Sorry you are sick. The flu sucks!! I used theraflu and dayquil/nyquil when I had the flu a few years ago. Other than that, not much you can do. Just sleep a lot and get lots of vitamins. I drank a lot of orange juice. Hang in there!! ๐Ÿ™‚

pseudoephedrine for congestion, ibuprofen for pain, and diphenhydramine to sleep.  That’s all you need to know.  All OTC meds are the same, with the exception of swapping out ibuprofen for aspirin or tylenol – and phenylephrine for sudafed (because the latter is behind the counter).  A few might have the same ingredient of mucinex in a much lower dosage.  Other than that, fluids – and chicken soup has been proven to be effective.

If you get a rattling/mucous issue, you can use Mucinex to get it coughed up.  Gross, but necessary.

If your physician said you had the flu, they should have given you a prescription for Tamiflu. But rest and fluids are always best. Don’t beat yourself about not getting the flu shot, remember it only protects against 2 strands and had last years H1N1 in it. There are many strands of flu out there so no one is ever fully protected.
