 5  Influenza Insomnia, Nausea (if I didn't eat with the medicine) This helped put me back together within 24 hrs of taking it. I had a fever for 3 days (highest 102.4), lower back pain, congestion, sinus all clogged. Started taking the medicine, 24 hrs later no fever. 48 hrs later, just a runny nose. F 29 5 days

 2  Influenza-A Palpitations,insomnia, increased blood pressure and also experiencing bad cotton mouth. The latter part is tolerable. But this is clearly not for me. As I can not sleep bc I feel I've taken 5 stackers and washed them down with a couple of red bull energy drinks. This is awful. I do have other aches and pains but at this point it is hard to say if from Tamiflu or the flu itself. F 33 2 days

 5  Flu symptoms Weird dreams. Nothing else that I can relate to the addition of this drug. My fever had spiked to 102.3 when I took the first dose. I was weak to the point of feeling like I was going to pass out when trying to walk. I took the first dose and napped for about 4 hrs. When I woke fever was down to around 99.5 and I felt so much better it was amazing. Fever was completely gone during 2nd day on it and currently on day 3 and feel mostly normal. Now just need to get rid of the remaining congestion and cough. F 44 3 days

 4  Influenza A My son was given this after testing positive for influenza A. He started it about a day and a half after symptoms started. He was so sick...this was the scariest sickness ever. After his 4th dose, he broke out in hives. So I discontinued it. It worked though and he started feeling better after the third dose. I also took it as a preventative and am still taking it. No terrible side effects for me. Anything would be better than the flu. I've never seen someone so sick. 2 2 days

 1  Flu type A Felt depressed, severe rash started on 2nd day so I discontinued tami flu. Still have hives and had to see doctor after day 4. This is maybe a miracle drug for some and for others it feels like death. It is all how your body metabolizes the medicine I suppose. For me I will never ever touch it again. Horrible depression, hives and no appetite whatsoever. Praying for a quick recovery from this poison. F 29 10 days

He was saying the were chasing him and he was seeing things that were not there. I do not recommend giving this product to your child.

He was saying he didn't want to loose his feet and mumbling words and just freaking out. I have never seen my child do this before now. He would also look at me and scream and cry like I was wearing a scary mask or something. I would not and will not give this to my children or anyone else that I might know. M 5 5 days

Fever of 102 and severe hip and leg aches. Could barely walk into centra care. Doc gave me Tamiflu and z pac. Took right when I got home. Also took more tylenol. Fever wasn't going going down but so tired went to bed at 10 pm. Woke up at 130 am, fever still high, took more motrin. At 4 am fever went down to 100.1 and I felt so much better. Still feel better.

 1  Influenza A Vomiting, stomach pains, hallucinations (kept pointing and saying "she's trying to bite me"), strange/nonsensical speech When my daughter took this medicine the side effects were much worse than the side effects of the flu itself. I would not recommend giving this medicine to your child. We stopped giving it to her after her second dose when we realized it was the medicine making her so strange. After three days of having the flu, she was much better and starting to feel more like herself. I think the flu just has to run its course, and I will never again give my child this medicine.

Ohh and has a heart murmur since... thanks Tamiflu for almost killing my son.. he is one year old and suffering..... The sad part is he can't explain everything!!!!

 5  Flu None so far. I went to UC with a fever, severe back ache, cough, sore throat, etc, etc. I took it last night and woke up feeling a million times better. Still a little cough/sore throat but none of the other symptoms - just after one dose. My son has influenza B so I was able to get Tamiflu started within an hour of my first symptoms. I am so grateful for Tamiflu. I don't understand these articles saying its a hoax and does not work. Maybe you really have to take it with the onset of symptoms, not so much later. F 46 2 days

 1  FLU I took Tamiflu while I was withdrawing from Paxil. The second day on Tamiflu, I noticed insomnia, headache, teeth chattering and a general spacy feeling in my brain. Over the next few weeks, I have tried to drink beer and coffee, but noticed my system is extremely sensitive to these foods and causes worsening of symptoms. Its been 2 months since I took the last Tamiflu pill and I still have side effects? Are these permanent? Caused by Tamiflu or Paxil related? M 33 2 days

No real appetite, slightly nauseous but I was that way sick before the pill. Woke up this morning and noticed 5 big itchy bumps on injection site (which still hurts like hell btw) and feel a tad itchy in the legs. Since I'm feeling better, I doubt I'll take another. I also do NOT take meds even otc if I can help it. Felt better almost immediately but I also take a lot of probiotics and supplements to boost my immune system. F 35 2 days

 1  Influenza A STAY AWAY FROM TAMIFLU!!! My pedi prescribed my son tamiflu and I'm am livid!! I should have done more research before giving it to him, but about 5 days later he broke out in a crazy allergic rash all over his trunk!! Gave him benedryl and the hives continued for weeks later, and eventually was told to put him on Zyrtec, after being on benedryl for 5 days after the allergic reaction. It's now 3 weeks later and my son still has lingering hives as if he is allergic to something. We are taking him for allergy testing to find out what could be causing these mystery hives but he has never ever been allergic to ANYTHING before this. We have a dog, he eats all types of food and not once in his two years of existence has he ever had a reaction to anything, let alone a crazy reaction days after taking Tamiflu. I have to say that he was also on amoxicillian while taking tamiflu due to a double ear infection, so maybe it was a combination of the two, but he has never reacted to amoxicillian before. - the allergist says he is "dermograhic" which basically is a skin disorder where he hives up from scratching himself or touching his skin!! He has never been like this! Ever!! And I know 2 other people who had similar reactions to tamiflu and some pediatricians won't even prescribe tamiflu to a 2 year old!!! I'm so upset over this!! And have no choice but to blame my idiotic pediatrician!! They really need to ban this drug already!! I only wish we didn't have to find out the hard way M 2 5 days

