Likewise, people ask, are you still contagious after taking Xofluza?
No, You can still make other people sick even if you're taking antiviral mediations that treat the flu. The CDC recommends four FDA-approved drugs to treat the flu: , baloxavir marboxil (Xofluza), oseltamivir (Tamiflu), peramivir (Rapivab), and zanamivir (Relenza).
Likewise, how long should you stay home with the flu? Stay at home while you have the flu, and for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine. Once your fever is gone for a day, you're no longer contagious and can return to work or school. Also, you will recover more quickly if you get some rest.
Regarding this, does Xofluza make you less contagious?
Xofluza can also reduce the amount of time a person is sick by more than a day. And, equally as important, Xofluza could possibly stop the spread of flu faster than Tamiflu. By comparison, Xofluza was shown to only cause mild side effects in clinical trials, such as cold-like symptoms and headaches.
Can you be a carrier of the flu and not get it?
Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those people may still spread the virus to others.
