Herpes Famciclovir Famtrex

Uses
Famtrex (Famciclovir) is an antiviral medication, which is used to treat genital herpes outbreaks, shingles (herpes zoster) and cold sores. It may also be taken by patients to prevent outbreaks of genital herpes. Genital herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus, which can cause sores to appear around the anus and genitals. Taking this medicine helps to heal these sores, while also reducing pain and itching. The active ingredient in this medication works by inhibiting the action of DNA polymerase, the enzyme that the virus needs to multiply.

Dosage and Administration
Famtrex (Famciclovir) comes as 250mg tablets. You will need to visit your doctor so that the correct dosage can be prescribed to you. The exact dosage prescribed will be based on your medical condition, as well as other factors. Adults who are treating herpes zoster are often directed to take 500mg every 8 hours. Treatment is usually started within 48 hours after symptoms are noticed, and can last for 7 days.

Initial outbreaks of genital herpes are sometimes treated with 250mg, taken 3 times per day for a period of 7 to 10 days. Repeat outbreaks may be treated with 1000mg taken twice per day for 1 day, or else 125mg, taken twice per day for a period of 5 days. Patients preventing herpes outbreaks are often told to take 250mg twice per day, however, those with HIV may need a higher dose. It is possible that the patient will be told to take it for up to 1 year.

Side effects
Treating viral infections with Famtrex (Famciclovir) can sometimes cause side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Itchy sensation
  • Pain in the stomach
  • Menstrual period pain
  • Fatigue or drowsiness

While you are taking this medicine, it is recommended that you inform your doctor of any side effects which occur. Remember that serious side effects have sometimes been reported by patients taking this drug. See your doctor immediately if you notice hallucinations, severe pain or numbness affecting the feet or hands, unusual weight gain or any other signs of a serious reaction.

Precautions
Taking this medication will not prevent transmitting genital herpes to others. You are advised not to engage in sexual intercourse during an outbreak, and to always use a barrier method of protection when you have no symptoms, as it is still possible to transmit genital herpes when no symptoms are present.

If you have any problems related to the immune system, such as HIV or AIDS, you should inform your doctor before you take this medicine.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Famtrex (Famciclovir) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
