This medicine is similar to Valtrex, an antiviral drug containing Valacyclovir Hydrochloride as an active ingredient which works by stopping the growth and multiplication of the virus. It is used to treat herpes virus infections, chickenpox, genital herpes, cold sores in children above 12 years of age and also to treat children of 2 years of age suffering from chickenpox. It may also be used for other medical conditions as an antiviral drug if the special doctor decides to use this to the drug for that particular purpose.
Generic Valtrex is used in the treatment of herpes zoster (shingles) and the reduction of pain associated with zoster infection. It may include acute and postherpetic neuralgia when it is given to immunocompetent patients in infection of fewer than 72 hours duration. It may also be used for the prevention of recurrent herpes simplex infections of the skin and mucous membranes. It also includes genital herpes in immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients.
Is also used to treat herpes simplex infections of the skin and mucous membranes. It may consist of initial and recurrent genital herpes in immunocompetent patients as well. Is also used for the avoiding of cytomegalovirus (CMV) virus and disease which develops after organ transplantation.
Valcivir 500mg contains valacyclovir which is a prodrug of acyclovir which is absorbed and converted to acyclovir by the liver very rapidly. Valacyclovir then works in the same way as acyclovir does.
It mainly works as an antiviral agent which is highly active against both types of herpes simplex virus, HSV-I ( responsible for cold sores) and HSV-II (responsible for genital herpes); and also works opposite the closely related varicella zoster herpes virus(accountable for chickenpox) and shingles.
Acyclovir inhibits the action of a viral enzyme called DNA polymerase by blocking viral DNA synthesis. In that process, it does not affect standard cellular processes. It impacts the virus replication in a significant way and thus stops the growth and spread of the virus. It effectively relieves the symptoms of the disease and thus helps the body to fight the infection.
This medicine does not cure a herpes infection since the virus can lie dormant in infected cells and it can again be reactivated if the immunity of the patient gets low by physical or mental stress, any new infections like cold sores and shingles, any other illness or even exposure to sunlight. However, it can effectively reduce the disease associated pain and help in healing the sores caused by the infection.
