Taking aciclovir suppression short term

Recommended Posts



Does anyone have any experience of taking aciclovir suppressive dose but for say just a week or two. Not the usual 3 months to a year?

My partner is working away at the moment, has been for several months and back soon. I've read that aciclovir can take 5 days to get into your system so I'm thinking of taking this before my partner is back and continue for the first few days when they're back to stop outbreaks as obviously this would be really frustrating timing!!

But I know you're supposed to take it for at least a few months but I'd rather not do that if I don't have to.

Will taking aciclovir suppressive dose for such a short period do any harm? Could it cause outbreaks in any way?
