I need info on acyclovir action. What are the indications for its usage? How does it fight against viruses? What’s the point with antiviral drugs? I’ve thought that viral infections can not be cured with any known medications. Please post. Thanks.

The problem is that viruses live inside the cells, so cell must be destructed with the micro organisms too. Acyclovir is indicated in herpes simplex, herpes zoster and mononucleosis caused by Epstein Barr’s virus. Acyclovir actually doesn’t cure the infection; it just helps reducing the symptoms. It can’t eradicate virus. Acyclovir reduces pain, decreases symptoms and reduces healing time, that’s all. As in antibiotics, resistant can be developed in over usage.
