Valganciclovir is an antiviral medication used to treat people with immune system problems (e.g., AIDS) who have a serious eye infection (cytomegalovirus or CMV retinitis). Valganciclovir is also used to prevent CMV disease in certain transplant patients (i.e., kidney-pancreas, heart). Valcyte is not a cure for CMV retinitis.

  • Store at room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 to 30 degrees C) away from heat and moisture.

  • If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.
  • Symptoms of overdose may include: uncontrolled muscle movements, yellowing eyes or skin, dark urine, red-colored/bloody urine.


How To Use
  • Valcyte is taken by mouth usually once or twice daily with food, or as directed by your doctor.
  • The dosage and frequency is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • Valcyte must be swallowed whole.
  • Do not crush or chew Valcyte.
  • Avoid skin or eye contact with any powder from broken or crushed doses because it may be harmful.
  • Should skin contact with any of the powder occur, wash with plenty of soap and water.
  • If eye contact occurs, rinse the eyes well with water.
  • Do not take more or less of Valcyte than prescribed, or stop taking it (or other HIV-related medicine), even for a brief time, unless directed to do so by your doctor.
  • This may cause the amount of virus to increase, may make the virus more difficult to treat, or may cause side effects to worsen.
  • Valcyte works best when the amount of drug in your body is kept at a constant level.
  • Therefore, take Valcyte at evenly spaced intervals.

Side Effects
  • Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dizziness, headache, or trouble sleeping may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur: stomach pain, fever, easy bleeding or bruising, persistent sore throat, chills, unusual weakness and fatigue, tingling or numbness of the hands or feet.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: severe bleeding, loss of vision, change in amount of urine, seizures, mental/mood changes, unusual or severe swelling.
  • An allergic reaction to Valcyte is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

  • Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: kidney problems, radiation treatments, blood disorders (e.g., low platelets, low blood cell counts), any allergies (especially to acyclovir or ganciclovir).
  • Valcyte may make you dizzy or drowsy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Because Valcyte can lower your body s ability to fight an infection, do not touch your eyes or the inside of your nose without first washing your hands.
  • Do not have immunizations/vaccinations without the consent of your doctor and avoid contact with people who have recently received live vaccines (e.g., oral polio vaccine).
  • Use caution with sharp objects like safety razors or nail cutters and avoid activities such as contact sports to lower the chance of getting cut, bruised, or injured.
  • Caution is advised when using Valcyte in the elderly since they may be more sensitive to Valcytes effects.
  • Valcyte is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
  • Consult your doctor for more details and to discuss reliable forms of birth control.
  • It is recommended that men and women use birth control measures while taking Valcyte since valganciclovir may cause fetal harm.
  • It is recommended that men use a latex condom during sexual activity while being treated with Valcyte and for at least 90 days (3 months) after they stop taking it.
  • It is not known if Valcyte passes into breast milk.
  • However, mothers should not breastfeed infants while on Valcyte due to valganciclovir s potential for serious side effects.

Missed Dose
  • It is very important that you take Valcyte exactly as instructed.
  • However, if you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use, especially: drugs that may impair the immune system (such as anti-cancer drugs or corticosteroids like prednisone), certain other HIV-related medications (e.g., didanosine, zalcitabine, zidovudine), probenecid, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, mycophenolate, dapsone, imipenem-cilastatin, pentamidine.
  • Tell your doctor if you currently take, or have ever taken ganciclovir.
  • Do not substitute or interchange ganciclovir with valganciclovir; overdose may occur.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
