You have the flu - now what?

Note: this article is provided by ONU Healthwise Pharmacy.
Flu season is here, and that means you or a loved one might have been diagnosed with the flu.

Can the Flu Be Treated?

Yes — the flu can be treated with antiviral medications.

Antivirals are medications that fight the flu in your body. These medications are not sold over the counter. They require a prescription from your doctor.

Antivirals are different from antibiotics because antibiotics are used to fight bacterial infections — not viral infections.
