Taking Acyclovir for chicken pox - side effects?

I just wondered if anyone had any experience of children taking Acyclovir in relation to exposure to chicken pox. Were there any side effects?

DS took it last year, he was 4 at the time, caught it at the same time as DH (hence the meds). He never had any side effects. Similarly when DD (6) caught it a week later, she took it without any side effects

I took it in relation to something else, with no side effects. Good luck re the CP!

Thanks for the replies. It just seems such a lot of medicine to take - I picked up 5 bottles from the pharmacy. Anyway, dd doesn't seem to mind the taste which is a good thing.
