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.

Comment:
Why the Tami Flu is $129.00 for 10 capsules? Where this drug is made? Who are all getting a share of the excessive profit, CDC? FDA. Doctors in AMA? We need a probe of the drug manufacturing and how the price is fixed? The leaflets says it is not effective for all types of Flu!!
