Overdosage
No untoward effects would be expected if the entire contents of a 5 gram tube of Acyclovir cream containing 250 mg of Acyclovir were ingested orally. However the accidental, repeated overdose of oral Acyclovir, over several days has resulted in gastrointestinal effects (nausea and vomiting) and neurological effects (headache and confusion). Acyclovir is dialyzable by hemodialysis.
