Generic Anti Viral information
People commonly confuse viral infections with bacterial infections and use antibiotics for their treatment which is not only not effective but even harmful as they neglect the main condition and lower the immunity with antibiotics. The thing is that viruses have much smaller molecules than the bacteria – the average bacteria are 0.0005mm - 0.003 mm while the average virus is only 0.0003 mm.
The virus consists of the molecule with DNA or RNA surrounded by protein molecules that create the shell for the virus. There are also more complex viruses that can have the second shell and enzymes but bacteria are more complex – they have DNA in the cytoplasm, the cell shell with capsules, flagella, and microvillus, and the RNA.
The most widespread viruses are influenza or flu-causing viruses which are also the most confused with bacterial infections. People who have stuffy nose, fever, coughing, and other symptoms of common cold or flu frequently buy antibiotics to cope with the symptoms but it is absolutely not advised to do so. In fact, on the basis of flu can develop into a bacterial infection because of the favorable conditions in the body such as accumulation of sputum, lowered body resistance to bacteria, and so on. But no virus can be treated with antibiotics. Moreover, no virus ever is completely eliminated from the body with the currently used medications. All of them can be only suppressed to the minimum amount and activity to reduce their effect in the body.
In this section of our online pharmacy we offer you to buy anti-flu medications created to fight namely viruses. Other viral infections that we offer preparations for are herpes, chickenpox, shingles, hepatitis B and C, and HIV. Let’s discuss every condition separately and see what medications are used in them.
Flu has similar symptoms to the common cold but usually, they are more intense and include fever, muscle and joint pain, headache, stuffiness of the nose or abundant nasal discharge, coughing, and general weakness. The most common treatment when the strain of the virus is not identified is symptomatic therapy, i.e. the use of antipyretic medicines, inhalations to reduce the inflammation of the throat, use of nasal drops, drinking a lot of hot tea and broths, and so on. However, if it is known that the virus is of type A2, you can start using Symmetrel (Amantadine by Cipla). The medication is also used for the prevention of flu development if you don’t have any symptoms yet.
Herpes simplex, genital herpes, herpes labialis, chicken pox, shingles
All of the conditions from this section are caused by various types of herpes virus. Herpes labialis or cold sores and genital herpes are caused by herpes simplex. Chickenpox and shingles are caused by Varicella herpes.
- Herpes labialis is manifested in cold sores on the lips or other parts of the skin in form of itchy blisters that go away within a week or two. In the most cases, it is enough to start using antiviral ointment to get rid of it or prevent the development of cold sore if you catch the first symptoms such as tingling sensation, itching or burning before the blisters occur. Although it can have a recurring character, and develop quite frequently, especially in people with low immunity and HIV. In such cases, the oral tablets are used to suppress the virus. The most popular and effective medications are Zovirax (Acyclovir by Cipla), Valtrex (Valacyclovir by Cipla), Famvir (Famciclovir by FDC Pharmaceuticals), and their generic versions.
- Genital herpes in manifested in burning sensation, tingling, and itching of the genitalia with subsequent development of fluid-filled blisters. It is a sexually transmitted infection that is transferred through an unprotected sexual intercourse. This condition is treated with pills only. For the therapy and prophylaxis of the outbreaks the same medications as for the previous condition are used but in the different dosage and treatment course duration regiments.
- Chickenpox is an acute viral airborne infection characterized by fever and development of multiple itching blisters all over the body. The condition is frequent in children and is effectively treated with the same preparations as for the first two conditions. However, in adults, the condition can cause life-threatening complications more commonly than in children. Therefore, it is advised to avoid any contact with an infected individual in the acute phase for all unvaccinated people who haven’t had the disease at an early age.
- Shingles or Varicella zoster is a condition that occurs mostly in adults. It is characterized by the occurrence of skin rash accompanied with intensive nerve pain. It usually occurs symmetrically on a single part of the body but from two sides. The preparations used for the condition are the same as for other types of herpes.
Hepatitis B and C
Viral hepatitis B and C are viruses that attack the liver and can cause severe complications such as the inability of the liver to perform its functions, liver cirrhosis development, or even liver cancer. Both types of hepatitis are transferred through an unprotected sexual intercourse, during the labor from mother to the child, blood and plasma transfusions, through using unsterilized surgical or dental instruments or syringes.
Both types of hepatitis discussed in this section can manifest in yellowing of the skin or can develop without any symptoms. They are treated with Copegus (Ribavirin), Lamivudine, Hepcinat (Sovaldi by Natco), Hepcvir (Sofosbuvir by Cipla), Rebetol (Ribavirin by Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc.), and other medications. It is very important to establish the type of hepatitis and the genotype before starting the therapy as it highly influences the preferred medications, dosage regimens, and treatment course duration. Although we sell the preparations for the conditions without prescriptions, we highly recommend you to consult your doctor and get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan before you order any anti-hepatitis pills from our online pharmacy.
HIV and AIDS
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a retrovirus from the genus of lentiviruses that causes a slow progressive disease, HIV infection or, without proper treatment, even the development of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The conditions are very dangerous because they can develop without any symptoms but as a result, the immune system of an infected person becomes susceptible to all other viruses and infections and the development of superinfection, i.e. the infection that develops on the basis of another infection is hard to treat and can cause death. Moreover, the lowered immunity can contribute to the development of fast-progressing types of cancers that do not develop in people with normal immunity.
HIV is transmitted in the same way as hepatitis B and C, i.e. an unprotected sexual intercourse, during the labor from mother to the child, blood and plasma transfusions, through using unsterilized surgical or dental instruments or syringes. Besides, it can be acquired in a contact of an open wound or scratch with the bodily fluids of an infected person.
Fortunately, today the conditions are treated quite effectively. If in the discovery of the virus in the 1980s the life expectancy of an individual with the virus was around 10-19 years with the therapy, nowadays it is 40-50 years.
At our online drugstore, you can find generic versions of the most innovative and effective anti-HIV and anti-AIDS medications at the prices considerably lower than the prices of the branded medicines with the same composition and effect. For instance, if the therapy with the branded medication is around $30.000 a year, the cost of the treatment with the identical generic is around $3.000-5.000 a year.
The mediations we offer include Combivir (Lamivudine by Cipla), Generic Epivir (Lamivudine by Cipla), Retrovir (Zidovudine by Cipla), Sustiva (Efavirenz), Zerit (Stavudine by Cipla).
Worth noting, HIV and AIDS treatments usually require the combination of several preparations. It is important to get the right diagnosis and the assessment of the condition as well as the response to the therapy before you start using any antiretroviral medication. Once you know what medications you need to use and have the treatment schemes from your doctor, you can purchase the generic versions of them at our online pharmacy to sensibly reduce the cost of the therapy without compromising its effectiveness.
