Treatment for Mono
If your doctor suspects mono because of any of its symptoms, he or she may suggest that you undergo a blood test to rule out the other causes of the symptoms. In the blood test, the reports may show an increase in a particular type of white blood cells. When viewed under a microscope, some of these lymphocytes may have an unusual appearance that suggests mono. In fact there are a couple of other tests that can be done to confirm mono. These include the monospot and the heterophile anti body test.
In most instances of mono, there is no need for any specific treatment. The treatment is essentially directed towards providing relief from the symptoms. The antiviral drugs available have no effect on mono and in fact may actually prolong the illness.
