Google’s Staff Docutor, Dr. Taraneh Ravazi, M.D., warns us that flu season has arrived. How nice of them to give us these tips!

How to treat the flu
Treatment is mainly designed to reduce the symptoms with
– rest
– fluids
– acetominophen (like Tylenol) — not aspirin, especially in those under 18, to avoid Reyes Syndrome, which is a serious neurological disease
– antiviral medications (most effective if started within the first 2 days of onset of symptoms)

I’ll have to agree with rest and fluids: what works for me is sleep and water – lots of it.
