This morning I woke up with the start of an outbreak on my bum cheek. I've started to take acyclovir 200mg, but how the hell can I take this 5?! Times a day! Can u take it every 2 hours to get them all in or can u take 2 every 4 hours? I've tried searching the Internet for answers but can't find anything specific and I just wondered how people got 5 tablets in in one day as it says not at night to take them! I also don't want to end up overdosing as these tablets do make me feel ill, especially with nausea! But it is worth it to get rid of the pain and itching of herpes! Please please help!
