    Default What is the best medicine against flu?

    I had been down with flu for about four days now.

    I am fed up coz I need to do some works soon.....any advise on how to get rid of my stuffy head, nose and lethargic body?

    The doctor said there is no cure, except rest and more rest....

    Any alternative?

    think the doc's right. the body's the one that could fight against the virus. u could be vaccinated against future attacks though.

    Too late (4 days) otherwise within 48 hrs can take Tamiflu.

    Get yourself vaccinated the next time?

    Otherwise too bad, juz gotta suffer a bit lah!

    One teaspoon of Vicks Vaporub in a bowl of hot water. Towel over your head and inhale deeply. Take the cough medicine and go to sleep.

    No cure for influenza. The doctor can only prescribe medication to relieve the symptoms caused by the virus. Just need to rest more and drink lots of fluids.

    Take care.

    trust me, good rest, sleep early, take 500mg of vitamin C, drink water, don't browse CS for 48 hours.

    U don't need any medicine.

    Natural prevention against flu - regular exercise, sufficient sleep, moderation in food consumption, water.

    Rest and more rest. Don't stress yourself too much by trying to recover quickly. It will only make it worse!

    the best way to prevent nose-like symptons is to do running/jogging to exercise your lung.

    try take zinc...~15mcg...one key function of zinc is it helps with (speeds up) body recovery and healing. this you can easily find in about 6 oysters or one single pill..

    after your cold gets better, you may find out about zinc's OTHER function..it boosts male er...sexuality if you get what i mean.

    4 days is nothing

    i been down for 2 and a half weeks + nonstop fever before..and some more that was when i was in army - less than ideal rest conditions.

    looking back..on average will get flu every once a year
