What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Generic Zovirax (Acyclovir) is the cost-saving alternative to the most trusted name in medicinal herpes treatments. This antiviral oral tablet stops the spread and growth of herpes, lessening the effects of the virus on your body, thus allowing the body to work on fighting the infection, and effectively diminishes the discomfort and length of herpes outbreaks from those who suffer from recurring episodes.
Generic Zovirax may also be marketed as: Acyclovir, ACV, Xovir, Aciclovir, acycloguanosine, Acivir, Acivirax, Herpex, and Cyclovir.
