- Today, the most effective antiviral drugs can be considered: " Tamiflu " (or " Oseltamyvyr " ) and " Relenza " ( " zanamivir " ). 100 percent proven their effectiveness in the treatment of influenza and SARS. However, since their price is too high for the majority of Ukrainian, we have to look for alternatives.
These drugs are " Amantadine " , " Remantadin " and the like, which were created in 1950-1960, I was not very efficient. Modern viruses are sensitive to them.
The best prevention for " Amixin ( " proteflazid " ), but it must take a long time.
On " hot drinks " that are available over the counter, for example, " Farmatsytron " , they do not eliminate the cause viral disease, only symptoms (churning temperature, eliminating headaches, joint pain). The action of these drugs is temporary, ill for some time feels better, but it does not solve the problem.
Therefore, in any case ill, contact your doctor who will advise what and how to be treated. Les TOKARYUK
