Clorixan Information

I purchased clorixan 200 ml in Mexico for cold sores. I take one pill as soon as I feel a sore developing. It has worked so well that I would like to keep them on hand. What exactly is clorixan? ## Clorixan contains Acyclovir, it is an antiviral that is commonly used to treat most herpes simplex viruses, both genital, and oral, which is why it works so well. I take it myself, twice a day, every day, as a preventative, because one of the medications I am on can cause horrible cold sore outbreaks, which landed me in the ER several times, with several swelling in and around my mouth. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, diarrhea, taste disturbance and drowsiness. It is available in the U.S. by prescription, so you might wan...

m122 pill

My midwife prescribed me valcyclovir. I'm in my last month of pregnancy and have been taking the m122 tab for almost a month now, once a day and I still have outbreaks. How many should I take without hurting my baby? I dont want to have a c section. I have about 29 days left in my pregnancy, if he doesn't come early and im just trying to figure out what to do to get rid of the outbreaks and keep them gone until after I have my baby. I got another outbreak today and have been on the pill for weeks now, like 3 going on 4, and I dont think my midwife knows what shes talking about. ## Are you certain that it's herpes? It very rarely breaks out like that, there are usually times where you are definitely symptom free and it recurs every few months, not several times a month. If it...

Expired Acyclovir medicine

I have acyclovir with a date that is 2 years old. Is it still effective since it has not been opened? It is stored in a dark, dry cabinet. Thanks. ## It does not become dangerous, once expired, but it may have lost some efficacy, thus it would be best to see your doctor for a new prescription, if you need to take it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, and flatulence. Are you on any other medications?

taking two pills 5 times a day

I was diagnosed with shingles and was prescribed with ACYCLOVIR 400 MG TABLETS and it says to take 2 tablets by mouth five times per day for 7 days.. But I don't understand? How many hours apart do I wait for each set of two tablets? ## I was just given the same med, but mine is 1 tab 5x day. My doctor said I didn't have to wake up at night for a dose, so I set this up: 6am,10am, 2pm, 6pm and the last one for the day @ 10pm. Hope this helps. ## My prescription for CARB/LEVO 25 - 100 mg reads: Take 1 and 1/2 tablets by mouth 5 times a day. The first pill would be at 8:00 AM. When would the times be for pills 2, 3, 4 and 5 - if bedtime is involved, which would be at 22:30 / 10:30 PM? Thank you for your assistance.

What Is The Experation Date Of Acyclovir

An friend gave me a bottle of acyclovir over two years old can it still be used for the same purpose at this time, or has it lost its affectiveness completely. With no symptons at this time I will often use this medicine unexpired of course just for its clealiness qualities in the vaginal area. ## It has probably not lost all of its effectiveness, completely, but if it is in a bottle that has been opened, such as one from a pharmacy and not a factory sealed bottle, then it does start to lose effectiveness, after a year. This is not one of the ones that gets dangerous or toxic, after its expiration, but it will probably not be as effective, as it was, when it was new. The effectiveness duration can also be affected by other factors, such as storage, because heat, moisture and light will ...

terramicina cream for lip blisters

I have used terramicina cream in the past for lip blisters, and found it to be really soothing and quickly healed with this treatment.
