Patient : My dr put me on Acyclovir 800mg one a day. I've always been told by my previous dr to never take medication during pregnancy. But I wasn't HSV2 positive then. I'm just worried that the medication will hurt my child. When I ask my dr he just kind of avoids the question. I want to know if this is too much to take while pregnant. I've heard of people taking 400mg 3x a day but is that any different than 800mg one a day. I mean is it more consentrated or something? Please help.
