Tablets can be used to alleviate the symptoms of the flu, such as fever, headache, and body aches. However, it’s important to note that you should always consult with a healthcare professional before taking any medication, including over-the-counter tablets.
That being said, some common over-the-counter tablets that may help alleviate flu symptoms include:
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol): This medication can help reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pains.
- Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin): This medication can help relieve pain and reduce fever.
- Aspirin (Bayer, Bufferin): This medication can help reduce fever and relieve minor aches and pains, but it’s not recommended for children under 18 years old due to the risk of a rare but serious condition called Reye’s syndrome.
It’s important to note that some people may not be able to take certain medications due to medical conditions or interactions with other medications they are taking. Always consult with a healthcare professional before taking any medication.
