I was given this med for a sinus infection and found out i have an STI. I'm just wondering if i could kill two birds with one stone? ## It depends on what STI you have been diagnosed with, not all are responsive to this antibiotic.

Valacyclovir with Ibuprofen
10 Replies RSS
I've been searching everywhere for an answer to this, but does anybody know if it is okay to take Advil with Valacyclovir? My wife's gotten a headache (a reported side effect) and is really wanting to take a pain medication. I have read that individuals should check with their doctor before taking Valacyclovir if they are taking NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen, but I can't seem to find a definite answer if one Advil will be harmful. ## Ibuprofen is not specifically listed as a drug which interacts with Valacyclovir (meaning it is not implicitly described as dangerous to take together with it, whereas other drugs have been mentioned). This does not mean that you shouldn't double check with your doctor or pharmacist, but she should be good to take an Advil, as lo...

Hey I'm Gwen iv been using Canex V for three nights now and I was instructed to also lightly put it on the thrush but iv noticed it keeps getting worse the skin redness ,itching and the sores , isn't there anything else I can use to get rid of the sores? They are painful I cant even walk properly ## Hello, Gwen! How are you? Has there been any change? Redness and sores aren't typical symptoms of Thrush. Have you been actively engaging in intercourse? Those are more typically symptoms of herpes, there is no cure for it, but there are antiviral medications you can take to help prevent future break outs, according to the NIH. Their typical side effects may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach pain. Are you on any other medications?

white pill n947 800 on other side
2 Replies RSS
Can this pill be used for an infection? ## This tablet is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 800mgs of Acyclovir. The FDA classifies this as an antiviral medication, it is most commonly used to treat or prevent herpes breakouts, either genital or oral. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. So no, it will not treat a bacterial infection. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can it be used for an infection such as a bad inj. sore from intravenous drugs?
