Antiviral Treatments for Influenza – A Guide for General Practitioners
Specific antiviral medications active against influenza viruses have been available on prescription in Australia for over a decade, but they have not been widely used here other than during the 2009 pandemic. This may reflect lack of familiarity with their use, uncertainty about which patients have influenza, and uncertainty about which patients will derive the greatest benefit.
The guide for general practitioners provides useful information about influenza and antiviral medications.