If you'd like to chat with others about Tamiflu and side effects they encountered or just want some encouragement until your side effects pass, check out this "support group" run by someone who has been dealing with Tamiflu related effects.

 1  Influenza B My 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with Influenza B. We started Tamiflu liquid on day three of her symptoms. I was not happy about starting it as I had read of all the side effects, but her fever was really high. The medicine made her want to vomit, but she kept it down. That night she kept springing up, wanting to get out of bed...almost driven like a motor. She would shout out a few things, and then I would settle her back down. The next morning her fever was down to around 100-101 which was great, however, when she tried to get out of bed she cried because of leg soreness in her calves. This lasted all day...she just crawled everywhere. I did not continue the medication. I am hopeful that the leg pain will be gone today when she wakes up. My son, 15, is on a preventative does as he was leaving on a trip the next morning. He has taken two pills of the same does as my daughter and seems to be fine. From what I read, the liquid seems to have more negative side effects. Maybe that is just a coincidence? F 11 5 days

 1  Type b flu The Tamiflu did help with the symptoms and duration of the flu; however, it has given me HORRIBLE brain fog. I am allergic to most medications and specifically asked the pharmacist if it would cause brain fog and he said no. That obviously was an untruth. After reading these reviews, it sounds like most people on here have experienced brain fog while taking this POISON. I would only recommend this to someone I didn't like. I will not finish the medication after spending money I did not have to begin with. In the future I will endure the flu. I may even call the company who makes this drug that shouldn't even be legal!

 1  Flu with negative test Went to the doctor on Monday with ear infection and sinus infection. I was prescribed a Zpac. I never ran a fever before my ear started hurting. Then on Tuesday night, my fever spiked to 101. That was after 2 full does of the Zpac. I went back to the doctor on Wednesday because I felt like I had been hit by a Mack truck! I had all of the classic flu symptoms. Fever, aches, fatigue, cough. So she tested me and it was negative. She said that they are getting a lot of false negatives. She said that I did have the flu and gave me tamiflu. I took the first 2 doses on Wednesday and then Thursday morning my fever had broke. I took my 1st dose of the day that morning. Throughout the day, I felt itchy but wrote it off because of my job. I took my 2 dose of the day that night about 2-3 hours before bed. When I went to bed, I got so hot and red. I wrote it off as still part of the flu. Then I woke up at midnight with a pretty nasty rash! I took some benadryl and went back to bed. How long does this last? I will not take this ever again! I will also make sure I get the flu shot next year! This is HORRIBLE!!!!!! If I could give it a lower rating, I would have! Why is this still being prescribed if all these people are having such bad reactions?????????? M 36 2 days

 1  Doc said I had quick onset of flu First let me say that I do not believe this med is safe! I have only taken three doses (1 1/2 days) and I've decided that I will never take this again. After each dose I would sweat uncontrollably. That I could have dealt with, but after the second dose I had severe diarrhea. Hard to believe when I hadn't eaten any full meal for days. After the third dose, I noticed insomnia and a yellow hue and halo to my vision. Finally, after having been awake for 18 hours with no rest, I dozed off for a few minutes only to have the worst nightmare. It was like an out of body experience where I was watching an unseen force kill me. I was consciously aware it was a dream where I forced myself to wake up. When I did, my heart was racing and I was crying. F 41 2 days

 1  Diagnosed with flu My precious 6 yer old som was prescribed Tamiflu and I foolishly bought it and gave it to him. HUGE MISTAKE. he became moody and depressed. Even worse, he told me he wanted to kill himself and thought about dying!!! Imagine my shock, dismay, heartbreak!! After researching Tamiflu I discovered this is actually a side effect in children and teens. Japan actually banned the drug because of so many patients committing suicide while on the drug. My son is normally the happiest, most joyful child. Idont know how long his symptoms of depression will last. Prayer and trust in God is our only answer. M 6 4 days

 2  Prescribed by doctor It's 1:40 AM and I can't fall asleep. Ever since I started taking Tamiflu, I haven't been able to get on a normal sleeping pattern. Normally within a few minutes of laying down, I fall asleep. Not now with the Tamiflu keeping me awake. Also feeling bloated and really gassy. Some loss of appetite. Food and drinks have lost some of their taste. The only good thing is that my cough is gone. The insomnia is the biggest surprise related to this drug. This was my first time to take Tamiflu and it will be my last. Not being able to get some good deep sleep has left me feeling zombie-like. Brain is kinda slow and not quite as sharp as usual. After reading other accounts on this website and seeing how it has affected me, I am not finishing my doses and will not be taking this medicine again. M 43 3 days
