Description

Valtrex (Valacyclovir) is used to treat herpes zoster (shingles) and genital herpes. It does not cure herpes infections but decreases pain and itching, helps sores to heal, and prevents new ones from forming. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Valacyclovir (Generic) is available for purchase. 

Valacyclovir comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken every 8 hours (three times a day) for 7 days to treat shingles. To treat genital herpes it is usually taken twice a day for 5 days. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take valacyclovir exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Use this medication as soon as possible after symptoms appear. Continue to take valacyclovir even if you feel well. Do not stop taking valacyclovir without talking to your doctor.

Cautions

Before taking valacyclovir,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to acyclovir (Zovirax), valacyclovir, or any other drugs.
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking, especially cimetidine (Tagamet), probenecid (Benemid), and vitamins.
  • tell your doctor if you have or have ever had kidney or liver disease, problems with your immune system, human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV), or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while taking valacyclovir, call your doctor.

Side Effects

Valacyclovir may cause side effects including:

  • headache
  • upset stomach
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea or loose stools
  • constipation

Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away. If you experience any of the following side effects, call your doctor immediately:

  • rash
  • itching
  • confusion
  • yellowness of the skin or eyes
  • fever
  • blood in the urine

I am so grateful for the service Canadian MedCenter provides. Many medications in the USA are too expensive to obtain and I would not have been able to afford the cost of the medications my dog needs to survive. Thank you once again for providing this service!!! Ramona in Kansas City, MO
