How to take Acyclovir
Date: 2/1/2012
I have Herpes Simplex in my private area for about 4 years. It usually occurs 3 – 4 times per year. Some outbreaks are more severe than others. I have been prescribed Acyclovir for the outbreaks– 200 mg 20 pills. I want to know the best time to start take it, like how many times a day. in witch hours, so I can get butter son.


AskDocWeb: The directions are printed on the container. If you can’t read them for some reason, you can ask the pharmacist who filled your order or call the doctor that prescribed them. For genital herpes this medication is typically started as soon as you notice symptoms (pain, burning, blisters) of an infection.

Acyclovir for shingles?
Date: 2/1/2012
Can I take acyclovir for shingles? If so, how much & how often? Thank you.


AskDocWeb: Acyclovir is used to treat shingles. I shortens healing time, reduces pain, and limits the formation of new lesions. Using Acyclovir also limits the spread of the virus. Whether you need the ointment, tablets, or capsules depends on your particular condition. You would need to be evaluated by your doctor to decide how much and how often it is needed.

Is ultrasound a proven treatment for shingles?
Date: 2/3/2012
I recently had to go to a chiropractor for a back adjustment. When I advised them that I had shingles and that I was taking acyclovir 800 mg they told me that I needed to come in and after receiving a back adjustment they started giving me an 8 minute treatment of ultrasound, is this a proven treatment for shingles? Thank you.


AskDocWeb: Although ultrasound has more than 60 years of clinical use, the effectiveness of ultrasound for shingles is still questionable. Ultrasound has many clinical applications but we would not rely on it for treating shingles.

Does Acyclovir effect cholesterol level?
Date: 2/9/2012
I would like to know if Acyclovir effects your colostorol level at all. I have been on it for about 1 yr and my colostorol has elevetaed substancially. Enough for me to be put on meds for it. Can you help me?

AskDocWeb: Acyclovir does not appear to raise cholesterol levels. However many people who use Acyclovir also supplement with lysine. High doses of lysine may increase cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Hair loss
Date: 2/10/2012
I have noticed an increase of outbreaks over the past 6 months…I am going through a great deal of changes. My concern is I have noticed that my hair has started to thin on the top of my head and this has been since I started taking valacyclovir 2 months ago…I really dont want to lose my hair!! Can the medicine be the cause and if not what can I do??


AskDocWeb: Some people report hair loss from prolonged use of Acyclovir but not from short term use. A dermatologist may be able to give you an idea about the cause of your hair loss after an evaluation. Stress seems to be a common cause and it sounds like you have had quite a bit in the past 6 months.

Burning sensation on tongue
Date: 2/25/2012
I’m currently having a bout of shingles and I went to the doctor a bit late (5 days after the first rashes) and was prescribed Acyclovir. Yesterday (the 4th day of taking it), I started having burning sensations on the tip of my tongue (no ulcers) and which now have spread to the general front area of the tongue. Could Acyclovir have caused this?


AskDocWeb: A burning sensations on tongue is called burning mouth syndrome, which includes the lips and any area inside the mouth. This is not a side effect of Acyclovir but it is common in people with anxiety and/or depression.
