Acyclovir Drug Information

Medication Information: Acyclovir is used to treat two common viral infections: chickenpox and herpes simplex. Chickenpox (shingles) virus causes chickenpox and shingles, and herpes simplex virus (genital herpes) causes cold sores and genital herpes. This drug reduces the severity of the infection and stops its spread by preventing the virus from multiplying. In addition to treating infections, acyclovir can be prescribed to prevent some viral infections. These infections often occur in people with low immune systems.

Although some types of herpes infections (for example, cold sores) can be treated with creams or ointments, more severe infections require pills and medication.
