Valacyclovir with Ibuprofen

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...

Valacyclovir hcl 500mg v.s. Valacyclovir 1gm tablets

What is the difference between valacyclovir hcl 500mg and valacyclovir 1gm tablets? Why does one have hcl on the prescription bottle and the other just says valacyclovir? ## The only different between what you listed is the dosage, and the HCL just designated the specific chemical salt that medication has been derived from, some places list it on the prescription, and some don't. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## What's the best medicine for shingles. Plus how can I boost my immune system and what should I eat or take to boost my immune system.

Valacyclovir with light alcohol intake

I've been taking Valacyclovir for about 30 days 3 times a day for shingles. I'd like to have a beer or cocktail at dinner with my wife. Would this be ok or not? Have any other patients had any problems mixing the drug and alcohol? ## Indulging in alcohol while taking this medication could cause you to experience more severe side effects than usual, according to NIH warnings, which may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, and vomiting. Thus, if your doctor approves of your imbibing, you should make sure that you will not be driving, or operating any dangerous machinery, afterwards. Are you on any other medications?

valacyclovir 500 mgs twice daily

What could this be prescribed for? ## Hello, Ann! How are you? The FDA classifies Valacyclovir as an antiviral medication that is used to help prevent recurrences of the herpes virus, this one is usually only used for the genital outbreaks. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Why is Aurobindo added to the prescription Valacyclovir? What is it and is it safe to use? ## Aurobindo is simply the name of the drug manufacturer who made your Valacyclovir. It is not a substance and shouldn't be relevant in that regard. Were you used to taking a different manufacturer's product beforehand? I hope this helps!

Half of a blue elipitical pill with either 86, 98, or 96

I found half of a blue pill. It looks like it may have been scored, can't tell for sure. It has an imprint of either 86, 98, or 96? ## Valacyclovir - 500mg commonly used to treat herpes and other viruses. ## @Doc, From what I can tell, the 500mg Valacyclovir hydrochloride tablet I'm seeing is indeed oblong and blue, but the imprint on it is "F 82". So if it were broken in half there would just be the "82" showing and not any of the prospective numbers that were mentioned by Randi (86, 98, or 96). I guess it all depends on the condition of the pill and how Randi interpreted it in whatever state it was found, but as far as I know, 500mg Valacyclovir is still considered an educated guess and not necessarily the correct answer. Hopefully Randi will post back soon wit...

m122 directions

How often is m122 usually taken? Once a day? 3 times a day?? ## This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 500mgs of Valacyclovir, which is used to treat or prevent recurring vaginal herpes outbreaks. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain and diarrhea. You should follow your doctor's dosing instructions, but usually, for prevention of outbreaks, it is dosed as 1gram, which would be 2 of these tablets, once daily. Unless you have less than 9 recurrences yearly, then it's just one tablet, once a day. If you can post back with what condition is being treated, I can provide you with more details. Can you please clarify? ## Cold sore treatment. Usually one occurance a year.

can i take valacyclovir and amoxtr 875 125 mg simultaneously to treat mouth sore

My doctor prescribed me valacyclovir.I took the full dose (2 pills in AM, 2 pills in PM of same day.) That was yesterday. My mouth sore is bigger! I have amoxtrk 875=125 as well as ayclovir 800mg (6 pills) Can I take either of these two prescriptions considering that I took valacyclovr yesterday? I really need this mouth sore to disappear asap!!! ## Hello, Jill! How are you doing? Both Valacyclovir and Acyclovir are only effective against the herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores and, once you've already gotten a cold sore, that initial dose you took on the first day is enough. Taking more by adding the Acyclovir will not do anything, nor will it help it to heal up any faster. Basically, once you have the cold sore, you have the cold sore and the only thing that's going to...

valacyclovir and nausea medication

What medication can I take with valacyclovir to help with nausea and vomiting? ## Hello, Wendy! How are you? Are you on a short-term dosage to deal with an outbreak, or do you take it regularly as a preventative? For short-term use of higher doses, there likely isn't much that will help, though your doctor may be able to prescribe something for nausea. However, if you're taking it long-term for prevention, then you may do better switching to either Acyclovir or Famcyclovir to see if they cause you less issues. ## Thankyou for your response. I had an outbreak on my mouth a month and a half a go and then 3 more over the next 2 weeks, then a week after that i got them in my nose. Last week i woke up thinking something had scratched my eyeand went to the doc and he said i had a blis...

WHERE IS THE GENERIC DRUG valacyclovir manufactured (labatories) produced. I what I am getting here in Florida manufactured here in the usa and is that where Walgreens Drug store is getting this product from. ## Hello, Norma! How are you? Where it is actually manufactured doesn't matter. If it is approved for use in the U.S. and available from a licensed U.S. pharmacy, then it must meet the same strict quality and efficacy standards as all other medications. Have you had some problem with them?
