I'm not a doctor but I used to be a health/human performance major in undergrad, so maybe I've got a bit more perspective than some, obviously consult a physician before doing/taking anything you're unsure of...



Now that the "don't sue me if you get sick" clause is out of the way, I've taken echinacea w/ goldenseal and bee propolis with very good results for every flu/cold season I've endured. You can find them at most corner drugstore type places, and some supermarkets.

I'm not a fan of taking medicine for common colds and headaches and such. I take medicine for immense pain relief.

Flu

If you have true Flu you will feel really sick; it starts with fever 102 or more, bad sore throat, bad headache, very sensitive to light, muscle and joint aches,chills, a cough that quickly becomes a chest cough.
If you don't or didn't have a fever, it is probably just a bad cold/cough.
In either event the treatment is the same-rest,fluids. There are some meds that will shorten true flu-see your MD for them, but you are a little late.There is some debate about taking meds(like aleve, tylenol, ibupro.) to drop your fever, and decrease the muscle/ joint aches.Some think dropping the fever is bad, since it is your bodies response to the germ( the thought is that high temps make your body less "friendly" to the virus). If felt like crap, I would take it.
Get a flu shot next season(Oct 2007), or soon(once you are well), if you don't have true flu.
If you are young and healthy and it is true flu,you'll feel a lot better 7days from the beginning, and about well 14-20 days from the onset.
Luck,
Charlie

Smoking was to hard on the lungs, some good B.C bud in some brownies is all you need.

I'm clean. Never did a drug, smoked, or drank in my life.
