Infectious Diseases >> Swine Flu

Treatment

  • The greatest treatment for influenza infections in humans is prevention by vaccination, but to date (April 2009), there is no vaccine available for swine (H1N1) flu.
  • The new swine flu virus is sensitive to the antiviral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza. The CDC recommends those drugs to prevent or treat swine flu; the drugs are most effective when taken within 48 hours of the start of flu symptoms. But not everyone needs those drugs; many of the first people in the U.S. with lab-confirmed swine flu recovered without treatment.
