Acyclovir and hair loss

Recommended Posts

Trevon

Hi,

I have just been given acyclovir/aciclovir for suppressive therapy in order to reduce my outbreaks. I have been advised to take 800mg a day which i think is a normal amount.

I have read a bit about people loosing hair as a side effect. I'm really hoping this wont happen for me, but if any people who've experienced this could shed some light on it that would be great. So I know what to look out for, did it happen soon after starting? Was the hair thinning, receding or becoming patchy?

Any feedback is much appreciated!

I don't think that will be an issue.  Some people have hair loss in any case and if they are taking acyclovir, they probably relate it to the medication.

My hair was coming out evenly. I decided antivirals were not for me and was told if it became an issue to switch to Valtrex. I decided I didn't want to do any antivirals until I just had some sort of emergency. I started working on my immune system and then went to the most common things people use for hsv-2 and I'm good!

      I’m not following mate. You simply do not have herpes. Do you care if your partner has herpes? Has she tested?

      I know it’s genitalia because I had my outbreak there and sore was swabbed as hsv1 genitalia.

      Hey mate, really glad you sought out the swab. Regardless of what it all is, I hope it clears and you get back to your normal self soon.
