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.

“When I left my corporate job to start my own business, one of many new challenges was finding quality health care. When I was starting to look for a new Primary Care Doctor, a peer recommended Direct Primary Care. I did some research and found Dr. Muzzi. In the years leading up to finding Dr. Muzzi, the way I think about my health evolved to fit a more modern view of health and science with a focus on overall wellness and preventative medicine. I was surprised and delighted on my first visit to find Dr. Muzzi not only shared this view, but was practicing medicine in this way. Focusing on my overall wellness rather than treating symptoms has improved my quality of life and undoubtedly add quality years to my life. Dr. Muzzi knows me. She knows what I do for work, where I travel, sports and activities, our pets, what I wear to Burning Man and even knows my Dad (who approves!). Taken at face value, this may seem like a cute note to show that we’re friendly. But this depth of knowledge is organically woven into the care she provides every time we speak and my health is better for it. I never imagined Dr. Muzzi existed before I found her. Now, I can’t picture a future of my healthcare without her. If the traditional Doctor / Patient relationship makes you feel like you’re stuck in I4 traffic (frustrated & certain no one will ever fix it) and you want to change that, you’re in the right place.”
