January 2018 Pharmacy Pearls: Flu Treatment and Prophylaxis

January 11th, 2018 | NewsPharmacy Pearls

In light of the recent uptick in flu cases, please see the bulletin below regarding treatment and post-exposure prophylaxis. Prior to prescribing to lower risk patients, we encourage you to weigh the benefit of a 12 – 24 hour reduction in symptoms with the risks of GI intolerance and potential for antiviral resistance.

Stay healthy!
