The standard dose of acyclovir for herpes zoster is 800 mg every 4 hours orally, 5 times daily for 7 to 10 days... this is not much more than what you were prescribed.
Overdoses involving ingestion of up to 100 capsules (20 g) have been reported. Effects included agitation, coma, seizures, and lethargy.
