Diagnosed with Type A. On 2nd day of dose, noticed issues with sense of taste: certain foods/condiments inedible. For example, catsup emitted amonnia-like odor.

102 temp for two days. Could barely find strength to get out of bed to use restroom. Went to minute clinic because started to feel short of breath. Diagnosed Flu-A.

I am on my 3rd dose and my muscle aches are subsiding, my runny nose and watery eyes have completely subsided, my fever is gone, no side effects, I feel almost 90% but I will take the 5 day regimen, get rest and take plenty of fluids to make sure I am rid of this!
