Valtrex for Genital Herpes
Valtrex is an anti-viral treatment for genital herpes that can be used to relieve the immediate symptoms of an outbreak. It provides relief from the uncomfortable sores and blisters within 24 hours, and can clear an outbreak in as little as five days.
The Valtrex genital herpes treatment is available from euroClinix with free overnight delivery, so that you can start treatment as soon as symptoms appear. You will need to complete a short online consultation when you place your order, which will be assessed by one of our doctors.
How effective is Valtrex?
Valtrex effectively treats the herpes virus, giving you fast relief from its symptoms. Although genital herpes cannot be cured, this treatment can be used to tackle outbreaks quickly, returning the virus to a dormant state by preventing its ability to multiply in the body. This relieves the most painful symptoms with 24 hours, and helps to clear the full symptoms in five to seven days.
How does it work?
Valtrex contains the active ingredient valacyclovir hydrochloride. As this antiviral medicine enters the body, it breaks down into a different active ingredient known as acyclovir. Acyclovir acts quickly by restricting the expansion of infected cells in the body to stop them from reproducing and spreading to healthy cells.
Who can take it?
Valtrex can safely be prescribed to most patients over the age of 18. Patients who are over the age of 65 or people with liver or kidney problems should detail these conditions during the consultation as they may be prevented from using the Valtrex genital herpes treatment. It may also be unsuitable to take if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How to take Valtrex for genital herpes treatment
Two Valtrex 500mg tablets should be taken daily for between three and five consecutive days as soon as possible after you first experience symptoms of a recurrent outbreak. You should complete your course of medication even if symptoms disappear. If you are treating your very first outbreak of genital herpes, you should extend the course of treatment so it lasts for up to ten days.
Patients who are taking this medication as a preventative treatment should take the 500mg dosage once a day for as long as the doctor prescribes.
Are there any side effects?
This medication may cause adverse effects in some users, depending on their tolerance of the active ingredient. Reported side effects include headaches, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting and mild skin reactions. These effects are usually very mild and should pass as soon as your body has adapted to the medicine.
