It is of vital importance to start flu treatment from the very first hours of indisposition. Here are some tips that could bring you some comfort and relief.

1. Try to drink as much water as possible. It’s advisable to drink 2-2,5 litres of water a day.

2. Take in 2,5 gr of ascorbic acid on the first day of the disease. Then, the doze should make just 1 gr a day. Remember that ascorbic acid collapses very easily in case of high temperature, agitation and excessive light.

3. Such antiviral agents as remantadin, arbidol and others should be taken in from the very beginning when you have been diagnosed with flu. Anyways, it will do only good. Remember the saying ‘prevention is better than cure’?
