WHAT IS FAMCICLOVIR ?
Famciclovir is an antiviral drug. It slows the growth and spread of the herpes virus so that the body can fight off the infection. Famciclovir will not cure herpes, but it can lessen the symptoms of the infections.
Famciclovir is used in treatment of recurrent viral infections such as cold sores/fever blisters due to Herpes labialis (infection on lips caused by the herpes simplex virus), genital herpes (herpes virus infection that causes sores to and around the genitals and rectum), and shingles (herpes zoster or ophthalmic zoster) in healthy (immunocompetent) adults. Famciclovir is also used in HIV-infected and immune compromised adults for treatment of recurrent episodes of orolabial (infection of the mouth area caused by the herpes simplex virus) or genital herpes.
