What is valacyclovir?

A valacyclovir prescription is used in the treatment of a group of viruses commonly known as herpes viruses. This includes cold sores and genital herpes (herpes simplex 1 and 2) and shingles (herpes zoster). Valacyclovir is an antiviral medication that cannot cure HSV but can help alleviate symptoms, treat active flare-ups, and prevent breakouts.

How does valacyclovir work?

A valacyclovir prescription works by making it more difficult for the virus to reproduce in your body. Disrupting how the virus can replicate and spread in the body can treat both the symptoms and the outbreak. Valacyclovir cannot cure herpes viruses, but it can lower the chances of the virus spreading to other people.

   

In Canada, valacyclovir is available by prescription only.

Questions about Valacyclovir?

We have answers.

What is Valacyclovir and what does it do?

Valacyclovir is a medication used to manage outbreaks of cold sores and herpes. It is an antiviral, meaning it works to slow down the spread of a virus (in this case, the herpes simplex virus). It can also be used in the management of shingles.

Valacyclovir is sold under several brand names, the most common of which is Valtrex®.

What does Valacyclovir do?

Valacyclovir works through a complex chemical process that interferes with the way the herpes virus reproduces, preventing it from multiplying and reducing the rate at which the infection spreads.

In short, Valacyclovir limits the spread of the herpes virus to healthy cells, reducing the effects of the virus.

How to take Valacyclovir?

Valacyclovir is taken orally in pill form. It works best if taken within 48 hours after seeing the signs of symptoms.

What is the dosage of Valacyclovir?

Valacyclovir is available in 500mg and 1000mg doses.

What are the side effects of Valacyclovir?

Valacyclovir can cause headaches, agitation or confusion, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fatigue. 

If you develop side effects please discuss it with a doctor. If urgent, please see a doctor in person.

Who should not take Valacyclovir?

Valacyclovir should not be used if you have any kidney or liver disease without further assessment by a doctor.

What is the difference between Valacyclovir and Acyclovir?

Acyclovir and Valacyclovir belong to a class of medications called antiviral drugs and are both used to treat cold sores and herpes.

Both work to speed up recovery during an oral or genital herpes outbreak and reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to other people.

The main difference between the two treatment options is the higher bioavailability of Valacyclovir. This just means more of the drug makes it into your body to then take effect.

The other key difference between Valacyclovir and Acyclovir is that Valacyclovir requires you to take fewer doses per day.

How to get a valacyclovir prescription

To get a valacyclovir prescription you need to speak to a licensed healthcare practitioner who writes the prescription for you. Typically, valacyclovir works best when taken within 24 hours of the first symptoms of genital herpes or cold sores. This means that if you have genital herpes or cold sores it’s a good idea to have valacyclovir on hand for when you get a breakout so that you don’t have to waste any time getting your medication. Your doctor can write a prescription, or you can use an online healthcare provider like Felix to skip to the doctor and get your prescription without leaving home. Valacyclovir is widely used by many people who have a herpes infection, so you shouldn’t have any problems getting a prescription, except in a few very rare cases where a medical issue can make using valacyclovir unadvisable. Once you’ve got your prescription, you can use Felix to order valacyclovir directly to your home so you can skip the trip to your pharmacy. Already have a prescription from your doctor? Transfer it to Felix for free and start ordering valacyclovir online. You can cross getting your prescription refilled off your to-do list for good, with regular deliveries at an interval that works for you.

Do you need a prescription for valacyclovir?

Yes, you need a prescription for valacyclovir in Canada. This is a widely used drug for the treatment of breakouts caused by a herpes simplex infection, also known as genital herpes, or herpes labialis, known as cold sores. Many people use valacyclovir safely and enjoy the relief it gives them from the discomfort of herpes breakouts, but as is the case with all medications, there is a small chance of side effects. To ensure that you’re informed about the side effects and that valacyclovir is the best choice for you, a healthcare practitioner needs to write you a prescription based on your unique situation. You can talk to your family doctor, a relevant specialist such as a dermatologist, or use an online healthcare platform like Felix to get your prescription. Unlike other options, Felix lets you skip the doctor’s visit and have an online visit instead from the comfort of your home. With your prescription from Felix, you can then order valacyclovir through the website and have it delivered to your home at an interval that suits your needs. If you already have a prescription, you can have it transferred to Felix for free to enjoy all the perks of ordering your medication online.

Can I get valacyclovir over the counter?

You cannot get valacyclovir over the counter in Canada. This treatment for breakouts of cold sores or genital herpes is only available with a prescription. In Canada, only licensed healthcare professionals are allowed to write prescriptions. This means that to get valacyclovir you’ll need to speak to a healthcare practitioner or use an online platform like Felix Health that allows you to get prescriptions from doctors easily online. If you already have a prescription you can also transfer it over to Felix for free so that you can start ordering your valacyclovir directly from Felix online. You can have the medication delivered to your home at a regular interval that works for you so that you never have to worry about running out to get it when you start to feel that familiar tingle. With both cold sores and genital herpes, taking valacyclovir as early as possible when you start to feel a breakout forming can help to reduce its severity and duration. The easiest way to do this is by always having valacyclovir on hand. With Felix, it’s easy to make sure you never run out. Just set up an online visit, have it reviewed by a doctor within 24 hours, and access easy online ordering.
