Understanding the Flu

Before diving into the realm of flu medications, it's crucial to understand the nature of the flu virus itself. Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Flu symptoms often start quickly. You can start to feel sick about 1 to 7 days after you come in contact with the virus. Most of the time, symptoms appear within 2 to 3 days.

The flu spreads rapidly, akin to wildfire. According to most specialists, flu viruses primarily disseminate through tiny droplets emitted when individuals with flu cough, sneeze, or speak. These droplets may come into contact with the mouths or noses of nearby individuals. Therefore, wearing masks to protect ourselves and others is of utmost importance. However, it is less common to contract the flu by touching a contaminated surface or object and then touching their mouth, nose, or eyes. 

While most cases of the flu resolve on their own with rest and fluids, certain medications can help alleviate symptoms and shorten the duration of illness

Choosing the Right Flu Medicine In Singapore 

When selecting a flu medicine, several factors come into play. 

1. Signs and Symptoms

Are you experiencing primarily nasal congestion, cough, fever, or body aches? Different medications target different symptoms, so it's essential to choose one that addresses your needs.

2. Age 

Ensure the medication suits your age group, as some flu remedies may be unsafe for children or older adults. If you are worried about the suitability of your little ones, you can now push your worries aside as Glovida-Rx(GRx) has a wide range of medications, even for our little ones.

3. Severity of Illness

The severity of your symptoms may influence your choice of medication. Over-the-counter options may suffice for mild cases, while severe cases may require prescription antiviral drugs. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to seek medical advice first. 

4. Allergies

Make sure you are aware of your allergies and check the ingredients of the medication before purchasing and remember to inform your healthcare advisor!

5. Side Effects 

Be aware of potential side effects associated with the medication and weigh them against the benefits of symptom relief. Some medications can cause drowsiness and hinder your alertness when driving or working. At the same time, they can also be helpful if you have difficulty falling asleep due to your symptoms. Always inform your healthcare practitioner of your preference and lifestyle so that they can recommend the best medication with fewer side effects

6. Medical History

Consider your medical history and any pre-existing conditions. Some flu medications may interact with certain medications or exacerbate underlying health issues, so it's important to consult a healthcare professional before starting any new medication regimen. For example, if you have diabetes, you can opt for a sugar-free cough syrup!
