Valtrex 500mg Tablets FAQs
Sex should be avoided while using any medication for herpes as there is a chance you may pass the virus on to other people. Herpes is very contagious and you can infect others even while using Valtrex. If you do have sex, make sure to use a condom that provides protection against STIs in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Do not let infected areas come into contact with other people, and avoid touching your eyes after touching the infection. Wash your hands as regularly as possible. This medication should not be shared with others, even if they are suffering from the same condition.
In rare cases Valtrex can harm your kidneys. The chance of this happening increases if you are using other medications, including:
- Injected antibiotics
- Bowel disorder medication
- Transplant rejection medication
- Injected osteoporosis medication
- Some pain medication such as aspirin, Tylenol, and Advil
Some other drugs may also interfere with Valtrex, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements. Always inform your healthcare professional as to anything you are taking before beginning a course of new medication.
