In brief: Flu remedies.

For patients that have your situation, i recommend they stay well hydrated and get plenty of rest.
Think which symptom bothers you the most and look for an otc medication that can best help with you those symptoms. Pharmacist can be a good resource for your regarding which otc med is right for you. Some of them can be quite effective! make sure your getting adequate nutrition and proper vitamins.
