Dosages and duration of therapy differ depending on the drug and the immune status of the host. Duration of therapy should be extended until all lesions are resolved, particularly in the immunocompromised population. Resistance to these drugs is very rare. Check with your physician before changing any medications or dosages. Lowell Sterler, RPh...
