Can I take dietary supplements for the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus?
No. There are no studies that show you can treat this virus with dietary supplements. For more information about products that claim to prevent, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus go to http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2009/NEW02007.html.
