Dealing with flu symptoms can be challenging, but there are plenty of things you can try at home to help you feel better sooner. Be sure to:

  • Rest and drink fluids to stay hydrated and facilitate recovery
  • Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen to alleviate fever and discomfort
  • Try cough suppressants and decongestants to relieve coughing and congestion

Prescribed Flu Medication Options

For eligible patients, antiviral medications, such as Tamiflu, may be prescribed to reduce the severity and duration of flu symptoms.
