The CDC has issued an advisory regarding the influenza virus. They are noting that the prevalent form , influenza A (H3N2) has in previous years led to more complications and hospitalizations. Over the past three weeks we are noticing a significant increase in Flu "A" patients.
It is being recommended to start treatment with antiviral medication as soon as possible for patients who have the flu. It is best to start medication within 48 hours, but the sooner the better. The medication makes much more impact when started within hours. We as well as the CDC recommend to all patients if they think they may have the flu get evaluated as soon as possible. This allows us to start treatment quickly and decrease the duration of the illness and potential complications.
