I also take Oscillococcinum 3 times per day It's an OTC flu treatment. It's a little costly, but if it keeps me healthy, it's worth it to me.

I wish there was a clear answer for you. However, even when you are over the flu and Covid, you can keep some symptoms for quite a while. I think I would address the issue of whether your lungs are clear and if you're free of infection. It seems as though those would be the issues. My rheumy has told me to take the Methotrexate as long as I am not running a fever. Best of luck to you...
