What is a generic medication?

Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Xerese Drug Information

  • Xerese Overview

    acyclovir and hydrocortisone. Xerese is used to treat cold sores/fever blisters caused by a virus (herpes simplex). Acyclovir is an antiviral medication that works by stopping the growth of the virus. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that helps relieve itching, pain, and burning symptoms. Xerese can speed up healing of cold sores, but it does not cure herpes or prevent passing the infection to someone else. It also does not prevent cold sores from returning.

  • How to Use Xerese

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using Xerese and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Use Xerese at the first sign of a cold sore. Wash your hands with soap and water before and after applying Xerese. Clean and dry the affected area before applying the medication. Apply a thin layer on the affected area as directed by your doctor, usually 5 times a day (every 3 to 4 hours) for 5 days. Apply enough cream to cover all affected areas. Do not rub the area because it may spread to other areas around your mouth or make your cold sore worse. Do not apply other skin products (including make-up, sunscreen, or lip balm) or cover the affected area with a bandage. To prevent washing off the medication, do not bathe, shower, or swim for 30 minutes after application. Do not apply Xerese in the eyes or nose, inside the mouth, or on the genitals. Cold sores (herpes) can spread easily. Acyclovir/hydrocortisone cream does not prevent the spread of herpes. Avoid sharing eating utensils, cups, razors, or towels during an outbreak. Also, try not to touch the cold sore (including kissing), and wash your hands if you do touch the cold sore. Use Xerese regularly to get the most benefit from it. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens after 2 weeks.

  • Xerese Precautions

    Before using Xerese, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to acyclovir or hydrocortisone; or if you have any other allergies. Xerese may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Xerese, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Tell your doctor if you are pregnant before using Xerese. Xerese may pass into breast milk in small amounts. However, it is unlikely to harm a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Xerese Misdose

    If you miss a dose of Xerese, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

  • Xerese Interactions

    Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.

  • Xerese Side Effects

    What are Xerese side effects?

    Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Xerese may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Xerese as a result of an interaction with other medications.

    Side Effects of Xerese

    The side effects of Xerese may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Xerese. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Xerese may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.

    Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Xerese, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Xerese.

    By understanding side effects and the factors which may influence the occurrence of side effects patients are empowered to take an active role in their care. Patients who have specific questions about the side effects of Xerese, or any other medication, should contact their physician.
