Notes: Antiviral medications such as:
- Oseltamivir (Tamiflu®)
- Zanamivir (Relenza®)
This is to fight against the influenza viruses from reproducing in the body. These medications, when taken early in the course of infection (within 2 days of the appearance of symptoms) may:
- Reduce the severity of the infection with faster recovery from the illness.
- Prevent serious flu complications.
