Additional Information

Valaciclovir belongs to a class of drugs known as nucleoside analogues. It is also used to prevent cytomegalovirus infection following transplantation. It works by inhibiting the growth of viruses. Take valaciclovir exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.


To treat herpes simplex: For treatment, take valaciclovir by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually 2 times a day for 5 to 10 days.

Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.


Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Treatment with valaciclovir should be started as soon as possible after the first appearance of symptoms (such as tingling, burning, blisters). Continue to take valaciclovir even if you feel well. Do not stop taking valaciclovir without talking to your doctor.


To make sure valaciclovir is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

-kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis);
