    Aciclovir for Shingles

    I went to the doctor after noticing my skin change and he diagnosed a shingles. Until then I was fine! A little tiredness and skin redness with small bubbles were everything. He then prescribed me acyclovir with the recommendation every 5 hours one tablet. After taking the 2 tablet, I was rapidly worse. Tiredness, nausea, severe body aches and unbearable headache. The redness was also more. I was even worse on the 2nd day and I became really depressed. I was able to get into bed at about 6 pm and the sweat just went down. I drank a lot of water and had to take a painkiller to be able to sleep at all. At this time, I had taken 7 tablets at the recommended time. When I woke up in the morning, I felt a little better. I thought about it for a long time and then decided not to take it. I only took high-dose vitamins, calcium and magnesium. And I was fine, compared to the 2 days with acyclovir. NO tiredness, NO headaches just a little burning on the reddened areas, which have not become more.

    Side effects: Depressive moods; Fatigue

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    I hate this drug. I have shingles in a tour. Constantly I get Zostex or aciclovir prescribed 800 and must 5 pcs. Take daily. The first 3 times of the intake I had an incredible dizziness. I was definitely not able to sleep or sleep anymore. But even here a head was enough to move and the dizziness is back. I’m taking Aciclovir for the fourth time in a year now and this time staring at hellish back pain! ! I had to be treated at Kh I had such pain. Whether it is due to the zoster or the drug no one knows. But even now after the 4th day is the horror again there. I’m nothing in Lange again. I have such hatred for the drug. If there was any possibility I would not take it anymore!

    Side effects: Back pain; Dizziness

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    With Cipramil, I can not say if it works. I do not feel well despite taking it. But that’s probably because of my illness. Actually, I just take it for safety – to have the feeling that at least I can influence something. Whether my weight gain is due to Cipramil, I can only guess! I take aciclovir for months and the only noticeable side effect is stomach problems. I had that earlier with medication revenue. But it is bearable. The constant herpes lesions were much more stressful!

    Side effects: Stomach pain

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    I have experienced panic-like anxiety and I thought I had to be instructed! It was sooooo bad, I was scared of everything and everyone. I have never experienced something like that! and I thought that it was related to me that I now suffer from depression, etc. but after I had discontinued the drug, I was suddenly well again. I will never take that again.

    Side effects: Anxiety states

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    In my recurring herpes zoster infections in the hip area, unfortunately, it is the only alternative at the moment. The drug will help within a day if I take it fast enough. I take acyclovir 400 2 tablets every 6 hours on the first day. After that I’m so groggy that I can not go to work. On the next few days then only 1 tablet every 6 hours, more I can not. Drowsiness, standing next to me, tinnitus, stomach ache, ggl. Diarrhea, just sleeping and no concentration! Have tachycardia sometimes for a short time, but do not know if it comes through the tablets. I hope that there will soon be a breakthrough in herpes virus research. This disease is unbearable.

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    I got terrible anxiety with severe depression and extreme headaches like never before in my life. In addition, very strong dizziness with each movement change. The skin also tightens the whole body – but without any visible parts. In addition, I feel inflated like a balloon edema and bladder emptying does not work as usual. After 1 week taking I break off now, although the doctor said I should take it over 14 days. In addition, there is no improvement in terms of the hellish pain.

    Aciclovir for Shingles

    Herpes Zoster (shingles on the face) The drug was not in stock in several pharmacies and had to be ordered. The application is of course very simple, with the tabeltates being extremely large and difficult to swallow, I recommend dividing the tablets and taking them directly in two installments. Side effects were: extreme tiredness and a little headache (although I did not respect the doctor’s calm but neglected the sickness certificate and continued to work). It is important to observe the time – I had to get one tablet every 4 hours take, d. H. Setting the alarm clock at night was really the only unpleasant thing about it.

    Side effects: Fatigue; Headache
