Aciclovir is sometimes also spelt as Acyclovir and is better known by the original brand name Zovirax. Aciclovir tablets are an antiviral medication. The tablets reduce herpes virus growth and spread. A 5-day course of aciclovir 400mg tablets will typically reduce the duration of genital herpes sores by one or two days and also reduce severity of symptoms and infectivity. If taken early enough aciclovir may prevent sores from breaking open. Taking aciclovir twice daily for 6-12 months can prevent (suppress) herpes outbreaks.
The best-known brand of aciclovir is Zovirax. A number of different pharmaceutical companies make generic aciclovir, which is medically the same as Zovirax, but at lower prices. Dr Fox pharmacy supplies lower cost generic aciclovir (see generic medicines FAQs).
Aciclovir is also used to treat other herpes family virus infections, particularly chickenpox, shingles, cold sores, and herpes family virus infections in immunocompromised patients. The dose and strength of aciclovir prescribed depends on the specific type of infection being treated.
The aim of treatment is to reduce the severity and duration of the sores by taking antiviral medication each time a new sore breaks out. The most commonly prescribed antiviral medication is aciclovir tablets. Tablets should be started as early as possible once symptoms (tingling, pain) start, preferably within the first 24-48 hours. A course of treatment lasts 5 days.
Aciclovir is not the only antiviral medication. There are alternative antivirals for herpes, namely famciclovir and valaciclovir. These work in the same way as aciclovir, but are less commonly prescribed. They are NOT available from Dr Fox.
A course of aciclovir, or other antiviral medications, does not eliminate the herpes virus completely or prevent future outbreaks. The herpes virus remains in the body after an outbreak, usually for many years, and will continue to produce sores from time to time. There may be months or years between outbreaks of the sores. Sores may break out more when a person is tired or run down, but often there is no pattern to outbreaks. They usually become less frequent over time.
Suppression of genital herpes: the standard dose of treatment for suppression therapy is one aciclovir 400mg tablet twice a day for an initial period of 6 months but can be taken up to 12 months.
One course of treatment for genital herpes is 15 tablets (3 tablets daily for 5 days), and two courses will be 30 tablets. Because medicine boxes come in sizes of 56 tablets these must be split up and supplied in blank boxes of 15 or 30 tablets. This is common practice in pharmacies and nothing to be concerned about.
Other strengths and doses of aciclovir can be prescribed for treating other types of recurrent herpes infections. See your doctor if the standard treatment is not effective or there are new symptoms or side effects.
People over 65 years, and those diagnosed with kidney disease (impaired renal function) and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be able to take aciclovir. Checks are carried out during the Dr Fox online consultations and advice is given. Dr Fox pharmacy supplies medicine to adults only (over 18s). If you are aged under 18 please contact your GP or a local sexual health clinic for testing and treatment.
Allergic reactions (may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people). If you have a severe allergic reaction, stop taking Aciclovir 400mg tablets and contact a doctor (or telephone 999 in the UK) straight away. The signs may include:
The tablets I received DID NOT WORK! Very infuriating being sold fake tablets as my condition only worsened whilst taking them. Paid a stupidly high price for them too. Had to attend a clinic, which I was hoping to avoid by purchasing these tablets from this site. Tablets from the clinic began to work immediately

Aciclovir (Acyclovir) is an antiviral medication used to treat or suppress infections caused by the herpes simplex virus. The antiviral tablets prevent the virus from multiplying, allowing the immune system to effectively suppress the herpes infection over the course of treatment.
Aciclovir is also used in the treatment of other viral infections such as cold sores, chickenpox and shingles (varicella-zoster virus). Our service can prescribe Aciclovir tablets for genital herpes only, for other conditions, visit your GP.
Aciclovir tablets work by targeting the virus when it tries to multiply. It blocks the viruses ability to grow its DNA successfully preventing it from producing more of itself. This greatly reduces the viral load on the body, allowing the immune system to get the upper hand on the herpes infection, treating or suppressing it.
All of the main treatments for genital herpes are anti-virals which work in the same way. The main point of difference is that while Aciclovir needs to be taken three times daily, Valaciclovir and Famciclovir require twice-daily dosage. This makes taking the other treatments slightly easier for those who may struggle to remember the midday dose of Aciclovir.
As with all medicines, aciclovir does have the potential to cause some side effects, although not everyone will experience them. The Common side effects of Aciclovir tablets are stomach pain, diarrhoea, fatigue, headaches, nausea, sensitivity to light and itching.
Aciclovir tablets can be used for viral infections such as cold sores, genital herpes, chickenpox and shingles. Each may require different doses and duration of treatment. Follow your doctor's directions.
You can buy Aciclovir tablets from any UK pharmacy with a prescription from a UK registered doctor. You may request a prescription online from a registered online doctor and pharmacy who can have a UK doctor review your request and provide treatment delivered through the Royal Mail service.
Aciclovir may not be suitable for all people. If you have ever experienced any allergic reactions to antiviral medicines or any listed ingredient of aciclovir, do not take the medicine and consult your doctor for your options.
There are some medicines that may interact with Aciclovir treatment or result in potentially more side effects. It is important that you provide a complete list of your medicines for our doctor when completing your online consultation. In particular cimetidine, probenecid, mycophenolate mofetil and theophylline have notable interactions.
Aciclovir tablets come in various strengths, 200mg, 400mg, and 800mg. A 5-day course of 200mg strength tablets is the recommended course for cold sore treatment. Various brands of tablets are available produced by different drug companies, including Boots, GSK (Zovirax brand), and Actavis. All have the same active ingredient. The shelf life of the medication is several years, which means that people who are prone to cold sores can keep a stand-by supply at home for use as needed.
Take one 200mg tablet 5 times a day at 4 hourly intervals for 5 days, swallowed whole, with or without food. Alternatively dissolve the tablet in a glass of water and stir before drinking. Start tablets as soon as possible after the first signs of a cold sore. It is best to start at the stage when there is tingling and burning, even before the sore is visible. Tablets will still have an effect if started later, but results are best with early treatment. Continue for the full 5-day course. If a tablet is missed, take the next as soon as remembered. Do not take extra tablets to make up for missed doses. Avoid dehydration and drink plenty of water during treatment.
Aciclovir may not be suitable for people with a history of seizures or kidney disease. Aciclovir can interact with some prescribed medicines such as probenecid used to treat gout and cimetidine for acid indigestion, and also increase the dose received of theophylline and aminophylline sometimes used for asthma. These and other more theoretical interactions with mycophenolate, ciclosporin, and zidovudine are unlikely to be significant at the dose used to treat cold sores. You may need to discuss taking aciclovir alongside these medications with your own doctor. Checks are carried out during the online consultation.
Not everybody gets side effects. The most common, occurring in less than 1 in 10, are dizziness, headache, irritation, rash, itching skin, tiredness, nausea and sickness, diarrhoea, stomach pain, and fever and skin reaction after exposure to light (photosensitivity). See the manufacturer's leaflet for a full list of side effects. If there is a very rare allergic type reaction with swelling of the lips, face, or eyelids, or shortness of breath with wheeze, stop taking tablets and seek immediate medical assistance.
