What is Zovirax?

Zovirax is a brand name for a medication called acyclovir. It is an antiviral drug primarily used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses, including genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, and chickenpox.

Zovirax comes in various forms, including oral tablets, capsules, suspension, and topical creams. The method of administration and dosage depends on the condition being treated and the formulation prescribed by a healthcare provider.

Oral tablets/capsules: Usually taken with a full glass of water, with or without food, as directed by a doctor.

Suspension: To ensure accurate dosage, the suspension should be shaken well before each dose and measured with a dosing spoon or syringe.

Topical cream: Applied directly to the affected area according to the instructions provided on the product packaging or by a healthcare professional.

Zovirax Side Effects

Common side effects of Zovirax may include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rash or itching

Serious side effects are rare but may include:

  • Allergic reactions (hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat)
  • Seizures
  • Unusual changes in mood or behavior
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Signs of kidney problems (such as change in the amount of urine)

If you experience any severe side effects or signs of an allergic reaction, seek immediate medical attention.


Inform your healthcare provider about any allergies, medical conditions, or medications you are taking before starting Zovirax.

Zovirax may interact with certain medications, so it's essential to disclose all medications you're currently taking to your doctor.

Avoid sexual contact or use condoms to prevent spreading genital herpes while using Zovirax.

Drink plenty of fluids while taking Zovirax to prevent dehydration.


Can Zovirax cure herpes?

Zovirax can help manage symptoms and reduce the duration of herpes outbreaks, but it does not cure herpes infections. It works by slowing the growth and spread of the herpes virus in the body.

Can Zovirax prevent herpes outbreaks?

Zovirax may be used to prevent herpes outbreaks in certain situations, such as for individuals with frequent recurrences. However, its effectiveness varies from person to person.

How long does it take for Zovirax to work?

The time it takes depends on the severity of the condition being treated. Some people may notice improvement in symptoms within a few days of starting treatment, while others may take longer.

Can I use Zovirax cream on genital herpes?

Zovirax cream can be used to treat genital herpes outbreaks. However, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
