In brief: Rest is best

Resting and drinking plenty of fluid is best.
Flu is viral, there are no medications to cure the flu. If your are not vomiting take plenty of small sips of clear liquid, take tyelenol for body aches. If your symptoms also involve upper respiratory symptoms then see your doctor to check if you have influenza. If seen with early symptoms you can get a prescription for medicine to shorten duration.
