Product Overview

Acyclovir (generic Zovirax)

  • What is acyclovir?
    Acyclovir (generic Zovirax) is an antiviral medication primarily used to treat cold sores (herpes simplex). It is also effective in treating shingles (herpes zoster), varicella (chickenpox), and genital herpes. Acyclovir works by targeting herpes simplex, the virus that causes cold sores. Even after a cold sore outbreak has dissipated, the herpes simplex continues to live in your body - leaving you at risk of future outbreaks. As an antiviral drug, acyclovir targets herpes simplex to reduce the cadence and severity of these outbreaks - keeping you healthy and your cold sores to a minimum.

    Looking for a safe, effective way to manage symptoms of herpes? Talk to your doctor about whether acyclovir is right for you.

  • What are common side effects of acyclovir?
    While adverse reactions to acyclovir are uncommon, some patients who take the drug may experience mild side effects, including malaise, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and headache.

    Dizziness, kidney problems, mood changes, trouble speaking, and unsteady movement rarely occur, but have been known to be serious side effects of acyclovir. If you are experiencing any of these conditions, call your doctor right away.

    This is not a complete list of side effects. For more information on adverse reactions you may experience while taking acyclovir, contact your doctor directly.

Frequently asked questions about acyclovir

What is acylcovir?

Acyclovir (generic Zovirax) is an antiviral medication primarily used to treat cold sores (herpes simplex). It is also effective in treating shingles (herpes zoster), varicella (chickenpox), and genital herpes. Acyclovir is prescribed to more than 4 million Americans each year and can be taken orally, topically, or via injection.

Acyclovir works by targeting herpes simplex, the virus that causes cold sores. Even after a cold sore outbreak has dissipated, the herpes simplex continues to live in your body - leaving you at risk of future outbreaks. As an antiviral drug, acyclovir targets herpes simplex to reduce the cadence and severity of these outbreaks - keeping you healthy and your cold sores to a minimum.

What is acyclovir used to treat?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved acyclovir to treat cold sores (herpes simplex), varicella (chickenpox), shingles (herpes zoster), and genital herpes.

How does acyclovir work?

Acyclovir belongs to a group of antiviral drugs. These medications work by targeting viruses within the body and inhibiting their development. They identify and disarm key proteins within the virus, helping limit the infection and ease your symptoms. Antivirals are used to treat a range of conditions, including herpes, HIV, hepatitis, and even COVID-19.

It should be noted that acyclovir does not cure herpes. After infection, the herpes simplex never fully leaves your body. While it can remain dormant for long periods of time, it will be with you for the rest of your life. Acyclovir, though, can significantly reduce the likelihood and frequency of cold sore and herpes outbreaks and help ensure that - when cold sores do strike - they are less severe than would be without treatment.

What are the most common side effects of acyclovir?

Common side effects of acyclovir can include malaise, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and headache.

Dizziness, kidney problems, mood changes, trouble speaking, and unsteady movement are all rare but serious side effects of acyclovir. If you are experiencing any of these conditions, call your doctor right away.

How long does it take for acyclovir to work?

You can expect to feel symptom relief after about 3 days of taking acyclovir. If you’ve been prescribed acyclovir for chickenpox, symptoms usually begin to dissipate within 48 hours.

What’s a typical starting dose of acyclovir?

If you’ve been prescribed oral doses of acyclovir for genital herpes, it is recommended you take 200 mg 5 times per day for 10 days. To treat recurrent herpes outbreaks, acyclovir may be prescribed 5 times per day for up to a year. For chickenpox, adults and children over 88 pounds should take 800 mg of acyclovir four times per day for five days. Shingles patients are often prescribed 800 mg of acyclovir 5 times per day for 7-10 days.
