What do YOU do when you feel the flu coming on?
do you reach for Vit C,paracetomol.....??
what do you take when you feel it coming on?

dose up on cold&flu tablets then do all the jobs that i need doing for the next day in case i feel bad in the morning.

paracetamol, hot drinks, warm blankets and a friendly dog. zaps it every time.

call the doctor because you can get meds to reduce the symtoms and length of the flu. it is called Tamiflu.

If it's really flu you've got by the time you're feeling the symptoms, it's too late to do anything. The best thing is to go to bed and drink plenty of fluid, keep warm and wait for your body to recover.

Vitamin C, lots of fluid and bed for 24 hours if I can manage it, then a hot shower and I feel fine.

I double up on the Vit C (I normally take 500mg a day so I go to 1000mg), make a big pot of chicken soup (actually a miracle drug of its own), take Tylenol Cold And Flu and drink lots of water. Oh and sleep alot.

load up on fluids and sleep

Go to the pub and get smashed. Works everytime :-)

I tend to swear! Then i decide no matter how much medication im going to take, its still going to develop, so i just dont take any at all!! The flu usually lasts about 3 days with me, the 3rd being the worst, then i can tell my immune system is fighting it off, as on the 4th day im usually feeling better! I believe no matter how many pills or vitamin C, or the millionth bowl of soup you take, it wont make a difference! Its going to develop in your system, and then once its fully developed your immune system will kick in and kill it off!

nothing, i just wear a thick t-shirt to bed and try and sweat it out of me

regards x kitti x

I take Ester-C, drink lots of tea, Tylenol and early to bed.

Red Dave
I,m a man so man flu means plenty of whisky & retreat to bed for a week or so.

Do you mean real flu or a bad cold? With a bad cold I would throw every remedy in the book at it in an effort to try and dry it up so I could get back to normal asap. With real flu, which most of us will only experience once or twice in a lifetime (thankfully) I am lucky if I can stagger to the kitchen to get a glass of water... I would basically sleep as much as possible and take Paracetamol. Not much else you can do....
