About Aciclovir Tablets
Aciclovir/Acyclovir (Zovirax) is an antiviral tablet, which is used to prevent or treat infections from the herpes simplex virus (HSV). It cannot completely cure herpes but will stop the growth of the virus and suppress the symptoms. Aciclovir can also be used as a means to prevent recurrent outbreaks. It is one of the most popular treatments in the UK for genital herpes.
If you begin to take Aciclovir as soon as symptoms appear, the outbreak will often disappear within one to two days. Recurrent outbreaks are usually preceded by a tingling or itching sensation. If you take Aciclovir as soon as you notice these signs, blisters may not occur at all. Aciclovir targets the enzyme that is necessary for the HSV to replicate and grow. By stopping further production of this enzyme, the virus cannot reproduce and create more blisters. This allows the immune system to fight the remaining virus and end the outbreak.
After taking Aciclovir, you should wait until the affected area has healed before resuming sexual activity.
