ZOVIRAX DISPERSIBLE TABLETS (ACYCLOVIR DT)

Description of Zovirax Dispersible Tablets

If you have been diagnosed with shingles or genital herpes, your doctor may prescribe Zovirax Dispersible Tablets or generic Acyclovir DT to control the spread and slow the growth of the virus that’s responsible and help to decrease occurrences.

Shingles and chickenpox (varicella-zoster virus) are caused by the same virus, and if you have never had chickenpox, you won’t get shingles. If you have been infected with the herpes simplex virus (HSV), just like the varicella-zoster virus, it stays in your body forever waiting for a recurrence. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Acyclovir DT Reduces the Viral Numbers

When taken as directed, Zovirax Dispersible Tablets work by blocking a certain enzyme called DNA polymerase that the virus needs in order to survive. This action will reduce viral numbers as they are unable to multiply and produce new viruses. There is no cure for these viral infections, but Zovirax Dispersible Tablets will help you minimize the number of outbreaks you may have and reduce how long the virus stays active. Taking Zovirax Dispersible Tablets will not protect you from transmitting the herpes virus to others so precautions must still be used to avoid the risk of passing it on.

Conditions Treated by Zovirax Dispersible Tablets

Shingles is caused by the reactivation of the chickenpox virus and is most common in people over 50 years old. This virus is called varicella-zoster and it spreads through your bloodstream, infecting collections of nerve cells of your spinal or cranial nerves. After the sores have run their course and clear up, the virus remains dormant in your nerve cells. You may never experience a reinfection, but if you do, the virus travels down the nerve fibers to your skin. This results in painful blisters that usually only affect one side of your torso or your face.

Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) causes cold sores and genital herpes that is very contagious and the infection can reoccur many times. Zovirax Dispersible Tablets can help to reduce the symptoms as well as how many times you experience an outbreak when taken as directed by your doctor.

Before You Take Zovirax Dispersible Tablets

Ask your doctor if Zovirax Dispersible Tablets are safe to take if you are pregnant or trying to conceive. This drug is excreted into breast milk so you should not nurse your baby but bottle feed formula instead. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any current OTC or Rx drugs you are taking, including vitamin supplements and herbal preparations to make certain Zovirax Dispersible Tablets are safe for you to take.

Important Information About Taking Zovirax Dispersible Tablets

You should drink plenty of water if you are taking high doses of Zovirax Dispersible Tablets to prevent dehydration. For those with severely compromised immune systems, taking Zovirax Dispersible Tablets for prolonged periods or repeated courses could change the virus’s sensitivity to it and result in becoming non-responsive. Until you know how your body reacts to Zovirax Dispersible Tablets, you should be cautious while performing risky tasks.
