Need answers?

Does acyclovir work?
Yes, acyclovir is a popular treatment for cold sores. While it is more advantageous to take it as soon as you have symptoms, it can be used at any stage.
Will these medications cure my cold sores?
There is no cure for cold sores. The virus that causes cold sores lives inside the body for life. For those with no symptoms, they may never know they have it, putting others at risk.
Is acyclovir a good fit for everyone?
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to medication. A licensed provider will help you understand the best medication for your cold sores based on your medical history.
What dosage of acyclovir is right for me?
Depending on your medical history, a licensed provider will decide what dosage is right for you.
Why should I purchase acyclovir from Admired instead of my local pharmacy?
While the medication is the same, when you choose Admired to treat your cold sores, you will have a stress-free experience. No doctor's visits or waiting rooms, no insurance hassles, and cold sore prescriptions are discreetly delivered to your door. Get back to being you again.
Do I need insurance to purchase medications?
With Admired, you do not need any form of insurance, which makes for a much easier path to get your medication versus going to your doctor and then your local drugstore. We create a more feasible, convenient, and affordable option.
Does Admire keep my information confidential?

Yes. Please refer to our privacy policy to understand how we protect your privacy.

Are there side effects when using acyclovir?
The cold sore treatments we offer are effective medications and, when prescribed under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider, are relatively safe. A licensed provider will thoroughly review your health history and your current health status to ensure our treatments are right for you.
Are there any medications that interact with ED medications?
The ED medications we offer are effective medications and, when prescribed under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider, are relatively safe. Our licensed doctors will evaluate your current medication prescriptions during intake to ensure you are the right candidate for ED medications. If you are already taking nitrates, you should not be taking ED medications. If you are prescribed alpha-adrenergic inhibitors such as doxazosin, prazosin, tamsulosin, or alfuzosin, often prescribed to treat hypertension or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), known as an enlarged prostate, combining the two medications can cause low blood pressure.
