3. Antiviral Flu Drugs
If you do get sick, the CDC recommends taking an antiviral prescription drug. It is highly effective treatment your doctor can prescribe. Studies conclude that flu antiviral drugs work best for treatment when they are started within 2 days of getting sick, however starting them later can still be helpful, especially if the sick person has a high-risk health condition or is extremely sick from the flu. Always follow your doctor’s instructions for taking this drug.
