I have been having flu for the past five days. I took benylin 4 flu but I'm not getting better. What must I do?

I have been having flu for the past five days. I took benylin 4 flu but I'm not getting better. What must I do?

Natural remedies: Flu often lasts about a week so 5 days is normal. Benylin can help relieve symptoms but does nothing to speed your recovery. Rest and fluids are important, but high doses of Vitamin C and many herbs such as elderberry extract can be very helpful. Homeopathy can also help a great deal.
