Dont remember if i took meds
Oct 17, 2012

I dont remember if I took my Vancyclovir this morning. Will it hurt me to take one now if I did take one already this morning?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi,

Valacyclovir (Vancyclovir, Valtrex) is a medication used to treat herpes virus infections. It generally is well tolerated and taking a single extra dose (if that's the case) won't cause any problems.

If your unsure about your medication dosing, you might consider using a pill box- it's a simple and inexpensive way to keep track of your pills.
