Influenza is an infection that is caused by the influenza virus. Unfortunately, viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Although the symptoms of the flu are similar to general cold symptoms, it usually comes on more suddenly, and the symptoms are more widespread. These symptoms include fever, chills, muscle aches, joint aches, sweats, cough, shortness of breath, weakness, tiredness, and upper respiratory symptoms.

Our SwiftMD physicians can provide a treatment plan to direct you on your next steps, including SARS CoV-2 testing if necessary. On some occasions, an anti-viral may be prescribed. There may be some vitamins and supplements that may help your immune system as well. We are always available for any questions you may have.
