Learn how to use Acyclovir as a Herpes Medication

You can use Acyclovir (Zorivax) to treat and suppress Genital Herpes or Cold Sores.

That's the good news. Even though there is no cure for Herpes, this herpes medication has been working for close to 30 years in treating and suppressing the herpes virus.

And it's cheap!!! Anyone can afford it. Especially if you look for this herpes medication cheap online.

It is also known as cyclovir, aciclovir, and the original brand name, Zorivax. This proven medication was released in 1981 as Zorivax. The Pharmocologist Gertrude Elion won the 1988 Nobel Prize in medicine for the effectiveness and innovation in this medicine.

Eventually Acyclovir was concentrated into the pharmaceutical drug Valtrex which you can buy through a generic pharmacy. Valtrex is a more powerful drug than Acyclovir and works better for suppressing the virus if you are with a partner.

How does Acyclovir work?

I'm no pharmacologist. But from my research I found out that it works by adding an enzyme to the body that prevents the herpes from replicating.

In other words, it stops the virus from reproducing. That way the white blood cells in your immune system can fight off the virus during an outbreak.

There's been hundreds, if not thousands of studies, proving the effectiveness of this herpes medication. It's the one I like to use.

It's a very affordable medication and you can get it easily at such places as Wal-Mart, Wal-Green, and Rite-Aid.

I have found this medication when traveling at pharmacies and was able to get it without a prescription at an affordable cost like $30 for one month.

How do you use it?

There's some simple ways to use this herpes medication.

"If you use an online pharmacy, then you will not need a prescription. So if you are in a rush, that is certainly an option."

  1. Get a prescription from a doctor. You will need this if you want to buy it from a local pharmacy such as Wal-Mart or Wal-Greens. If you use an online pharmacy, then you will not need a prescription. So if you are in a rush, that is certainly an option.
  2. Take the medication orally. In other words, get tablets or pills for aciclovir. I've tried using the topical version (a creme), but it doesn't have the same potency as taking it orally.
  3. Take lots of aciclovir before, during, and after outbreaks.That is why this medication is so effective. You can use it before an outbreak to prevent the herpes outbreak. You can take acyclovir during an outbreak to reduce it's severity and intensity. And you can take the medication in the days following an outbreak to heal faster.
  4. Keep a constant dose in the body. Aciclovir works best when there is a constant dose in he body to keep the herpes virus from replicating.

What is the normal dosage?

The dose I have taken before, during, and after an outbreak is 200-800 mg every four hours which works out to taking a pill five times a day.

That will do a great job in suppressing, treating, and healing your genital herpes or cold sore.

You can also take acyclovir as a suppressive medication. You will take a 400 mg pill twice a day. This will prevent many if not all of your herpes outbreaks. That's the good news.

Taking it in a suppressive manner like this can also reduce asymptomatic shedding. So it is important that you take this when you are sexually active with someone who doesn't have the virus.
