This is a brief history of the patient suffering from CEREBRAL HERPES
At the moment following medication is being given:
1. Injection Zovirax ( A- cyclovide) 750mg thrice a day for 5 days
2. Injection Zovirax ( A- cyclovide) 750mg once a day for 2 days
The dosage of this drug is causing stoppage of kidney and also not allowing patient to come to consciousness.
This drug is still to be continued for next 10days. We would like to know any substitute of this drug.
Please guide us.
Response from Dr. Henry
How many days into therapy is this patient?? How was the diagnosis of herpes encephalitis made? How is his/her HIV status. What is the creatinine clearance?? Do you have ganciclovir or foscarnet available?? Keith Henry, M.D.
