Antiviral drug, a synthetic analogue of thymidine nucleoside, which has a highly selective effect on herpes viruses. Inside the cells infected with the virus, under the action of viral thymidine kinase, a number of successive reactions of the transformation of acyclovir into acyclovir mono-, di- and triphosphate take place. Acyclovir triphosphate is incorporated into the viral DNA chain and blocks its synthesis by competitive inhibition of viral DNA polymerase.
The specificity and very high selectivity of action are also due to its predominant accumulation in cells affected by the herpes virus. Highly active against the Herpes simplex virus type 1 and 2; the virus that causes chickenpox and shingles (Varicella zoster); Epstein-Barr virus (types of viruses are listed in ascending order of the minimum inhibitory concentration of acyclovir). Moderately active against cytomegalovirus.
In case of herpes, it prevents the formation of new elements of the rash, reduces the likelihood of cutaneous dissemination and visceral complications, accelerates the formation of crusts, and reduces pain in the acute phase of herpes zoster.
Aciclovir is a synthetic compound used to treat certain types of viral infections. It does not cure viral infections but instead treats symptoms; lessening the severity and duration, and in some cases preventing recurrent episodes altogether.

Acyclovir belongs to a class of medications known as synthetic nucleoside analogues. Acyclovir has been observed to have activity against herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2 as well as the varicella-zoster virus. Acyclovir is thought to work by blocking replication of herpes viral DNA through disrupting enzymes and the viral DNA itself. Acyclovir itself is generally used for the acute treatment of shingles, the treatment of genital herpes, and the treatment of chickenpox in selected patients and is being investigated for other uses. Acyclovir is similar to the antiviral medications famciclovir and valacyclovir (Valtrex). However, valacyclovir is the prodrug of acyclovir and tends to be more bioavailable. Viruses can become resistant to acyclovir and this often occurs because of changes in enzymes in the viruses. Acyclovir is sometimes used in the management of cold sores.
Aciclovir tablets are an antiviral medication that is used to treat genital herpes outbreaks. It also works well against cold sores and it can be applied as a longer-term preventative treatment.

Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) infections
Epstein Barr Virus
Genital Herpes episodes
In cream form Aciclovir may also be used to treat cold sores on the lips or face.
How Does it Work?
Aciclovir interacts with an enzyme found in certain types of viruses, which interferes with the ability of the virus to replicate and thrive. In other words, Aciclovir helps suppress the virus so the immune system can better combat the outbreak.
Some viral infections, such as genital herpes, are incurable. Aciclovir will lessen the severity and duration of outbreaks but will not cure the infection.
How is it Taken?
Aciclovir is available as a capsule, tablet, liquid form, and cream.
Aciclovir is not absorbed into the bloodstream very well, so it may need to be taken as often as 5 times a day. Frequency and dosage strength will vary widely between patients and depends on the condition being treated. Physician instructions should be followed carefully for best results.
Patients treating recurrent episodes typically have the medication on hand and begin taking it as soon as symptoms are noticed. Treatment may continue for several days or weeks depending the condition being treated and severity of the outbreak.
For other viral infections this medication may be taken for weeks or months at a stretch regardless of symptoms.
It is important to stay hydrated while taking Aciclovir to maximize effectiveness and mitigate potential side effects.
