When taking Acyclovir you have to take it twice a day. It should be taken as close as possible 12 hours apart for best results. To learn the differences of each drug and what the dosages are read the Herpes Handbook located as noted below There should be no real problems and the feeling should be about the same as Valtrex/Valacyclovir.
To learn more read the Herpes Handbook. Terri Warren's book The Good News about the Bad News. It is available now as am e-book. Click on my avatar to get more details.
