Valcivir (valaciclovir) is an antiviral treatment used to treat certain viral infections, predominantly herpes. The medication can reduce the duration and symptoms of an active attack as well as reduce the frequency and severity of future attacks.

Unfortunately Valcivir is not a cure, and while it may make transmission of the virus to others less likely, it does not entirely eliminate the possibility.

Once consumed, Valcivir breaks down into aciclovir, which inhibits the ability of viruses to duplicate and spread. Inhibited viruses are more easily beaten by the body's immune system, hence reducing the frequency of attacks and severity of symptoms when attacks do occur.

This product is superior to aciclovir in that Valcivir is easier for the body to absorb and utilize, thus is more effective in smaller amounts and less likely to produce side effects.

Valcivir Uses

Valcivir is an antiviral medication, effective only against certain types of viruses. It is not an effective treatment for bacterial or fungal infections, and not particularly effective against all types of viruses. For best results a doctor will confirm the cause of infection and recommend the ideal treatment.

In the majority of cases Valcivir is to treat:

  • Herpes simplex virus type I
  • Herpes simplex virus type II
  • Varicella zoster virus (shingles)
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Cytomegalovirus (after an organ transplant)

Again, Valcivir is not a cure, but it does provide a number of benefits:

  • Disrupts a current outbreak
  • Reduces the frequency of outbreaks
  • Reduces the severity of symptoms
  • Reduces the duration of an outbreak

Treatment with Valcivir may not prevent all outbreaks all of the time, but will significantly reduce the frequency with which they happen. Outbreaks that do occur will be shorter and symptoms will not be as apparent or troublesome.

Taking Valcivir

Valcivir comes in tablets. Taking two smaller tablets is the same as taking one larger dose; for example, taking two 500 mg tablets is the same as taking one 1000 mg tablet. Tablets should be swallowed whole, however, and not split.

Food is optional but may ease gastrointestinal side effects, if experienced. It's important to drink plenty of fluids for the duration of treatment with Valcivir, as the medication can be dehydrating.

Dosage and administration depends largely on what's being treated.

To treat herpes:

  • Treatment should begin at the earliest symptoms an outbreak is starting.
  • Take 1000 mg of Valaciclovir per day.
  • Treatment typically continues for 5 days.

To reduce or prevent recurrent herpes outbreaks:

  • Take 500 mg per day.
  • Treatment should continues for 6 to 12 months, at which point treatment should be reevaluated.

To treat shingles:

  • Treatment should begin within 72 hours of the first symptoms.
  • Take 1000 mg three times per day (total daily dose of 3000 mg).
  • Treatment typically continues for 7 days.

To treat Epstein-Barr virus:

  • Dosage strength varies by individual; usually between 500 mg to 1500 mg a day, but in some cases as high as 3000 mg.
  • It may take several months of treatment before improvements are noticeable.
  • Duration of treatment should be determined by a doctor.

To prevent cytomegalovirus:

  • Treatment should begin immediately after an organ transplant
  • Take 2000 mg four times per day (total daily dose of 8000 mg).
  • Treatment typically continues for three months (90 days), but may be longer according to doctor instructions.

Valcivir should not be administered to children except in cases of organ transplants.

It's important to complete treatment even if symptoms improve or disappear. Discontinuing treatment too soon contributes to virus resistance.

Side Effects & Other Concerns

Side effects from Valcivir are fairly rare when the medication is used properly. Most are mild and do not warrant medical attention unless they are severe or persistent:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Vertigo
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Patients with moderate to severe liver or kidney issues should speak with a doctor prior to starting treatment.

Though rare, some patients develop increased sensitivity to UV rays during treatment. These patients must take care to avoid sun exposure, using sunblock and protective clothing when exposure is unavoidable. Tanning beds should also be avoided.

There are other medications known to interact with Valcivir. Though unlikely to produce life-threatening complications, they can reduce effectiveness of Valcivir. Always double-check with a doctor or pharmacist before introducing new medications.
