Certainly, for part of people which will have the luck not to meet a flu virus in general or if the meeting occurs closer to the end of estimated epidemic, it can play the positive role. But when you feel that here - here you get sick, to change a way of life late - won't help. Interval from the moment of hit of a virus of flu in an organism very short - literally day - two. In this case to stop a virus and not to allow to ache only special antiviral preparations - interferon inductors allow. They stop virus reproduction at an initial stage as soon as it got inside. Therefore inductors of interferon are most effective in the first day of a disease when the person feels that here - here gets sick. Taking medicine, the person won't fall ill or will have flu benign "." Very often the patient really has no opportunity at the first symptoms of flu to run to the doctor. - the family doctor Polina Zagorodnyaya speaks. - In this case it is better to come on the way to a drugstore and most to accept one of antiviral preparations. But such self-treatment has to be responsible: before reception it is necessary to read the summary. "
