.
While there is no cure, there are treatments which help the body's immune system suppress the virus back into remission.
When you purchase valaciclovir tablets from Prescription Doctor, our prescribing doctor will ensure they are safe for you.
If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, our UK pharmacy can dispatch your order the same day via a fast and discreet next-day delivery.
Valaciclovir (valacyclovir) is converted into the active form aciclovir inside the body. It works by inhibiting the enzyme the virus needs to grow and multiply in the body's cells.
This helps the body's immune system fight the virus infection back into remission.
You should start to feel relief from symptoms in just two or three days of taking valaciclovir.
You may be prescribed to take valaciclovir for between 5 and 10 days. It's important that you follow the doctor's instructions.
