Acyclovir and fatigue?

Recommended Posts


I have been taking 500mg acyclovir to prevent outbreaks for over seven years. Recently, every time I take it I have the most extreme fatigue I’ve ever experienced. I can’t get out of bed, I can barely open my eyes. Has this happened to anyone else on this drug before? It’s affecting my quality of life to the point that I can no longer take it and just have to deal with outbreaks. This has been going on for the last six months. 

Thanks in advance for any answers or advice

I’m taking a generic form of Valtrex 500 msg a day for 3 mths and I stopped taking it because it was causing me headaches and my skin is extremely dry it’s causing me to be really dehydrated. Plus I was getting a sore throat. I figured I would see what happens if I stopped taking it and just continue with my herbal supplements and vitamins and hopefully they will help me without taking any medication
