As already mentioned, a universal means for the destruction of the virus does not exist.Since the virus enters the cell and replicates person inside it, then destroy the virus without harming the host cell, is practically impossible.Antiviral drugs are at different stages of viral entry into the cell: cell resistance to reinforce, strengthen their membrane interact with the virus, "binding" in its attempt reproduction, etc.However, officially recognized scientific fact is that antiviral drugs have a small breadth of therapeutic action.They are most effective at preventing or stage in the first 3 days of the disease.It is best to fight the virus topical medications that are applied to the mucous membrane of the nasopharynx (oxolinic ointment, anti-spray for the throat).We'll talk in this article about the preparations for the destruction of the influenza virus.
based preparations of human interferon
Initially interferon obtained exclusively from the blood, are now available drugs based on interfer
injections of interferon, which people themselves sometimes prescribed for the prevention of influenza, offer a wide variety of side effects.One of them - the so-called "trace effect", in which a private function is extinguished immunity.However, preparations based on human interferon (especially in the form of suppositories) accelerate recovery and safe to use.Another type of drugs to maintain immunity and prevention of viral diseases - probiotics that normalize the composition of intestinal microflora.The fact that in the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract is about 80% of the immune cells, so the ability to resist viruses depends on the state of the intestinal microflora.
interferon inducers (amiksin, Poludanum, inovir et al.) - Immune-boosting drugs, which stimulate the body's own production of interferon on to fight viruses.
synthetic compounds (Arbidol, rimantadine, oksalin, bonafton etc.) - Are struggling with the virus at various stages of its penetration into the cell.With self-prescribing, and even synthetic antiviral medicines there is a risk of incorrect treatment.Each of these drugs affect best for a particular virus (arbidol - influenza viruses A and B, oxoline - on viral rhinitis, etc.).It is theoretically possible to make the analysis, what kind of flu virus will attack you.But such tests are too expensive and, as a rule, results are ready after the illness has passed.So you buy a drug that may ease your symptoms, but it may not.
Antiviral drugs of plant origin (proteflazid, Imupret etc.) - Is immune-boosting drugs that speed up recovery.Antivirals may be produced in virtually any dosage forms for oral administration: Tablets, powders, drops, syrups, etc.A separate category consists of drugs for topical application: nasal drops, ointments and gels for application to the mucosa of the nasopharynx, nasal sprays and throat, etc.
If we know that acetaminophen - the safest drug, why on earth, we need all the rest?Not all children can be equally effectively and quickly bring down heat.For example, there are children who are more responsive to acetaminophen or ibuprofen.Furthermore, paracetamol and ibuprofen may be combined.If the syrup is based on paracetamol for 40 minutes had no effect, giving an additional dose of the syrup is not recommended by the manufacturer in order to avoid overdose.But you can put a candle on the basis of ibuprofen - then the action of drugs mutual efforts, and the temperature is likely to creep down.
To lower the temperature in Russian pharmacies are selling drugs on the basis of paracetamol, ibuprofen, dipyrone, aspirin and nimesulide.According to WHO, the most safe drug - paracetamol.It is used since 1955 And during that time has established itself as a drug with minimal side effects.If the reaction to it, and there are, then it is connected with individual intolerance to the drug.
second place safety are based on the drug ibuprofen.This is followed by aspirin, which among other things thins the blood and should be used with caution by people suffering from cardiovascular diseases.In addition, aspirin can have side effects with children, sick viral disease (particularly influenza).One of the rare, but serious complications - Reye's syndrome (acute hepatic encephalopathy), most often occurs in children 4-12 years old.Symptoms of Reye's syndrome - nausea and vomiting, enlarged liver of 30-40%, redness and peeling of the skin.This condition is life threatening and requires immediate hospitalization of the child.At the last place on the safety and side effects of nimesulide is so antipyretic drugs based on it can be found infrequently.Conventional "monotabletki" pharmacies gradually yielded to a powder for making hot drinks.
