GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

How Zovirax Works
If you get that tingling feeling treat immediately with Zovirax antiviral cream to help prevent the development of a cold sore. Remember to apply 5 times a day for 4 days.
Not all cold sore treatments are equal. Be warned. Many cold sore treatments available from pharmacies or supermarkets, only act as mild antiseptics and skin moisturisers. Zovirax antiviral cream contains an antiviral ingredient (aciclovir) that stops the virus replicating or treats the virus.

Zovirax Cream delivers the antiviral active ingredient, aciclovir, in a special formulation containing MAC-P. MAC-P is an absorption accelerator that allows the active ingredient to penetrate the skin 5 x faster* to get to the area where the virus is reproducing. Once it reaches this area the active ingredient springs into action – making it difficult for the virus to reproduce itself. When that happens, your body's natural defences can get to work and help to heal the cold sore. The cream also contains ingredients which help moisturise deep within the skin to soothe and protect.

It's best to start treatment with Zovirax antiviral cream as soon as you feel the tingle, so Zovirax antiviral cream can help stop the virus replication. However, the antiviral properties of Zovirax cream means it is also effective at the blister phase - helping to speed healing .
