Famvir Uses:

Famvir tablets are used to treat herpes zoster, commonly referred to as ""shingles," in adults. Shingles is a painful rash with raised, red pimples on the trunk of the body, usually the back. Because it is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox, only people who have had chickenpox can get shingles. When prescribed for shingles, Famvir works best in people age 50 or over. Famvir is also prescribed to treat attacks of genital herpes and to prevent future flare-ups. For people with HIV infections, it is used as a treatment for both genital and oral herpes.

Famvir Dosage:

Recurrent Genital Herpes Prevention The usual dose is 250 mg twice a day for up to one year. Famvir therapy to prevent genital herpes has not been tested for periods exceeding one year. Recurrent Oral Contraceptives or Genital Herpes in HIV-infected Individuals The usual dose is 500 mg twice a day for 7 days. Smaller doses are prescribed for people with damaged kidneys.
