What is Valtrex?

Valtrex is a highly effective medication used in the treatment of infections caused by the herpes virus and is available to buy online here at OnlineClinic. To be more specific, Valtrex can treat herpes simplex virus (genital herpes), herpes labialis (cold sores) and herpes zoster (shingles or chickenpox). How many to take and at what frequency can vary dependant on the type of herpes you have. Our doctors will be able to advise the dosage you require when buying Valtrex (valacyclovir) online.

Valtrex is taken orally in the form of a 500mg tablet and can be purchased by individuals over the age of 18. Valtrex can treat any uncomfortable or painful symptoms associated with herpes virus and prevent any future outbreaks.

Valtrex is treating herpes. This means that the duration of a cold sore will be reduced to just 1-2 days after only one dosage. Also, when taking Valtrex, the spread of a rash will be decreased by almost a third. Valtrex tablets should alleviate symptoms of herpes within just three days.

Short facts about Valtrex
How to take

For the first outbreak of genital herpes, take two 500mg tablets daily for 10 days.
For recurrent outbreaks, take two 500mg tablets daily for 3-5 days.
For long-term treatment, one 500mg tablet daily is required.

How it works

Valacyclovir (the active ingredient) blocks a viral enzyme that is required by the herpes virus to copy its genetic material in order to multiply and spread from cell to cell.
As a result of this, the virus will be prevented from spreading and the damage will be reduced. It also gives your body all the time it needs to fight off any symptoms.


Valtrex is very well tolerated and can decrease painful symptoms, such as itchiness and discomfort. It lowers the number of recurrent outbreaks and will prevent the formation of new sores.


Valtrex is currently available to buy in a recommended 500mg dosage.

Side effects

Side effects aren't very common, but may include nausea and headaches, as well as stomach pain, depression and vomiting.

How does Valtrex work?

Valtrex contains an ingredient called valacyclovir hydrochloride. Once your body absorbs the tablet, it changes into its active state, known as acyclovir. Acyclovir works by blocking a viral enzyme called DNA polymerase. The herpes virus needs this enzyme to copy its genetic material to multiply and spread from cell to cell. By preventing the virus from spreading, the damage it causes is not only reduced, but it also gives your body's immune system the time it needs to effectively fight the symptoms that have appeared. This helps you to reduce the severity of an attack and to reduce any painful symptoms.

How to take Valtrex?

The dosage you need to take will depend very much on your condition, which your doctor will recommend upon ordering and is also detailed in the patient leaflet attached at the right of this page:

  • To treat shingles, take two 500mg tablets three times a day for seven days.
  • To treat an initial outbreak of cold sores, take two 500mg tablets per day for up to ten days. If you experience recurrent outbreaks, these can be treated with the same two 500mg tablet dosage, but for three to five days.
  • To treat the first outbreak of genital herpes, take two 500mg tablets daily for up to ten days.
  • To treat recurrent outbreaks of genital herpes, take two 500mg tablets daily for between three and five days. When taken as a long-term treatment, just one 500mg tablet daily is necessary.


Currently the only dosage we have available to buy online from OnlineClinic at this time is 500mg that is the recommended dose. However, if 500mg has proven to be ineffective, or if you are experiencing severe symptoms of herpes, 1,000mg tablets are available directly from your GP.

Side effects and precautions

Some users of Valtrex valacyclovir may experience side effects, although it's generally well tolerated by the vast majority. The most common side effects that can potentially occur when taking Valtrex tablets include headaches or nausea. Other possible side effects may include abdominal pain, painful periods, vomiting, dizziness, joint pain, stomach pain and depression. Less than 10% of users experience one of these side effects. People taking the drug find that mild side effects can occur in the beginning, however they disappear very quickly as the body adapts to the medication. If any of these potential side effects occur and persist, you should talk to a doctor or your local GP to discuss your condition.

When taking Valtrex tablets, it is important to take into account the following precautions, in order to ensure your safety:

  • People with a disease or impairment of the kidneys or liver may not be able to use Valtrex.
  • People with immune disorders, such as HIV, may also be advised against using this treatment.
  • While antiviral medications are not thought to cause birth defects, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may be recommended an alternative treatment.
  • Depression can be a side effect of Valtrex, so make sure you mention if you suffer from this condition in your online consultation.
  • The blood level of this medication might be increased if you are using medicines such as cimetidine, mycophenolate, probenecid, and tenofovir.
  • Alcohol consumption should be limited whilst taking Valtrex tablets.
  • If this medication makes you feel dizzy, you should avoid driving, using machinery, or partaking in any activities that require a high level of alertness whilst you are taking Valtrex.

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
