acyclovir side effects

Acyclovir 200 mg. 2x a day. Can the side effect,"change in the amount of urine" in older people, apply to INCREASE in the amount of urine?(male, age 90) undergoing chemo. ## Hello, Ann! How are you? No, that's not a common side effect of Acyclovir, the FDA lists the most common ones as including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea and headache. However, most times, when someone is prescribed this medication, they are told to drink a lot of water, or are given a lot of water by their care givers, which could explain the change in urine volume. In rare cases, this medication has caused kidney crystals, which could lead to kidney failure, so most people are told to take it with lot of water, to help prevent this from occurring.

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.

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 ... ...

Acyclovir + Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen for herpes

I just recently found out I have herpes. My Dr prescribed me Acyclovir for the herpes and 5-325 Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen for the discomfort. Will the hydrocodone really help with the pain? ## Hello, Fml! How are you? Herpes affects the nerve ganglia, wherever your infection is located, either the abdominal area, or your face/head. Thus, while you see the blisters and sores, which can be quite uncomfortable, it can also cause some deeper pain, because of the way its affecting the nerves. Many that experience genital herpes also develop other symptoms, during a breakout, such as aches, pains and fever. That would be my guess as to why your doctor prescribed the Norco, though the best thing to do would be to ask them. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has t... ...

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!

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... ...
