Frequently asked questions about valacyclovir

What is valacyclovir?

Valacyclovir (generic for Valtrex) is a prescription medication used to treat conditions caused by the herpes virus. Valacyclovir can be used to treat cold sores (Herpes Labialis), genital herpes, and shingles (Herpes Zoster). Valacyclovir can be prescribed to children to treat cold sores and chickenpox.

Once the herpes virus has entered your body, it never fully leaves - even once your initial symptoms have worn off. This means that you may be at risk of developing shingles, cold sores, or genital herpes outbreak even years after your original infection. The CDC even estimates that 1 in every 6 Americans aged 14-49 has genital herpes.

While it cannot cure herpes (there is no cure, actually), valacyclovir is an antiviral agent that targets the herpes virus within your body, helping to alleviate and control outbreaks - whether they come in the form of cold sores, shingles, or more.

What does valacyclovir treat?

Doctors prescribe valacyclovir to treat shingles, cold sores, and genital herpes. In pediatric patients, doctors may prescribe valacyclovir to treat chickenpox and cold sores.

It is important to note that while valacyclovir is effective in managing symptoms associated with herpes, it is not a cure for the herpes virus. No cure currently exists for the condition.

How does valacyclovir work?

Valacyclovir is an antiviral drug that works by limiting the herpes virus’s ability to replicate within your body and infect healthy cells. This slows down your infection and helps provide symptom relief.

What are the most common side effects of valacyclovir?

While adverse reactions to valacyclovir are uncommon, some patients who take the drug may experience mild side effects, including headache, nausea, and stomach pain.

Serious side effects - although very rare - may include facial edema, hypertension, tachycardia, acute hypersensitivity, rash, aggressive behavior, agitation, ataxia, coma, confusion, decreased consciousness, encephalopathy, mania, psychosis, seizures, visual abnormalities, diarrhea, liver enzyme abnormalities, hepatitis, renal failure, renal pain, thrombocytopenia, aplastic anemia, leukocytoclastic vasculitis, and rashes.

If you are experiencing any of these side effects - or common side effects that do not go away - contact your doctor.

This is not a complete list of side effects. To learn more about adverse conditions associated with valacyclovir, please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed page for valacyclovir.

How long does it take for valacyclovir to work?

You can expect to feel some symptom relief within 2 to 3 days of beginning a course of valacyclovir. As an antiviral drug, valacyclovir is most effective when taken within the first few days of the onset of your herpes symptoms.

It is important to note that while valacyclovir can help manage herpes symptoms, it is not a cure for the condition. In fact, no cure for herpes currently exists. Even while taking valacyclovir, herpes infections can be spread to others. It is recommended that you avoid sexual contact with others while the sores are present or if you think you may be experiencing an outbreak. In addition, you should avoid contact with open sores.

What’s a typical starting dose of valacyclovir?

The recommended dose of valacyclovir depends on the type of infection it has been prescribed to treat. To treat cold sores, it is recommended that you take 2 grams every 12 hours for 1 day. Shingles patients are usually prescribed 1 gram, 3 times per day, for 7 days.

Valacyclovir is most effective in treating genital herpes when taken within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. 1 gram should be taken twice a day for 10 days.
