Hello and thanks for the question
I work in an urgent care facility where I am located and also in a local ER and our Drs have been giving Relenza. It is an inhaler-type medication that is useful for prevention of flu where family members are exposed and in close contact. I would suggest that you call up your Dr for a prophylactic antiviral such as Relenza because your immune system is spent and you will stand a high chance of contracting the flu at this time. Relenza is used 2 inhalations per day for 5 days.
The CDC is recommending Relenza because it has shown NO resistance to any of the subtypes of influenza this year where Tamiflu and Amantadine have been.
Hope this helps!
