Famvir for Herpes

Famvir® (famciclovir) is an antiviral medication used for treating genital herpes, shingles, and cold sores. While the drug cannot cure any of these conditions, it can improve symptoms and help prevent outbreaks. For example, when used for recurring genital herpes, Famvir can help the blisters heal more quickly, and, if taken on a daily basis, help prevent genital herpes outbreaks from occurring and decrease the severity of any future outbreaks.
