Anemia is the most common side effect experienced in both adults and children. Another serious blood related problem is thrombocytopenia, a disorder that causes serious bleeding that could be fatal.

Although, Valcyte is available both as tablets and oral solutions to be taken with food, adult patients should take tablets only. The dosage administered for adult patients with renal impairment is 900 mg twice daily for a period of 21 days as an induction process and is followed by a maintenance process of 900 mg once a day.
