Some patients may be prescribed an antiviral drug that can reduce the duration of the illness. It’s particularly important to visit a physician for flu treatment if you are at an increased risk of experiencing serious complications of the flu. At-risk groups include:

  • Adults over the age of 65
  • People who have compromised immune systems as a result of cancer treatment, HIV/AIDS, corticosteroid use, and other factors
  • Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
  • People who are obese with a BMI of 40 or higher
