  • Perceived effectiveness for Herpes outbreak: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Eczema Herpeticum: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 4000 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This anti-viral was very effective at beating my initial bout of eczema herpeticum but the frequency of doses is difficult to achieve. If you wake up late and don't start the first dose until 9am, the last dose is not until 1am. When you are tired and ill you don't stay up until 1am! I managed to achieve the doses by compressing the schedule to every 3-3.5 hours on the advice of my doctor, but a couple of days went by with only four doses and I felt that this slowed down my recovery. I'm now on Valtrex as it has a better schedule, but so far (72 hours in) it is not as effective as Acyclovir
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Shingles (herpes zoster): Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 800 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I had to take this medication 5 times a day, four 200 mgs caps. It was alittle hard to fit it into all my other medicine doses. I had to make out a schedule & the hours so I could check them off as I took them. But it did help with the pain & it dried out the blisters. It was hard at first to take it, but as time went on, it became alot easier, knowing that it was helping me.
