Peramivir (Pf)

Pronounced

"per-AM-i-vir"

Common brand names:

Rapivab

Uses

Peramivir is used to treat symptoms caused by the flu virus (influenza) if you have had symptoms for 2 days or less. It helps make the symptoms (such as stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, aches, tiredness) less severe and shortens the recovery time by about 1 to 2 days.

This medication works by stopping the flu virus from growing. It is not a substitute for the flu vaccine. (See also Notes section.)

How to Use This Medication

This medication is given as a single dose as directed by your doctor. It is given slowly into a vein, usually over 15 to 30 minutes. The dosage is based on your medical condition, age, and response to treatment. Children's dosage is also based on weight.

Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens, or if new symptoms appear.
