    Tamiflu was prescribed for our 6 year old son after having been diagnosed with the flu. He received his first does around noon the first day and his second dose approx. 9 hours later. About an hour or so after his second dose, while he was asleep, he woke up extremely confused and disoriented. He kept saying that things were flying around his head and that there were strings in his head. He ba ... Show Full Comment

    It works fine for me. No side effects. I tested positive for Influenza Type A. I think most people had problems with this because they should never have been prescribed it. Some said they weren't even tested for the flu, just prescribed it as a precaution. There is a difference between Influenza and "The Stomach Flu" which is really Gastroenteritis. It is expensive, I paid $117 ... Show Full Comment

    I am 30 years old and I was prescribed Tamiflu after being diagnosed with the flu. I felt better within a few hours of taking it. I was amazed. I was really sick and was worried that I may have to be hospitalized. I had been running a high fever and could hardly breathe. The only downside were the side effects. They were pretty bad. It left a terrible taste in my mouth and made everything I ate a ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Doctor told me "no cure for the flu, we can just stop it in it's tracks". Found out my husband and I were infected by a friend we bowled with two nights before. I chose the Tamiflu, my husband decided to sweat it out - literally. Threw up after the first dosage. After the second dosage (eating a snack before taking this time) got diarrea. But my symptoms slowly dissapeared. So did my ... Show Full Comment
