My daugher was diagnosed recently with the flu; she is 7. She had a high temp of over 102. After one dose, her fever has broke and she's fine now. She hasn't experienced any side effects except she complains with her legs aching. This is day number 3 and she stills coughs but the fever is gone.

This is the first day my 11 year old son started taking Tamiflu. So far no vomiting or any of the horrible side affects that have been described by others here. I am scared now after reading so many of the problems others have had. I'm keeping a close eye and praying all will be fine. Will report back.

Comment:
my 4 year old daughter got the flu and i had to give the medicine to her twice a day. She threw up everyday and her fever was up and down. At first i thought the medicine was not helping until the sixth day. she took the medicine for five days and the next morning, she was herself. Bouncing off the walls.TAmiflu does help but dont skip a dose.
