My treatment for non-polio enterovirus infection was self-selected ibuprofen, guaifenesin, cough suppressant, and staying home. The doctor prescribed an albuterol inhaler, antibiotic (to use if symptoms did not improve), codeine cough medicine, and prednisone. The prednisone has helped a lot as has the cough medicine. I continue to stay at home to prevent infecting my grandchildren and hospitalized husband.
