How Is the Flu Treated?
There are a variety of options when it comes to flu treatment, such as antiviral medication. It is most effective when taken within the first 48 hours of having flu-like symptoms and will lessen both the severity of your symptoms and the length of your illness. Antiviral medication is also critical for patients who are in a high-risk group, such as:
- Pregnant women
- Children younger than five
- Adults over the age of 65
- Individuals with chronic conditions
- People with weakened immune systems, such as those undergoing chemotherapy
Other treatment options for the flu include bed rest, drinking lots of liquids, and taking over-the-counter pain relievers to help with symptoms, such as body aches, fever, and headaches.

Many other illnesses, including respiratory infections, strep throat, and the common cold, have similar symptoms so we’ll want to rule those out before making a determination.
