Hi... can't see any reason why not, as valacylivir is converted to acylivir in the body .I take they were prescribed for you? Your Gp should have told you to have a break if you weren't supposed to.

The other thing you might try is speaking with a pharmacist or contacting the gp online just for advice.

yes you can
