What is Tamiflu?
Tamiflu is an antiviral medicine that helps treat symptoms caused by the flu virus or influenza. It helps in blocking the actions of influenza virus types A and B in your body. It reduces the severity of symptoms (such as stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, aches, and tiredness) and speeds up recovery by 1-2 days.
This medicine can also be used to prevent influenza in people who have been exposed to the virus but have not yet developed symptoms. You can buy Tamiflu online or from a local pharmacy store.
Tamiflu is an antiviral medication that helps treat flu symptoms in people who have had them for less than two days. This medicine also helps protect people who have been exposed to influenza but have not yet developed symptoms. This medication will not help you with a common cold.
Tell your doctor before taking Tamiflu if you have received a nasal flu vaccine within the past 2 weeks or if you have kidney disease, heart disease, lung disease, or any other serious disease or health problem. Tell your doctor if you have a condition that causes swelling or a brain disorder.
Even if you start to feel better, keep taking Tamiflu for the prescribed duration. Your symptoms may start to improve even before the infection is fully treated.
Some people taking oseltamivir have reported symptoms such as sudden confusion, delirium, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or self-injury. These signs and symptoms have been seen most frequently in children. It is unclear whether this medication was the root of the symptoms. However, anyone taking this medication should be on the lookout for signs of confusion or unusual behavior. If you or your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your doctor right away.
What to know before taking Tamiflu?
You should not take Tamiflu if you are allergic to oseltamivir.
When treating flu symptoms in children younger than 2 weeks old, do not use oseltamivir. This medication helps prevent flu symptoms in children as young as one year old.
Tell your doctor if you ever had the following conditions:

- a condition causing swelling or disorder of the brain
- if you have used a nasal flu vaccine (FluMist) within the past 2 weeks
- hereditary fructose intolerance
- kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis)
- a weak immune system which may be caused by disease or by using certain medicine
It is unclear whether this medication will harm an unborn child. Infection with influenza during pregnancy, on the other hand, can result in birth defects, low birth weight, preterm delivery, or stillbirth. If you are pregnant, your doctor will determine whether you should take oseltamivir.
Pregnant women should get a yearly flu vaccine to prevent influenza, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Oseltamivir should not be used instead of the annual flu shot.
Tamiflu does not appear to pass into breast milk, nor does it appear to harm a nursing baby. If you are nursing a child, let your doctor know.
