Prevention & Treatment: Treatment

If you do contract the flu, talk to your doctor about antiviral medication.

Antiviral drugs are prescription medicines (pills, liquid or an inhaler) that can be used for prevention or treatment of flu viruses. If you get sick, antiviral drugs can make your illness milder and make you feel better faster. Two types of antivirals, Oseltamivir (TAMIFLU®) and Zanamivir  (RELENZA®) may be prescribed for the H1N1 flu. In addition, PERAMIVIR IV, has been authorized under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to treat certain patients with suspected or confirmed 2009 H1N1 flu virus infection.
