Drug Info for acyclovir

Acyclovir is used to decrease pain and speed the healing of sores or blisters in people who have varicella (chickenpox), herpes zoster (shingles; a rash that can occur in people who have had chickenpox in the past), and first-time or repeat outbreaks of genital herpes (a herpes virus infection that causes sores to form around the genitals and rectum from time to time). Acyclovir is also sometimes used to prevent outbreaks of genital herpes in people who are infected with the virus. Acyclovir is in a class of antiviral medications called synthetic nucleoside analogues. It works by stopping the spread of the herpes virus in the body. Acyclovir will not cure genital herpes and may not stop the spread of genital herpes to other people.

Acyclovir is a medication used to treat viral infections such as herpes simplex, chickenpox, or shingles. Acyclovir works by interfering with viral DNA synthesis. Acyclovir is a generic medication also sold under the trade names Valtrex and Zorivax. Acyclovir was discovered in the mid-1970s. In the treatment of some viral infections, acyclovir use is very common.
