How does Famvir herpes treatment work?

Famciclovir, the active ingredient of Famvir pills, is an antiviral component used to treat herpes simplex infections. It is also available as a generic drug without a commercial name.

The Famvir treatment effectively stops the spread of herpes viruses causing the genital herpes simplex – type 1 and 2, as well as chickenpox and herpes zoster – varicella zoster.

Once Famvir is inside the body, contained in it famciclovir is converted into penciclovir. It is a very active compound which interferes with the action of a viral enzyme – DNA polymerase. DNA polymerase is necessary for the virus to spread in the infected body. Penciclovir inhibits the action of DNA polymerase preventing the virus from spreading and helping the immune system to fight the infection.
