  【Indications】 The product is applicable to the following disease:

  1. Herpes Zoster Infections: Aciclovir capsule is indicated for the acute  treatment of herpes zoster.

  2. Genital Herpes: Aciclovir capsule is indicated for the treatment of  initial episodes and the management of recurrent episodes of genital herpes.

  3. Chickenpox: Aciclovir capsule is indicated for the treatment of  chickenpox

  【Dosage and administration】 For oral administration at the following  doses:

  (1) Normal dose

  1. Acute Treatment of Herpes Zoster: 200-800 mg every 4 hours, 5 times  daily for 7 to 10 days.

  2. Genital Herpes

  Treatment of Initial Genital Herpes: 200 mg every 4 hours for adults, 5  times daily for 10 days.

  Chronic Suppressive Therapy for Recurrent Disease: 400 mg 2 times daily for  adults for 4-6 months to 12 months, followed by re-evaluation. According to the  re-evaluation results, Alternative regimens can be chosen at doses ranging from  200 mg 3 times daily or 200 mg 5 times daily. The frequency and severity of  episodes of untreated genital herpes may change over time. After 1 year of  therapy, the frequency and severity of the patient's genital herpes infection   should be reevaluated to assess the need for continuation of therapy with  aciclovir.

  Intermittent Therapy: 200 mg every 4 hours, 5 times daily for over 5 days.  Therapy should be timely initiated at the earliest sign or symptom (prodrome) of  recurrence.

  3. Chickenpox

  Children (2 years of age and older): 20 mg/kg per dose orally 4 times daily  with a total dose of 80 mg/kg/day.

  (2) Dose adjustment:

  1. Patients with acute or chronic renal impairment: the dosage and administration for these patients should be modified as shown in Table 3.

  2. Hemodialysis: for patients who require hemodialysis, the mean plasma  half-life of aciclovir during hemodialysis is approximately 5 hours. This  results in a 60% decrease in plasma concentrations following a 6-hour dialysis  period. Therefore, the patient's dosing schedule should be adjusted so that an  additional dose is administered after each dialysis.

  3. Peritoneal Dialysis: no supplemental dose appears to be necessary after  adjustment of the dosing interval.
