  Treatment

Recently, a new class of antiviral drugs neuraminidase inhibitors has been approved in several countries for treatment of uncomplicated influenza. These inhibitors called zanamivir and oseltamivir are active against both influenza A and B viruses. Administered within 48 hours of illness, they can reduce the severity and duration of signs and symptoms of uncomplicated Influenza. However, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared that they are no substitution for vaccination.


For any question on treatment of influenza, always consult your doctor for professional medical advice.
