Antiviral Pills for Viral Infection Treatment

Antiviral medications are used specifically for treating infections that are strongly suspected due to viruses. Most antiviral drugs are used for specific viral infections and a broad-spectrum antiviral medicine is effective against a variety of viruses. Antiviral medications are not prescribed for bacterial or fungal infections. Like antibiotics, antivirals do not destroy the bacteria. Instead, they inhibit the growth of viruses. For example, Generic Valtrex is quite useful in treating herpes simplex and chickenpox.
