Act Famciclovir 

Indication

Famciclovir belongs to the family of medications known as antivirals.It is used to treat Genital Herpes and prevent recurring episodes of genital herpes. It is also used to treat Shingles(a painful rash caused by some herpes viruses, also known as herpes zoster).

People infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, may also be prescribed famciclovir to treat mucocutaneous herpes (herpes simplex outbreaks around the lips and mouth).

These infections are caused by viruses. Famciclovir prevents the virus from making DNA and copying itself, and so leads to lower levels of virus in the blood. It helps to prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading to nearby healthy cells, which helps healing.Act Famciclovir may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms.Any specific brand name of Act Famciclovir may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Act Famciclovir may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Act Famciclovir for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Act Famciclovir, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Act Famciclovir without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Act Famciclovir to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Act Famciclovir if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Act Famciclovir 

Dosage

To treat shingles, the recommended adult dose of famciclovir is 500 mg taken 3 times daily for 7 days. Treatment is started within 72 hours of the onset of the rash.

To treat genital herpes, the recommended adult dose is 125 mg taken twice a day for 5 days. Start treatment during the prodromal period (the period during which early symptoms warn of a herpes flare-up) or as soon as you notice lesions.

To prevent recurrent episodes of genital herpes, the recommended dose is 250 mg taken twice a day for up to 1 year.

To treat mucocutaneous herpes, the recommended dose is 500 mg taken twice a day for 7 days.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

The tablets should be swallowed whole and may be taken with or without food. Famciclovir must be taken for the recommended duration of treatment, even if you are feeling better. This will help prevent the episode from flaring up and returning.

It is important to take Act Famciclovir exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose (within 1 hour), skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Act Famciclovir at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
