  About the condition


What is Flu?


Influenza is a viral disease that usually strikes between October and May. It lasts from three to five days and can be followed by fatigue for two or three weeks. It usually causes aching muscles and joints, headaches , cough and fever with a temperature of between 38 oC and 40 oC.
Although it can become a much more severe illness, leading to pneumonia, nerve and brain damage and even death, such complications are rare.
Because it is a viral infection it cannot be treated with antibiotics. The best remedy is rest while drinking plenty of fluids.
It is possible to get vaccinated against influenza, which is especially advisable for the elderly and people with heart and lung diseases. In the UK vaccination is offered to:
           * everyone over 65 years old
           * anyone with conditions such as asthma, heart or kidney disease
           * anyone who may otherwise be at increased risk.

Causes

Flu is a viral disease that is passed from one person to another through the air. The disease infects the nose, throat or lungs. It often breaks out as an epidemic which quickly spreads from town to town and country to country. Typically, an area can have epidemic conditions for a period of four to six weeks before it eases off.

The Symptoms


           * Headache.
           * Fever (38o to 40oC).
           * Aching muscles and joints.
           * Chest pains.
           * Lack of appetite.
           * Fatigue and weakness.
           * A runny nose and sore throat.
           * Dry cough.
           * Restless sleep.
           * Chills and shivering.
           * Indigestion.
           * Vomiting or diarrhoea.

Advice


           * Drink as much as possible - you lose a lot of liquids during a fever.
           * Rest, preferably by staying in bed.
           * Try to get plenty of sleep.
           * If you have a cough, an over-the-counter cough remedy may ease your symptoms. The pharmacist is the best person to advise on this.
           * Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.
           * Paracetamol (eg Panadol, Calpol) or aspirin (eg Aspro clear) will reduce fever and muscle aches. (Note that aspirin should not be given to children under 16 years of age, unless on the advice of a doctor.) Ibuprofen (eg Nurofen) will also relieve these symptoms. These painkillers are also found combined with medicines such as nasal decongestants in various over-the-counter cold and flu remedies. Ask your pharmacist for advice about which are most suitable for relieving your symptoms.
           * Consult a doctor if the symptoms do not disappear after a week, or sooner if you feel worse.

Important Notes

Usually, influenza lasts three to five days. If it goes on for more than a week or if the symptoms are very severe, you are advised to consult your doctor.

A bad case of influenza has the potential to develop into a more serious condition like pneumonia or sinus trouble and in rare cases it can be life-threatening.


           * Both colds and flu are caused by a virus but the symptoms of influenza are usually more severe.
           * Antibiotics have no effect against influenza.
           * Damp or cold cannot cause influenza. However, sudden changes in temperature may cause the symptoms to appear more quickly.
           * People are seldom infected by the same type of influenza twice because resistance develops within two or four weeks. However, the influenza virus constantly mutates into slightly different versions of itself, which is one reason why vaccination is sometimes ineffective. The vaccination also needs to be done yearly to keep up the person's level of immunity. The type of vaccination given each year changes slightly, as this is the ‘best guess’ vaccination to cover the likely type of influenza virus that will be most common that year.
           * It is possible to pass on the infection the day before you develop the symptoms yourself. You can also pass on the infection until the day after your fever has disappeared.
 
  About the Medicine

About Tamiflu

Tamiflu capsules and suspension contain the active ingredient oseltamivir phosphate, which is a type of medicine called a neuraminidase inhibitor. It is used to treat and prevent infection with the influenza (flu) virus.
           * Treating flu (influenza) in adults and children over one year of age, when the influenza virus is circulating in the community.
           * Treating flu (influenza) in children aged 6 to 12 months during a pandemic outbreak of flu.
           * Preventing flu (influenza) in adults and children over one year of age who live in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with flu, when the influenza virus is circulating in the community.
           * Preventing flu (influenza) in adults and children over one year of age in exceptional circumstances, such as during a pandemic, or in cases when flu vaccination doesn't provide protection against the strain of flu virus that is circulating.

Tamiflu is being used to treat people infected with swine flu during the current pandemic. Swine flu is caused by a strain of the influenza type A virus known as H1N1
