The good news is that most people recover from the flu without complications. There are prescription antiviral medicines called “Tamiflu” and “Relenza” that fight against the flu and can make your illness milder and make you feel better faster. Most people do not need these antiviral drugs to recover from the flu.
- Symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, body aches
- Mild cases are easily treated with fluids, rest, and medications to lower fever such as Tylenol (Aceteminophen) or Motrin (Ibuprofen)
- There is one vaccine this year for the "swine flu" and sesonal flu.
- Certain people are at “high risk” of serious complications:
- People 65 years and older;
- Children younger than five years old;
- Pregnant women; and,
- People of any age with medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma and kidney disease.
