How it works
Acyclovir is a member of the antiviral medicine class. A class of pharmaceuticals is a collection of compounds with comparable mechanisms of action. Similar problems are frequently treated with these medications.
Acyclovir reduces the herpes virus' capacity to proliferate within your body. This addresses your infection's symptoms. Herpes infections cannot be cured by this medication. Cold sores, chickenpox, shingles, and genital herpes are examples of herpes infections. The herpes virus may persist in your body despite taking this medication. Even when the symptoms of your present infection have subsided, your problems could return later.
The oral acyclovir tablet doesn't make you sleepy, but it can have other negative effects.
Some of the more common side effects of acyclovir oral tablet include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, weakness
If you notice any serious side effects, consult your doctor immediately.
