Valcivir works by stopping the virus from spreading, reducing the number of painful blisters and also helps them to heal quickly.

3. What is Valcivir 500mg Tablet?

Valcivir works by slowing the growth and spread of the herpes virus to allow the immune system to treat the infection. The active ingredient valacyclovir belongs to a class of medication called antivirals. The tablets can be used to treat conditions caused by varicella zoster, herpes zoster and herpes simplex such as chickenpox, shingles, cold sores and genital herpes. It can be used to relieve itching and pain, helps sores heal and prevent new ones from forming but cannot be used to cure herpes infections.

4. Mechanism Action Of Valcivir 500mg?

Valcivir tablets 500mg contain valacyclovir, a prodrug of acyclovir that is more readily absorbed and is converted to acyclovir by the liver. 

Valacyclovir in Valcivir tablets 500mg then works in the same way as acyclovir, as an antiviral agent that is highly active against both types of herpes simplex virus, HSV-I, that causes cold sores and HSV-II that causes genital herpes; and also against the closely related varicella zoster herpes virus that causes chicken pox and shingles. 

Acyclovir inhibits the action of a viral enzyme (DNA polymerase), blocking viral DNA synthesis without affecting normal cellular processes. 

This prevents the virus replicating and therefore, stops the growth and spread of the virus, relieving symptoms of the infection and helping the body to fight off the infection. 

Valcivir tablets 500mg will not cure a herpes infection, as the virus can lie dormant in infected cells until reactivated when immunity is low by stress, other illness or even exposure to sunlight, causing new infections like cold sores and shingles; but it does reduce pain and help the sores caused by the infection to heal faster.
