Mylan Acyclovir 


Acyclovir belongs to the family of medications known as antivirals. Acyclovir is used to treat and prevent Genital Herpes. It is also used for the acute treatment of herpes zoster (Shingles) and varicella (Chickenpox). All these infections are caused by viruses. Acyclovir helps healing by stopping the virus from multiplying and spreading to nearby healthy cells.

Mylan Acyclovir may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Mylan Acyclovir may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Mylan Acyclovir may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Mylan Acyclovir 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 Mylan Acyclovir, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Mylan Acyclovir without consulting your doctor.

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

Mylan Acyclovir 


Genital herpes: The usual recommended adult dose for treating genital herpes is 200 mg every 4 hours, 5 times daily for 10 days. The usual recommended adult dose for preventing genital herpes infection from coming back (called suppressive therapy) varies but usually starts at 200 mg 3 times daily. You should start acyclovir as early as possible following the onset of signs and symptoms.

Shingles: The recommended dose for treating shingles is 800 mg every 4 hours, 5 times daily for 7 to 10 days. Treatment should be started within 48 hours of onset of the rash or lesions for maximum benefit, however it may be started as late as 72 hours after lesions begin to form.

Chickenpox: The recommended dose for chickenpox is based on body weight. The usual dose is 20 mg per kilogram of body weight (not to exceed 800 mg) 4 times daily for 5 days. Therapy should be started within 24 hours of onset of the rash.

Tablets should be swallowed whole, with water.  If you are using the suspension, the bottle should be shaken well before use. Use an oral syringe to measure each dose of the suspension, as it gives a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Many things can affect the dose of a 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.

It is important to take Mylan Acyclovir 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, 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 Mylan Acyclovir at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, 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.
