  1. Antiviral Activity: Famciclovir belongs to a class of medications known as antiviral drugs. It works by inhibiting the replication of herpes viruses, thereby reducing the severity and duration of outbreaks.

  2. Treatment of Herpes Simplex Virus Infections: Famciclovir is used to treat outbreaks of oral herpes (cold sores) and genital herpes. It helps alleviate symptoms such as pain, itching, burning, and tingling associated with herpes lesions.

  3. Suppressive Therapy: Famciclovir can be prescribed for long-term suppressive therapy to prevent recurrent episodes of genital herpes in individuals with frequent outbreaks. It helps reduce the frequency and severity of recurrences.

  4. Treatment of Herpes Zoster (Shingles): Famciclovir is effective in the treatment of herpes zoster, commonly known as shingles. It helps reduce pain, shorten the duration of the rash, and prevent complications such as postherpetic neuralgia.

  5. Early Treatment of Shingles: When initiated within 72 hours of the onset of shingles rash, famciclovir can help accelerate the healing process and reduce the risk of complications.

  6. Reduction of Viral Shedding: Famciclovir can decrease the shedding of herpes viruses from the skin and mucous membranes, which helps reduce the risk of transmitting the virus to others during outbreaks.

  7. Prevention of Herpes Transmission: In addition to treating active infections, famciclovir may also be used to reduce the risk of transmitting genital herpes to sexual partners when taken consistently as suppressive therapy.

  8. Well-Tolerated: Famciclovir is generally well-tolerated, with common side effects being mild and transient. These may include headache, nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness.

  9. Safety in Pregnancy and Lactation: Famciclovir is classified as Pregnancy Category B, indicating that it is generally safe for use during pregnancy when the potential benefits outweigh the risks. However, pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should consult their healthcare provider before taking famciclovir.

  10. Interactions: Famciclovir may interact with certain medications, including probenecid and nephrotoxic drugs. It's important to inform your healthcare provider about all medications you are taking before starting famciclovir.

  11. Resistance: Prolonged or repeated use of famciclovir can lead to the development of drug-resistant strains of herpes viruses. It's essential to use famciclovir as directed and avoid unnecessary or prolonged use.

Impact of famciclovir,(prescription) on Conditions from US National Library of Medicine

A higher number indicates impact on more bacteria associated with the condition and confidence on the impact.

We have X bacteria high and Y low reported. We find that the modifier reduces some and increases other of these two groups. We just tally: X|reduces + Y|Increase = Positive   X|increases + Y|decrease = Negative.

Benefit Ratio:
Numbers above 0 have increasing positive effect.
Numbers below 0 have increasing negative effect.
