This medicine is indicated for the treatment and prevention of viral infection caused by herpes viruses (HSV and VZV): herpes zoster (shingles), first-episode and recurrent genital herpes infection, herpes labialis (cold sores), herpes B, chickenpox, infectious mononucleosis, to prevent cytomegalovirus following a kidney and other organ transplantation, for prophylaxis against herpesviruses in immunocompromised people (such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy), to reduce HSV transmission from people with recurrent infection to uninfected individuals. Valacyclovir works by disrupting the herpes virus reproduction and its spreading to other cells in the body. It helps to keep the virus inactive.

    Indications and usage:

    Valtrex (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride) is indicated for:

    Adult Patients

  • Cold Sores (Herpes Labialis)
  • Genital Herpes:

    - Treatment in immunocompetent patients (initial or recurrent episode)
    - Suppression in immunocompetent or HIV-1?infected patients
    - Reduction of transmission

  • Herpes Zoster

    Pediatric Patients

  • Cold Sores (Herpes Labialis)
  • Chickenpox

    Limitations of Use

    The efficacy and safety of Valtrex tablets have not been established in immunocompromised patients other than for the suppression of genital herpes in HIV-1-infected patients.


    Dosage and administration:

    Adult Dosage

    Cold Sores: 2 grams every 12 hours for 1 day.

    Genital Herpes

  • Initial episode: 1 gram twice daily for 10 days.
  • Recurrent episodes: 500 mg twice daily for 3 days.
  • Suppressive therapy:

    - Immunocompetent patients: 1 gram once daily
    - Alternate dose in patients with less than or equal to 9 recurrences/year: 500 mg once daily
    - HIV-1-infected patients: 500 mg twice daily

  • Reduction of transmission: 500 mg once daily.

    Herpes Zoster

    1 gram 3 times daily for 7 days.

    Pediatric Dosage

  • Cold Sores (aged greater than or equal to 12 years): 2 grams every 12 hours for 1 day.
  • Chickenpox (aged 2 to less than 18 years): 20 mg/kg 3 times daily for 5 days; not to exceed 1 gram 3 times daily.

    Valacyclovir oral suspension (25 mg/mL or 50 mg/mL) can be prepared from the 500 mg Valtrex tablets.


    Dosage forms and strengths:

    Valtrex (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride) tablets: 500 mg (unscored), 1 gram (partially scored).


    Overdosage:

    Caution should be exercised to prevent inadvertent overdose by valacyclovir pills. Precipitation of acyclovir in renal tubules may occur when the solubility (2.5 mg/mL) is exceeded in the intratubular fluid. In the event of acute renal failure and anuria, the patient may benefit from hemodialysis until renal function is restored.


    Contraindications:

    Hypersensitivity to valacyclovir (e.g., anaphylaxis), acyclovir, or any component of Valtrex pills.


    Warnings and Precautions:

  • Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura/hemolytic uremic syndrome (TTP/HUS): has occurred in patients with advanced HIV-1 disease and in allogenic bone marrow transplant and renal transplant patients receiving 8 grams per day of Valtrex in clinical trials. Discontinue treatment if clinical symptoms and laboratory findings consistent with TTP/HUS occur.
  • Acute renal failure: may occur in elderly patients (with or without reduced renal function), patients with underlying renal disease who receive higher-than-recommended doses of Valtrex for their level of renal function, patients who receive concomitant nephrotoxic drugs, or inadequately hydrated patients. Use with caution in elderly patients and reduce dosage in patients with renal impairment.
  • Central nervous system adverse reactions (e.g., agitation, hallucinations, confusion, and encephalopathy): may occur in both adult and pediatric patients (with or without reduced renal function) and in patients with underlying renal disease who receive higher-than-recommended doses of valacyclovir for their level of renal function. Elderly patients are more likely to have central nervous system adverse reactions. Use with caution in elderly patients and reduce dosage in patients with renal impairment.


    Side effects, adverse reactions:

  • The most common adverse reactions reported in at least one indication by greater than 10% of adult subjects treated with Valtrex and more commonly than in subjects treated with placebo are headache, nausea, and abdominal pain.
  • The only adverse reaction occurring in greater than 10% of pediatricsubjects aged less than 18 years was headache.

    To report suspected adverse reactions of Valacyclovir HCl (Valtrex) pills, contact GlaxoSmithKline pharmaceutical company or your local FDA.


    Drug interactions:

    No clinically significant drug-drug or drug-food interactions with Valtrex (Valacyclovir) are known.


    Patient counseling information:

    Importance of Adequate Hydration

    Patients should be advised to maintain adequate hydration.

    Missed Dose

    Instruct patients that if they miss a dose of valacyclovir, to take it as soon as they remember. Advise patients not to double their next dose or take more than the prescribed dose.

    Cold Sores (Herpes Labialis)

    Patients should be advised to initiate treatment at the earliest symptom of a cold sore (e.g., tingling, itching, or burning). There are no data on the effectiveness of treatment initiated after the development of clinical signs of a cold sore (e.g., papule, vesicle, or ulcer). Patients should be instructed that treatment for cold sores should not exceed 1 day (2 doses) and that their doses should be taken about 12 hours apart. Patients should be informed that Valtrex is not a cure for cold sores.

    Genital Herpes

    Patients should be informed that Valtrex (Valacyclovir) is not a cure for genital herpes. Because genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease, patients should avoid contact with lesions or intercourse when lesions and/or symptoms are present to avoid infecting partners. Genital herpes is frequently transmitted in the absence of symptoms through asymptomatic viral shedding. Therefore, patients should be counseled to use safer sex practices in combination with suppressive therapy with VALTREX. Sex partners of infected persons should be advised that they might be infected even if they have no symptoms. Type-specific serologic testing of asymptomatic partners of persons with genital herpes can determine whether risk for HSV-2 acquisition exists.

    Valtrex has not been shown to reduce transmission of sexually transmitted infections other than HSV-2.

    If medical management of a genital herpes recurrence is indicated, patients should be advised to initiate therapy at the first sign or symptom of an episode.

    There are no data on the effectiveness of treatment initiated more than 72 hours after the onset of signs and symptoms of a first episode of genital herpes or more than 24 hours after the onset of signs and symptoms of a recurrent episode. There are no data on the safety or effectiveness of chronic suppressive therapy of more than 1 year's duration in otherwise healthy patients.

    There are no data on the safety or effectiveness of chronic suppressive therapy of more than 6 months' duration in HIV-1-infected patients.

    Herpes Zoster

    There are no data on treatment initiated more than 72 hours after onset of the zoster rash. Patients should be advised to initiate treatment as soon as possible after a diagnosis of herpes zoster.

    Chickenpox

    Patients should be advised to initiate treatment at the earliest sign or symptom of chickenpox.
