About Aciclovir

How are aciclovir tablets taken?

You need to take each aciclovir tablet with plenty of water. You can take it with or without food, whichever you prefer. If you are having trouble swallowing the tablet, you can disperse it in a glass of water and drink it.

Which dosage do I need to take?

The exact dosage you require depends on your general health, your age and whether you are using Aciclovir to treat a current outbreak or prevent them from happening.

There are two options for treating an outbreak that has already started:

  • a high dose, 2 day course of treatment
  • a 5 day course

For the 2 day course you take two 400mg tablets, 3 times a day for 2 days.

For the 5 day course you take one 400mg tablet, 3 times a day for 5 days.

Both treatments are equally effective, but if you experience side effects, these might be more likely with the high dose course.

The treatment is also different if this is the first time you have ever had an outbreak. In this case you might need to take a longer course of treatment - one 400mg, 3 times a day for up to 10 days.

If you are taking aciclovir as a preventative measure you need to take 2 tablets per day over a longer period of time (usually 6 to 12 months). Depending on the success of your therapy you may need to continue the treatment over several weeks or even months.

Genital Herpes Treatment

You can treat genital herpes two ways. One treatment option is for when you experience an individual outbreak (acute therapy) and the other is treatment for when you need to avoid regular outbreaks (suppressive). Zava offers both types of treatment through a discreet, convenient service.
