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 quit after 2 doses. Nausea and head to toe bright red rash covering my whole body. Swollen ankles and toes. Am still recovering after going to emergency for help days later. Terrible. I threw the rest away.
