    I don't really know if it has helped me. I came into the doctor with sore muscles, a stomach ache, headache, sore throat, cough, the works...

    My 22 month old daughter was diagnosed with influenza B. Her first and second doses (30ml) were immediately thrown up. I ended up mixing it with her juice. Upon calling our pharmacist, she said that it is one of the major problems with this medication. My daughter was able to keep it down with juice and I started to see her feeling better within hours.

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
