Simple bed rest with plenty of fluids and over-the-counter pain relievers and medications to manage your symptoms are the best course of treatment for most people who get the flu. Antiviral medications used for influenza only shorten the course of illness by a day or two and are generally only recommended in patients with severe illness or who are at risk for complications. Your doctor will decide whether or not an antiviral is indicated for you.
