Weight gain during Valacyclovir therapy?

Hello everybody!

I'd like to ask the following question: Did anyone gain weight while they were taking Valaciclovir? I have taken it for 7 days now (Lerner dose: 4 x 1 gram per day), and I have put on weight even though I haven't eaten more than usual. Could my gain in weight be due to the intake of valaciclovir? Anyone with the same or similar experience?

If there is a connection, is the weight gain dangerous and a bad sign?

Best wishes
