For Cold Sores


Acyclovir 800 mg acts against cold sores by countering the herpes virus that causes them. It is used to reduce the severity and the recurrence of the oral sores associated with the condition. For most effectiveness, it is advised that the Acyclovir treatment is begun as soon as symptoms begin to appear. Physicians encourage users to maximize their intake of water to aid the drug. Acyclovir must not be distributed for use without due diagnosing and prescription, as it may be harmful to some people. Prescribed dosages should be not exceeded. All side effects must be reported to the prescribing physician. People with sensitivity to valaciclovir or allergies to any of the ingredients in the medicine may not be prescribed this drug. Elderly, immuno-compromised/deficient, dehydrated patients may also come under this category.

For Bell's Palsy


Previously, antiviral drugs like acyclovir were thought to be futile in treating Bell's palsy. There was, however, a supposed connection between Bell's palsy, the herpes simplex and varicella zoster viruses. Acyclovir was usually prescribed to deal with these symptoms. However, new research has shown some positive results of the use of acyclovir in combination with the other treatments at an overall level. Combining antivirals with the other medications has been controversial, however, some researchers are pointing to evidence of a shift in a more promising direction. While standalone effectiveness of antivirals in treating Bell’s palsy has been dismissed, the use of drugs like acyclovir in combination with steroids continues to be tested and debated.
