Need answers?

Does acyclovir work for genital herpes?
Yes, acyclovir is very effective to stop the spread of the herpes virus in the body as well as manage symptoms. There is no cure for genital herpes.
What is viral shedding?

Viral shedding is where your body produces infectious virus particles and is infectious. At this time, genital herpes can be transmitted to others and is typically accompanied by an outbreak. With asymptomatic shedding, there are no symptoms, which means you can transmit to others without being aware.  

How effective is acyclovir for viral shedding?
Daily treatment with acyclovir is very effective and decreases the rate of transmission in discordant, heterosexual couples that are sexually active. It reduces the amount of shedding and how often it occurs.
Will these medications cure my genital herpes?
There is no cure for genital herpes. A diagnosis of genital herpes means you will have the virus inside your body for life, which hides in your nerve cells. For those with no symptoms, they may never know they have it, putting others at risk.
If I’m on medication, do I still need to protect myself with condoms?
Acyclovir and other genital herpes medications do not replace the need for condoms to protect your partners. Condoms can reduce the risk of transmitting genital herpes but will not eliminate the risk, since viral shedding can occur in places that are not covered by a condom.
Is acyclovir a good fit for everyone?
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to medication. A licensed provider will thoroughly review your health history to choose the safest medication for you.

What dosage of acyclovir is right for me?
Depending on the stage of your herpes virus and your medical history, your Admired provider will decide what dosage is right for you.
How long does acyclovir take and last?
It typically takes 2-3 days to see a reduction in the symptoms of discomfort from genital herpes. It also helps shorten the duration of the outbreak by a couple of days.
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 genital herpes, you will have a stress-free experience. No doctor's visits or waiting rooms, no insurance hassles, and your acyclovir prescription is 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 genital herpes meds. We create a more attainable, affordable, and private option.
Does Admire keep my information confidential?

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

You should not be taking acyclovir if:
If you have hypersensitivity to acyclovir, which is highly unlikely.
Are there side effects when using acyclovir?
The genital herpes treatments we offer are effective medications and when prescribed under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider, are relatively safe for most people. 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?
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.
