I was diagnosed with genital warts last december and my gynecologist did eletrocautery and punch biopsy. Result for my punch biopsy was marked cervicitis associated with koilocytic changes. I went to another gynecologist for second opinion. Pap smear was done but result came out as unsatisfactory due to presence of inflammation or infection that obscure the epithelial lining. Prior to my pap smear result, my gyne doctor prescribed dalacin vaginal cream for two weeks. I went to see him after three weeks with my pap result and he prescribed famcyclovir for two weeks. Is famcyclovir also a treatment for hpv? I know for the fact that this drug is specific for Herpes. Do i need to take this medication?

Hi gigi,

Ask your doctor exactly what the famciclovir has been prescribed to treat. I have never heard of it being used for HPV, but it is used to treat herpes (HSV) and shingles.

Read more about the indications of this medication at www.famvir.com.

Sorry I can't offer more insight but if you have other questions, please feel free to post anytime.

All the best,
Fredo
