Buy ZOVIRAX brand or generic Acyclovir prescription drug from Canada
Why is Zovirax prescribed?
Zovirax, with generic name Acyclovir, is used to reduce pain and facilitate the healing of sores and blisters due to chickenpox (varicella), shingles (herpes zoster), and genital herpes (herpes simplex). It is also used to prevent outbreaks of genital herpes in infected individuals.
What does it do?
Acyclovir belongs to a class of medications called synthetic nucleoside analogs, which inhibits the replication of the virus to limit the spread of the herpes virus in the body. However, it cannot cure, prevent the outbreak, or spread of infection to other people.
How should I take it?
Zovirax is currently available as a 200mg capsule, and 200mg, 400mg, and 800mg tablets taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without food. It is also available as a 200mg/5ml suspension that can be taken with or without food.

It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.

Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking. Discuss your current and previous medical history and any allergic reactions to Zovirax, or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
