John Lee‘s Ekovir 200 is an antibiotic. It contains the antiviral drug Acyclovir as its active ingredient. Acyclovir is a drug that is used in medicine to treat viral infections. Herpes simplex virus infections, chickenpox, and shingles are examples. Bell’s palsy is often treated off-label using it in combination with a steroid (typically Prednisolone). It can also be used to treat acne and the discomfort and inflammation associated with steroid injections.
Effects of Acyclovir
Acyclovir works by preventing viral DNA from multiplying in the body. The drug does not cure the virus in the body, but it helps minimize illness symptoms.
The drug can lessen the severity of symptoms and their duration. It can prevent skin sores and acne from growing and helps them heal much faster when it comes to viral infections. It can also assist to limit the propagation of viruses in persons who have a weak immune system. Acyclovir can also help with sores, acne, and injection sites by reducing discomfort, irritation, and inflammation of the skin.
How to take the antibiotic
Acyclovir dose is greatly dependent on your body’s unique characteristics and the severity of the problem you’re trying to treat. Because the half-life of Acyclovir is 2.5-4 hours, this drug must be taken every 4 hours to be effective.
For acne and inflammation, a usual dosage is 200mg every 4 hours, five times per day, for five days. The typical starting dosage for genital herpes is 200mg every 4 hours, five times per day, for ten days. For recurrent herpes prevention, a typical dose is 400 mg twice a day, every day for up to 12 months. Shingles is usually treated with 800mg every four hours, five times a day for seven to ten days. Chickenpox is usually treated with 800mg four times a day for five days. Begin taking the drug as soon as your first chickenpox symptom occurs.
This drug is available in 200mg tablets from John Lee, therefore a decent dosage to start with is 1 pill and see how your body reacts. It is highly recommended that you drink plenty of water and limit your calcium intake while using this drug.
