OVERVIEW

– Ezovir is an antiviral medicine used to treat recurrent outbreaks of cold sores in adults 18 years of age and over who have a normal immune system (the body system which fights against harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi). Cold sores are an infection caused by a virus called herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1). The infection is most commonly acquired as a baby or child from contact with parents or relatives, often from kissing

– Cold sores usually begin on or around the lips, mouth, and nose as small red bumps that turn into fluid-filled blisters. Cold sores can be tender and painful. Many people who get cold sores know when one is coming by a tingling, burning, itchy or painful sensation or redness in the area

– After redness and swelling develop, blisters form. The blisters may weep or burst and this can be painful. Then a shallow ulcer and yellow crust form as the cold sore dries. The crust eventually falls off, exposing new pink-coloured skin. Generally the sores heal without scarring. After the initial infection has healed, the virus becomes dormant in nerve cells

– Cold sores can be unpredictable. The virus can become active again in the body, even after many years, resulting in recurrent outbreaks.

DIRECTIONS

– Take Ezovir as soon as possible after the first symptoms (e.g. tingling, itching or burning) or signs (e.g. redness or swelling) of a cold sore appear

– Do not take the tablets if a hard crust has already formed on the cold sore

– Swallow the tablets whole with a full glass of water

– They may be taken with or without food. It is not necessary to chew or crush the tablet

– A single dose of Ezovir is all that is necessary for treating each episode of cold sores

– Each pack of Ezovir contains enough medicine for one dose

– A repeat dose during this episode is not recommended. If another episode of cold sores recurs, another dose may be taken. However, treatment should not be repeated within 7 days.

STORAGE

– Do not refrigerate or freeze

– Store below 25°C.

WARNING

– Do not take less than the recommended dose of 3 tablets, unless advised by your doctor

– Do not give this medicine to anyone else even if their condition seems to be the same as yours

– Do not use it to treat any other complaints unless your doctor tells you to

– If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine

– Be careful driving, operating machinery or doing jobs that require you to be alert until you know how Ezovir affects you

– This medicine can cause dizziness, sleepiness or confusion.
