Genuine Aciclovir

What is Aciclovir?



Of all medications that are used successfully to treat sexually transmitted infections caused by viruses, Aciclovir is definitely a leading one. Antiviral properties of this medication are most suitable to treat infections caused by the herpes simplex virus, both type 1 (cold sores) and type 2 (genital herpes). In treating symptoms like shingles, caused by herpes zoster, Aciclovir is equally effective. This medication is most frequently prescribed by doctors to those facing an outbreak for the first time. The main problem with an infection caused by the herpes virus is that it cannot be cured completely and the risk of recurrence of the symptoms persists. The effective medicinal properties of this medication, however, can help you to manage the outbreaks very conveniently.

What are the benefits of Aciclovir?



It is important that people suffering from an infection caused by the herpes virus start taking the right dosage of Aciclovir, after consulting a physician, as soon as they find out the symptoms. Generally the symptoms of genital herpes, cold sores and shingles appear after 7 to 21 days since you were infected. The strong active ingredient of this medication not only reduces the symptoms of an infection within a short time period but also helps you to recover quite early. It has been found that people who experience the outbreaks of herpes infection quite frequently, this medication is most suitable for them.

How do Aciclovir pills work



The active ingredient of Aciclovir pills work by attacking the herpes simplex virus so that it fails to spread. The simplex virus generates the DNA polymerase enzymes that help this virus to duplicate itself and spread randomly. After consumption, it automatically gets converted into an acyclo-guanosine monophosphate (acyclo-GMP) and stops the simplex viral strains from producing DNA polymerase enzymes. Naturally the simplex virus becomes weaker and your natural physical immunity puts the infection to a dormant state and also protects others from being infected.

Who can use Aciclovir?



The strong medicinal properties of Aciclovir don’t allow physicians to recommend it to anyone who is below 18 years of age.

Patients with very high blood sugar problems or those who are using any of these medications - zidovudine, ciclosporin or cimetidine – may also find physical complications after using Aciclovir.

If this medication needs to be used for preventing further outbreaks of genital herpes and cold sores, a person needs to take four 200mg pills of this medication every day for six months to one year.
