Valtrex is an antiviral medication. It only reduces the symptoms of the viral infection by arresting its growth and spread in the body. It does not cure the infection.


& Dosage

Please ask for precise dosage instructions to your healthcare provider.

Treatment should be started as soon as the first symptoms of chickenpox start to appear.

The drug is an antiviral medication that needs to be taken for a stipulated period of time for it to be effective. Do not discontinue dosage suddenly without speaking to your doctor. Also, do not take the medication for a prolonged time period.

Try to take the medication at the same time everyday to avoid missing a dose. If you have missed a dose and it is almost time for the next dose, then skip the missed one and continue with the regular dosage. Alternatively, if you remember immediately, then you may take the missed dose. Never double up to compensate for a missed dose.


Store Valtrex at room temperature in a cool and dark place. Keep away from children and pets.
