Description


Uses

Penvir (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. Famciclovir works by inhibiting the action of DNA polymerase, the enzyme that the virus needs to multiply.

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.

Dosage and Administration

Penvir (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.
