Had the flu symptoms over the weekend, didn't get to the doctor until day 5, but was still having on & off symptoms. Took Tamiflu for 5 days, 2 pills a day. immediately felt better, and by day 5 of meds all symptoms gone. Only side effect, I got a heat rash in cleavage area of breasts with terrible itch. Anti-itch cream making it go away.
