Valtrex prescription FAQs

  • How much does Valtrex cost?

    The cost of Valtrex can differ based on the specific dosage strength and the number of capsules you are prescribed. A higher dose of the medication will cost more. If you need to use Valtrex for a more extended period, it will also be a monthly expense. 

  • How can I refill my Valtrex prescription?

    There are two primary methods that you can use to refill a prescription of Valtrex. This includes a local pharmacy, as well as online prescription filling services. 

  • What should I avoid while taking Valtrex?

    Try to avoid or limit alcohol consumption when you use Valtrex. You should also avoid the use of any medication that can have an impact on kidney health. Valtrex affects the kidneys, further increasing the risk of kidney problems. 

  • What time of day should I take Valtrex?

    The ideal timing for Valtrex depends on the number of doses you should take per day. You usually take the tablet in the morning, but your healthcare provider might make other suggestions. 

  • How many days in a row can you take Valtrex?

    The dosage time depends on the condition that is being treated with Valtrex. The most extended treatment time is for genital herpes, which usually lasts for around 10 consecutive days. If you have recurrent herpes, you might be provided a prescription for only three days. The doctor will analyze the severity of your condition and consider the ideal course duration based on this information. 

  • How many hours apart should you take Valtrex?

    It is important not to take two doses too close to each other. You should usually allow at least 12 hours to pass before taking the next dose. This accounts for cases where you treat cold sores and any other herpes infections.

  • Who should not take Valtrex?

    Valtrex is not advised for people who have existing kidney disease. This could cause a worsening of the problems that you currently experience with your kidneys. You should also not take Valtrex if you are already receiving treatment for a viral infection associated with herpes. 

  • What happens if I miss a dose of Valtrex?

    Take the missed dose, but not if it is within a two hour period of the next dose that you need to take. You should not take a double dose to compensate for the missed dose. If it is too close to the next dose, then skip the missed dose.

  • What happens if I take too much Valtrex?

    Never take more Valtrex than what your doctor prescribed. A high dose of the active chemicals can lead to more severe side effects. It can also increase the risk of the more serious adverse effects associated with the drug. You can call your local poison control center for medical assistance.
