What is acyclovir? Acyclovir is an antiviral
drug. It slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can
fight off the infection. Acyclovir will not cure herpes, but it can lessen the
symptoms of the infection. Acyclovir is used to treat infections caused by
herpes viruses. Illnesses caused by herpes viruses include genital herpes, cold
sores, shingles, and chicken pox. Acyclovir may also be used for purposes other
than those listed in this medication guide.
Please consult your personal physician before you start taking any type of medication.
