I didn't know I had the flu for about 2 days. I finally went to the emergency room where I was prescribed Tamiflu. The effects at first were fine...but coming off of it towards the end had me agitated, nervous, and confused. I've had some violent feelings that I've never felt before and it was unusual for me. I really don't reccomend any type of pharmaceutical drug unless you reall ... Show Full Comment
