Virul tablets

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi was diagnosed with shingles 13 days ago and was given anti viral tablets, it's been very mild and small patch so coping OK. Had to take 10 tablets a day and stupidly didn't take the last 10 as I was out and couldn't fit them in equally. Today starting to feel really achy and off again. Can I just take the last 10 or will they not work this late into the virus

    yes take them! i have stopped and started a million times. its not like an antibiotic where you cant miss a day, i am sure it may not work 100% like it would had they been taken correctly but they will still do the job and if they dont then ask for a refill good luck!
