    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.

I have a feeling the drug is still in my body. I hope soon it will go away from my body because of such side effects, I can not stand anymore. P.S. never against aciclovir was poison for my body. I would never have taken it.

    Aciclovir for Herpes

    First I took in the same thing 4 weeks Zostex (same active ingredient). After a week, I was always sick, I got sweats at night and have frozen in the daytime, stomach aches, dizziness, massive depression, headaches, slackness, fatigue, sleep disorders. Now I switched to acyclovir. In the beginning everything was fine except for abdominal pain. But after a week the same side effects. There are chest complaints. I’m not waiting for the depressions anymore, but I’m leaving.

    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 Herpes

    I often have recurring lip and nose sores, i. I have herpes in the nose, on the nose and around both lips (looks awful). After a long back and forth, my doctor gave me the drug Aciclovir 200. My doctor told me I should take instead of 2 as indicated 2 tablets daily, which I have done, since I have not read the leaflet in advance. However, I have to say that my discomfort already occurred after a tablet. The fatigue came very fast about 3-4 hours after taking it but that was not all I got dizziness about 6 hours after taking and fainted, I talked even half an hour after I woke up was still confused stuff and knew not where I was even though I was lying on the sofa with my mother. It was just terrifying for me because I never had problems with my circulation and did not know the feeling of helplessness. I would not recommend this drug, because otherwise I live very Geusnd not smoke alcohol and otherwise pay attention to my nutrition and then something …

    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
