What are the benefits of using Famvir for shingles?
Famvir can reduce your healing time from shingles by two to three days and soothe the symptoms to make the condition less painful. Unlike other anti-viral treatments, Famvir can also reduce the pain caused in your nerves during and after an outbreak of the virus. Famvir is also proven to be better tolerated by most users, making it a better treatment for those over 50 years of age. Famvir is a single once-a-day treatment, taken for just seven days.
How do I take Famvir for shingles?
Famvir should be taken as soon as you experience symptoms associated with an outbreak of the virus, ideally within 48 hours. Symptoms are not always visible; symptoms of an attack can include a burning or tingling pain, numbness, fever, chills, a headache or an upset stomach.
The usual dosage is one 500mg tablets taken three times a day taken for seven days. Take each tablet with a full glass of water, ideally at the same time each day.
Will Famvir cause side effects?
Famvir may cause side effects in a minority of users. The more common of these effects include headaches, diarrhoea, nausea, fatigue and menstrual cramps.
Patients with kidney, liver or galactose problems may not be able to use Famvir. Research suggests that anti-viral medications will not cause birth defects; however, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be prescribed this treatment.
