The welts themselves emitted heat, causing his fever to rise. He also would wimper at night due to stomach pains. We stopped the drug and his rash is slowly subsiding, but now looks like his entire body is br ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    Went to the doctor with flu symptoms and complications from asthma, tested positive for Flu A (very likely swine flu). Dr. suggested Tamiflu despite possible side-effects given my history of asthma and pneumonia. He also put me on Prednisone (a steroid). I can't really separate the effects of the two meds, but I felt better within 12 hours of starting them.
