Reviews on the generic Valtex pill is blue number on pill is SZ 393 Sandoz pharm. from people that have tried this .. ## Hello, Ann! How are you? I've never taken it myself, since I've only dealt with oral cold sores, but I haven't read many complaints about it on here, or other medical information sites. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and stomach pain. I take Acyclovir, since it's the one approved to prevent cold sores and I have taken the one from Sandoz, I found it to work fine for me. Can anyone that's taken this one chime in with their experience?

Can valrex be taken with xenadrine ## Hello, Lola! How are you? I'm sorry, but since the Xenadrine is just an over the counter supplement, it has not been evaluated for possible interactions with prescription medications. Have you checked with your pharmacist? They may have some information on it. I'll do some research and post back if I find anything.

The pill is dark blue, like valtrex color, round, and larger than an asprin with an imprint of 100 on one side and scored on the other side ## `I haven't been able to find a listing for anything meeting this description with just the 100 marking on it in any of the prescription drug databases that I checked. That leads me to suspect that it's likely something available over the counter. Learn more OTC drug details here. Where was it found? ## I found a pill with the same description. I was thinking it was a generic Viagra. Did you ever find out what yours was?? I am very curiose. ## I found 2 blue pills 1 oval with 100 on 1 side and blank on the other ! Other pill is same colour light blue round shape with sc on 1 side and 100 on other side ? Please can u tell me what they are ?

Is Ranbaxy Valacyclovir gluten free ? ## Hello, Based on my research, Ranbaxy Pharmaceutical's version of Valacyclovir hydrochloride does NOT list gluten as an ingredient. From what I could gather, each film-coated tablet contains the following list of inactive ingredients: crospovidone, FD&C blue #2/indigo carmine aluminum lake, hypromellose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, polyethylene glycol 400, polyethylene glycol 6000, polysorbate 80, povidone, and titanium dioxide. Ref: I hope this helps to answer your question!
