Phl Valacyclovir How to Take

How does Phl Valacyclovir work? What will it do for me?

Valacyclovir belongs to the class of medications known as antivirals. It is used to treat a viral infection affecting the skin known as Shingles (herpes zoster). It is also used to treat Cold Sores, and to treat and prevent recurrences of Genital Herpes. It works by interfering with the way the virus reproduces. Valacyclovir works by stopping the virus from multiplying and spreading to nearby healthy cells.

It does not cure shingles, cold sores, or genital herpes, but it does help the sores to heal more quickly, and it relieves pain and discomfort. When used to prevent recurrences of herpes, it also reduces the risk of transmission (spreading) of the infection to others.

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

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

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

Phl Valacyclovir Dosage

The recommended adult dose of valacyclovir to treat shingles is 1,000 mg 3 times daily for 7 days. The treatment should be started within 72 hours of the onset of the rash.

To treat the first episode of genital herpes, the dose of valacyclovir is 1,000 mg twice daily for 10 days. Treatment should be started within 72 hours of the onset of symptoms, and ideally within 48 hours for best effectiveness.

To treat recurrent genital herpes, the dose of valacyclovir is 500 mg twice daily for 3 days. The treatment should be started at the first sign or symptom of recurrence.

To prevent recurrences of genital herpes, the recommended dose is 1,000 mg once daily. For people with a history of 9 or fewer recurrences per year, the recommended dosage of valacyclovir is 500 mg orally once daily. This dose helps to reduce the risk of transmitting genital herpes to others.

To treat cold sores, the usual dose of valacyclovir is 2,000 mg at the first sign of symptoms, followed by another 2,000 mg 12 hours later. The treatment should be started at the first sign of a cold sore (tingling, itching, or burning sensations) for best effectiveness.

Safer sex: Valacyclovir, when taken in appropriate doses each day, can reduce the risk of passing genital herpes to sexual partners. It should be used in combination with safer sex practices such as using condoms and dental dams. If you have any questions about practicing safer sex, speak to your doctor.

Systemic infection: The safety and effectiveness of using valacyclovir to treat herpes zoster infection that is inside the body has not been established. This is not an accepted use for Phl Valacyclovir.
