 1  The flu My son had this medicine prescribed from his dr... They told me when I asked about the MANY side effects that they are minimal .. I also asked 4 different pharmacists.. DO NOT GIVE THIS POISON to your kids... He over a week later cannot walk well .. Has major pain at times .. Skin is falling off in different parts of his body, mouth sores .. 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!!!! I'm so sick to my stomach over this !!!!!!!!!!!! I came on here to read reviews and had to write, M 1 1 days

 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

 4  Got the Flu75 Got the shot first at the ER and felt great, started feeling sick again about 10 hours later so took the pill then again 12 hours later. 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

 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

 1  I had the Fly Nausea, rash, infections, weakness. I went to the doctor with flu symptoms. He prescribed me Tamiflu and the only side effects I was told by the pharmacist was it could cause nausea and vomiting. I think the pills totally wiped out my immune system. I had a rash on my ankles, wrist, and lower back, my ear piercing became infected, and I got a huge infected pore on my face. All is well and all is healed but I think my body could have fought the flu on it's own. I am mad at my doctor for prescribing me such a strong medicine when I am a healthy 33 year old woman who eats healthy and is physically fit. I have been over the flu for a week and I still feel exhausted. I hope those pills haven't ruined me as I naturally have a strong immune system and this was the first time in about a decade I have had the flu. I am going to continue avoiding the flu shot and if I ever get the flu again I will NOT be taking Tamiflu. I will let my body fight it naturally. There are too many medicines out there and we have become to reliant on them. It's all for the money. Exactly why they won't give us the cure they have for cancer. I won't give my money to the medicine world again. F 33 5 days

She said there is a cure, Anti-Viral Medication. After I took TamiFlu, no real side effects, but now I am worse being sick. Now its really gone into my chest & I have continued constant headache, even after taking tylonol or ibuprophren. I have bad pain in my neck & achy all over. It just seems Ive gotten worse. I plan to continue the whole treatment. Not sure if it was too late to take Tamiflu to help me. Its supposed to shorten the flu. Im on day 5 almost 6 and I feel Terrible & Im missing work too.

I had the flu shot, but still got the flu. Took Tamiflu. Either it was the super flu or Tamiflu did not do anything to "lessen" my flu experience.

 1  Influenza b Not feeling like myself ( not normal), psychosis, hallucinating,Anxiety, depression, weird dreams, nightmares, heart racing, very jittery, confusion, very nauseous ( while taking Tamiflu could not stop throwing up). It is very frightening to go from a normal hard working productive individual and never having any anxiety to having so many problems. It has been almost two years and I still am suffering from anxiety, depression, and confusion. It took a long time for me to feel somewhat " normal". Please do not give to children. the side effects are not worth it. This was poison to my body. Read all the side effects before you decide to take. I would never let anyone that I know take this med. Almost two years after taking this and the lingering side effects make it difficult to feel completely normal. I hope that one day It will all go away. F 37 5 days

 1  flu I have been coughing for over one week, Fever 103.4 every night. Brought it down European style, towels with organic vinegar all over the body. It works better than Ibuprofen.Yesterday i was coughing very bad, the dr. tested me for flu, but it will take 10 days till he has result. He prescribed me Tamiflu. After reading your reviews i decided not to take it.Since i came to USA i am schoked, how easily dr. prescribe strong medicines. My son broke his arm and he got a hydrocodone prescription for 2 weeks. Are you kidding me? Hydrocodone is forbidden in many parts in Europe, only in hospital special cases. You get it here like bonbons. Also other pain pills, no wonder half of the country is pain pill addicted. It is the dr. mistake, not to inform you,keep you in the dark. It is great, you can share your experience and should be a duty of every person first to check, what dr. prescribed you.

 1  Positive flu test Insomnia; Dizzyness; Sensation of spinning or whirling; "Brain Fog" ; Bizarre, vivid dreams; Diarrhea; Head pain (different type of pain to what I'd had before taking Tamiflu); Joint pain; Restlessness For the first time in over 2 decades of no flu shots and not having the flu in all that time, I got the flu from my daughter. I started taking Tamiflu within the 24 hour window of my first symptoms. (Just a few days after my daughter was diagnosed and confirmed with the flu.) It is well over a week later, and minus a fever, I am just as sick with my flu symptoms as I was at the beginning. But now, I have all these other negative symptoms. I cannot sleep, and sleep is essential when fighting the flu and other illnesses. I quit taking Tamiflu, but now have to wait for the med to cycle out of my system. I will never take this medication again. The insomnia alone outweighs any "benefits" in my decision to refuse this medication in the future. I respect others choice to take it, and while it's great that some people have had no side effects and got over their flu having taken Tamiflu... I, for one, will not recommend it to anyone, and if I ever have the flu again, I will definitely refuse to take this medication. F 41 1 weeks

 4  Flu-tested positive Stomach pain and diarhea, but flu symptoms greatly lessened within hours. People need to remember that the flu itself and other drugs( ie NyQuill) can cause psychological changes. I had the flu 2 years ago with no Tamiflu and had hallucinations. Just sayin. F 36 5 days
