Valacyclovir

Valacyclovir is an antiviral prescription medicine used to treat infections that have been caused by the herpes virus. They’re commonly given to people who have previously had conditions such as genital herpes, eye infections, and cold sores or who have a weak immune system. It is also used to treat chickenpox in children aged two to eighteen.

It is given to treat outbreaks of herpes virus conditions. People who have recurring outbreaks may take Valacyclovir to reduce the severity of future outbreaks. It is not a cure for viral infections but rather limits the capacity for a virus to develop, which helps to boost the recovery time from cold sores, decreases itching, and stops new symptoms from developing.

Part of the purine nucleoside analog drug class, it was first approved for use by the FDA in 1995 and is sold under the brand name Valtrex.

What is Valacyclovir Prescribed For?

The antiviral drug Valacyclovir is prescribed by licensed healthcare professionals to treat a wide range of conditions caused by certain types of viruses, most commonly the herpes virus. It is given to both adults and children.

In children, it is typically used to treat cold sores and chickenpox. In adults, it is used to treat genital herpes, cold sores, and shingles.

How Does valacyclovir Work?

Valacyclovir works by reducing the spread and growth of the virus within the body. It does not eliminate the virus from the body but rather limits the impact that it can have. It blocks enzymes within the virus which prevents it from building upon itself; in other words, it stops the virus from growing. The effect is that outbreaks and flare-ups are not as severe and last for shorter periods of time. It also makes it more difficult for the virus to spread from one host to another.

What Are The Side Effects of Valacyclovir?

Some people experience the side effects of taking Valacyclovir. However, most side effect symptoms are mild, and they only affect around one in ten people that take the medication. Even for people who do experience some side effects, the benefits of taking the drug typically outweigh the downsides.

Common side effects include:

  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Sensitive skin

In rare instances, more serious side effects may be experienced, especially among people who are sixty-five and older. These symptoms include:

  • Unexpected bleeding
  • Tiredness
  • Fever and pale skin
