Flu Treatment in Orlando, FL

Flu Treatment Orlando FLDo you need flu treatment? Symptoms like fever, chills, and body aches as well as a persistent cough, stuffy nose, and sore throat can make you feel downright miserable. But, if you’re a member of Optimum Direct Care – a direct primary care practice in Orlando, Florida, you don’t have to go it alone. That’s because you have unlimited access to our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro, who can provide prompt and effective flu treatment when you need it.

What Does Flu Treatment Involve?

Influenza is a viral infection that generally must run its course. However, Dr. Muzzi can help you feel better in the meantime. For instance, she may recommend a pain reliever, cough suppressant, or decongestant to help you manage your uncomfortable symptoms (the flu virus does not respond to antibiotic treatment).

If you are age 65 or older, pregnant, or have a chronic illness or weakened immune system, you may have an elevated risk of developing flu complications, such as bronchitis and pneumonia. After evaluating your medical history and symptoms, Dr. Muzzi may prescribe an antiviral medication to slow the spread of the infection within your body and help your immune system fight it more effectively.

In any case, flu treatment always involves getting lots of rest and drinking plenty of fluids. This is the best way to accelerate your recovery. Also, the influenza virus is contagious, which is another reason you should stay home and avoid close contact with others for a few days.

“There is no better care available than with Optimum Direct Care (ODC). We have been with Dr. Muzzi and Erin for several years now. The attention to detail, quick response and holistic approach to your health is unrivaled. They provide peace of mind for always knowing you can reach your doctor anytime. There is no waiting, no repeating who you are and your history over and over. No making multiple calls to the doctors office for requesting your prescription refills or holding your breath to be able to make an appointment for urgent care. We love the direct care model as we were part of another similar practice in the area before coming to Dr Muzzi. However they charged not only premium prices for monthly membership but in addition a top dollar price for every visit. With ODC it is just your monthly membership fee. Our family highly recommends Dr. Muzzi and ODC. They feel like our extended family. ”
