Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Acyclovir is an antiviral drug that works by inhibiting DNA polymerase in viruses, specifically the Herpes simplex virus (the cause of genital herpes) and Varicella zoster (the cause of chickenpox and shingles). These drugs are not classified as over-the-counter drugs, so their consumption is only safe if it is preceded by a doctor's examination and supervision. In a free forum like this, it is not appropriate for us to explain in detail the procedures for consuming this drug.
Acyclovir's metabolism is not influenced by food. Therefore, you can take this medicine, both before, together, or after eating. However, the consumption of this drug is close to other drugs, can cause negative interactions. Therefore, to minimize the negative effects that may be caused, you should consult with your doctor or skin specialist who prescribe it.
Hope this helps ...
