Combivir (Lamivudine, Zidovudine)

This morning you felt like the race horse of the professional world, ripsnortin’ through your duties a mile ahead of the pack. But by midafternoon you feel more like an aching, dragging, dripping nag. Clearly, you’re not going to win by a nose today—not one that’s this runny.
While colds and flu are unlikely to land you in intensive care, they can keep you in the stable for a few days. What’s more, they’re extremely difficult to avoid. Colds can be caused by more than 200 rhinoviruses—the word literally means nose viruses—and are among the most common illnesses people get. In addition, about one in four Americans gets the flu every year. Among the elderly and infirm the infection rate is even higher, approaching one in two.
How common: Colds and flu are among the most common causes of illnesses worldwide. Each year in the United States they cause 26 million days of missed school and 23 million days of missed work.
Risk factors: Seasons (fall, winter and early spring), stress, allergies, smoking, poor nutrition, being close to an infected person.
Age group affected: Kids younger than age five average 6 to 12 respiratory illnesses a year. In adults, who gradually accumulate protective antibodies, the average is 3 to 4.
Gender gap: Women get more colds than men, possibly because they’re likely to spend more time with children or in healthcare settings.
Who to see: For a difficult cold or flu, talk to a pharmacist or your family doctor. If you have hoarseness, pain in the chest, breathing difficulty or extended vomiting, be sure to get to your family doctor.
