    What is Aciclovir?

    Aciclovir is an antiviral medicine commonly used to treat Genital Herpes in adults. It is generally considered very effective and is best taken as soon as your symptoms first start to appear.

    How do you take Aciclovir?

    The Aciclovir pill is taken at a dose of one 400mg tablet THREE times a day for FIVE days. Space the doses evenly throughout the day and keep taking this medicine until the course is finished, unless you are told to stop.

    Are there treatments other than Aciclovir for Genital Herpes?

    There are other antiviral medication that can be taken to treat genital herpes such as Valaciclovir. Valaciclovir is converted to Aciclovir in the body and can be taken less frequently. However a dose of Aciclovir has the advantage in that it is a more cost-effective viral infection treatment and both are as effective as one another for treating genital herpes.

    What are the side effects of Aciclovir?

    Like all antiviral medication, this has the potential of causing unwanted side effects, although not all individuals will experience these.

    Some of the side effects include:

    • Dizziness and Headaches
    • Diarrhoea
    • Nausea and Vomiting
    • Fatigue
    • Abdominal Pain
    • Itching
    • Rash
    • Photosensitivity
    • Cold Sores
