What are the benefits?
Famvir provides relief from the painful symptoms of a shingles outbreak and speeds up your healing time by two to three days. While most other anti-viral treatments only have an effect on the symptoms, this medication can help to minimise the nerve pain that is a consequence of an outbreak. Famvir is usually a well-tolerated treatment, which is why it is also the most suitable treatment for patients over 50 to use.
You can also consult your doctor if you would like to take Famvir to avoid an outbreak of shingles once you know you are infected with the varicella simplex virus, which causes the condition.
This treatment is at its most effective if taken within the first 48 hours of the first symptoms appearing. At first, symptoms may not always be visible, but the most common signs of an outbreak include a tingling or burning pain in the affected area, fever, chills, numbness, headaches and stomach issues.
Three Famvir 500mg tablets should be taken over a single day for seven consecutive days, each dose with a glass of water.
What side effects can this medication cause?
A small number of users may experience side effects, but in general this treatment is very well tolerated. The most common side effects are usually mild and include:
- Painful menstrual cramps.
Men who suffer from liver, galactose or kidney problems may not be able to use this medicine. Research has shown that anti-viral medications don't cause birth defects. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, a doctor may choose to prescribe an alternative treatment.
