Flu: Flu is treated symptomatically. Treat the symptoms. Usually anything that states it treats the symptoms of flu. It can be tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and flu, nyquil, dayquil, or any other cold or flu medication that treats your symptoms. Most of them are safe with paxil.

Flu: Meds not required.If you have flu hydrate well w water, herbal teas, soup or juice. Drink sufficiently to have pale to light yellow urine. You can use pain relievers like tylenol (acetaminophen) or nsaid’s. Rest a lot! in some situations antiviral medications (tamiflu, relenza, flumadine) may be prescribed w/n first couple of days of sx’s to hasten healing or they can be used after flu exposure to prevent illness.
