Valtrex is an oral antiviral that treats the 3 most common forms of the herpes virus. Valtrex (valaciclovir, also spelt valacyclovir) helps lessen the symptoms within 2-3 days and reduces recovery time. This treatment is most effective when used within 24-48 hours of symptoms appearing.
Valtrex is an antiviral medicine available to buy online that is clinically proven to successfully treat infections caused by the herpes virus. This includes the herpes simplex virus (HSV-2, more commonly referred to as genital herpes), herpes labialis (HSV-1, also known as cold sores) and herpes zoster (most regularly identified as shingles or chickenpox.
The active ingredient in Valtrex is valaciclovir, which works to prevent the virus from multiplying and spreading during an outbreak, allowing your body to fight back more effectively. This means you recover faster, experience less severe symptoms and can also reduce the number of recurrent episodes.
Valtrex is essentially the same as its counterparts Famvir and Aciclovir, however, they contain different active ingredients. Valtrex is the most popular, however, they are all just as effective as each other.

Valtrex is an antiviral oral medicine in a hard capsule form that should always take for the full length of time, regardless of whether the symptoms subside during the course.
Every dosage can be taken with or without food, ideally with a glass of water and at the same time(s) every day until the course has finished. Each tablet is 500mg, which is the perfect dose to combat the virus and therefore will be most effective if taken at a similar time every day.
It is also advised to drink plenty of fluids whilst taking this medication to avoid dehydration, especially if you’re elderly.
If you miss a dosage, do not take a double dose to combat the mistake if it is nearly time to take your next tablet. Just continue as normal until the treatment finishes. If you remember long before your next dosage, take the tablet as soon as possible.
The sooner you take the medication, the more effective it will be so grabbing treatment quickly is essential in easing the discomfort. As Valtrex valaciclovir can be taken for various viral infections, it differs in how depending on if it is general health or sexual related:
- For cold sores (initial outbreak) –Take two 500mg pills per day for up to 10 days
- For cold sores (recurrent outbreak) –Take two 500mg pills per days for 3-5 days
- For shingles –Take two 500mg tablets 3 times per day for 7 days
- For genital herpes (initial outbreak) –Take one 500mg tablet twice a day for up to 10 days
- For genital herpes (recurrent outbreaks) –Take two 500mg tablets per day for 3-5 days
To buy prescription treatment online in the UK, you must be over the age of 18 and complete a quick consultation to make sure the treatment is perfect for you.
If you experience regular outbreaks of genital herpes, you may be able to use Valtrex as a preventative treatment. However, you may not be able to use this particular drug if you have conditions that affect your immune system, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Make sure that you mention all the relevant details about your medical history and the medications you are taking, during your consultation.
Valaciclovir belongs to the group classification of drugs known as ‘pro-drug’. This means that it changes and adapts when it’s inside the body to become more powerful. When valaciclovir is absorbed into the system, it evolves into another form called acyclovir that makes it far more effective at treating many strains of the herpes virus.
Acyclovir works by targeting the virus cells to stop it from duplicating – this is its main purpose. As the virus is halted and therefore vulnerable, this allows your body’s natural defences to fight back.
Valtrex interact with Probenecid (Benemid) and cimetidine (Tagamet, Tagamet HB). Also, note that interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. As usual, it affects the the effect of drugs, so consult with your doctor about how it interactions are being managed or should be managed.
Valtrex is not allowed in people with kidney disease or blood disorders. Also, it is contraindicated in people who are hypersensitive to any components of this drug.
Dosages are always clinically checked to be as effective as possible whilst posing minimal risk to your health. The only dosage available to buy online is Valtrex valaciclovir 500mg that should be taken with a glass of water. The frequency and number of tablets can change depending on why you are using valaciclovir and is detailed just above. 500mg is the recommended dosage, however, 1,000mg is available if you have severe symptoms and/or have found the 500mg pills to be ineffective.
- Missed Dose
- If you forgot to take your dose in time, please do it as soon as you remember. But do not take if it is too late or almost time for your next dose. Do not take double or extra doses. Take your usual dose next day at the same time regularly.
Symptoms of Valtrex overdose are not known. So if you experience any unusual symptom, call your doctor immediately.
As with all prescription medication, there is a small risk of side effects, however even the most common ones only happen to 10% of users, and Valtrex, in particular, is extremely tolerant.
Those classed as ‘common’ include;
- Headaches or dizziness
- Nausea and stomach pain, menstrual pain, or a mild skin rash
Uncommon side effects include the following;
- Hallucinations, mood changes, difficulty speaking
- Changes in urine production and increased shaking.
Rare side effects that require immediate action include;
- Fainting, bloody diarrhoea, vomiting and red spots on the skin
As mentioned, side effects aren’t common with the ‘rare’ side effects only occurring in 1 in 1000 people, but if you are concerned or are experiencing anything severe, seeking immediate medical help is advised.
If you are taking this treatment and require additional medical attention – if you’re coming down with the flu for example – then you must tell your doctor just in case the antibiotics react negatively with the active ingredient valaciclovir. In addition, you should always read the patient leaflet before taking any prescription meds, which is available at the bottom of this page.
As with any virus, as you will know, it is incurable. This means taking any medication will not eliminate the possibility of you transferring it to your partner and additional precautions should be practised.In terms of your sexual health, intercourse should be avoided, as should kissing when a cold sore is present.
