Acyclovir side effects

Recommended Posts

arby3121

Does anyone else have this experience? When on Acyclovir I get the tingly buzzy thighs and butt that won't quit. Plus I feel very anxious and nervous and have a hard time sleeping. I know it affects my mood and behavior (I'm not normally this grumpy), and I feel like I'm on serious caffeine overload. Any recommendations to counter these side effects? I'm on Day 3 of Acyclovir treatment, this is my first recurrence after my initial occurance 14 months ago (and so relieved my first year was relatively uneventful). I had started taking Acyclovir on daily treatment a year ago, but the side effects were too much for me, and I just decided to treat if/when recurrence happened.

try taking half a dose and/or get some xanax or other tranquilizer, if you can get it prescribed.

Hi

I'm taking Acyclovir at the moment b/c I'm experiencing my first outbreak of genital herpes and the sores are extremely painful. I just wanted to ask you how long it took for the Acyclovir to heal your symptoms?

I took valcyclovir 1000 mg twice per day initially, which is slightly stronger than acyclovir My symptons disappeared in a few days initially, but my doctor told me to take it for 2 weeks. I take 500 mg now twice per day only when i have or feel a recurence coming on, and it disappears within 48 hrs.

What I fount that helps with pain is Ibuprofin, i take a triple dose. Also what helps is lip balm that contains benzocaine(available over-the-counter).

If you are not totally healed in 2 weeks, I would suggest you go to the doctor, there are to other Main anti-virals available in the USA, that being Valacyclovir and Famcyclovir. Both are superior than what you are taking , but are also more expensive.

Do you experience discharge during ur outbreaks? I'm experiencing a lot of it and it stings extremely bad. I've been experiencing it since i've had herpes symptoms and i've had to wear pads b/c it's a lot of discharge. Do u think that will affect the healing process? B/c I heard the sores are supposed to turn into scabs and i'm not sure if they can with all the discharge constantly on it.

My doctor also recommended taking Ibuprofen. I haven't tried it yet but I definitely will now.

      remember that the hsv is a virus in such a way that a virus that lives in our neurons and evades the immune system is not good for the human body and less for the neurons or the brain, what the hsv has is that it does not let die the neuronal cell but if the other epithelial cells where it multiplies and explodes

      No se porque la palabra se desmorona te impacto tanto si lo publique fue porque meses atrás salieron 2 publicaciones sobre crispr que generaban mutaciones inesperadas y las 3 principales compañías Dueñas de las patentes sus acciones cayeron pero se volvieron a recuperar también salió otra publicación donde se mencionaba que podríamos tener anticuerpos contra crispr y las acciones volvieron a caer, ahora sale este nuevo artículo y las acciones si revisas volvieron a caer  Yo no soy científico creo que la mayoría de esta comunidad tampoco lo es y no sabemos hasta que grado de éxito puede tener crispr tanto puede tener éxito para unas enfermedades y en otras puede ser algo difícil  Mi publicación fue para informar y saber sus opiniones no para que lo tomarán personal aveces se ven este tipo de publicaciones sobre crispr y alguien quiere saber que piensan que puede suceder para tener esa confianza intacta y no llegar a la desesperanza y para terminar la última oración que aparece abajo yo no la escribí es de un artículo sobre crispr y por eso coloque el enlace  Artículo ______________________ @Cas9  I do not know why the word falls apart will impact you so much if you publish it was because months ago there were 2 publications about crispr that generated unexpected mutations and the 3 main companies owners of the patents, their actions fell but they recovered again, another publication appeared mentioning that we could have antibodies against crispr and the actions fell again, now this new article comes out and the actions if you review fell again I am not a scientist I think that most of this community is not and we do not know until how much success Crisp can have so much can be successful for some diseases and in others it can be difficult My publication was to inform and know their opinions not so that they will take personal sometimes see these types of publications about crispr and someone wants to know what they think can happen to have that confidence intact and not to reach despair and to finish the last sentence that appears below I did not write it is from an article on crispr and that's why I put the link Article Again, once again, the remedy is worse than the disease. The CRISPR hooligans will deny it, and will try to continue forward with clinical trials
