Comment:
I felt the need to come here and give a positive review after seeing all the negativity here... I've taken Tamiflu on two separate occasions (once after I was hospitalized to rehydrate) and it has worked miracles both times. I find that eating quite a bit before taking the pill helps immensely with this "out of body" feeling that people are having. I have it too if I don't eat we ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started taking Tamiflu on day 2 of the flu. Within a couple of hours had strong nausea, which continued unabated for 36 hours. Once I discontinued the drug the nausea eventually subsided. I'm not sure what effect the drub had on my illness, but taking it felt much worse than the flu by itself.
