What Are Antiviral Drugs?
Antiviral drugs are prescription medicines that fight against the flu virus in your body. They appear in different forms (e.g., pills, liquids, powders) and are different from antibiotics, which fight against bacterial infections.
What is the Flu?
Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses and can cause mild to severe illness. While a flu vaccine is the first and best way to prevent seasonal flu, if you get sick, antiviral drugs can be used to treat flu illness.
What is the Flu Vaccine?
An annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. Flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.
Our goal is to make it simple for users to find available flu medication.
