Mom developed shingles while in hospital... (she had a blackout spell at while at lunch, so was admitted)... doctors discovered an irregular heart beat and urinary tract infection, but all other tests were negative... she is not diabetic... when transferred to rehab center, nurses discovered the shingles... doctor prescribed acyclovir... am concerned that this drug might be too strong for her... is this drug safe for the elderly?
