 5  Exposure to flu with symptoms start My symptoms were mild compared to other years where I have had the flu. I took it right at the first sign of symptoms because my husband already had the flu and was very ill. I usually have lingering cough with gross stuff coming up from my lungs for weeks after any cold or flu, but I was over this one in 3 to 4 days and never felt really bad. This was my second experience with the drug and similar to the first. I also took one pill just before getting my flu shot one year and had no symptoms of the flu like I would typically get after the flu shot. I had no adverse reaction to this drug. I would take it again, but everyone is different. F 48 5 days

 1  INFLUENZA B It did make me feel like I had a hallucination but could have been flu. This drug did not help at all even taking it I was sick for 30+ days. I'm a healthy individual and have perfect levels in my blood. To me this dragged the flu out besides making it shorter. Then when I stopped, I felt fine a few days and got sick again for two more weeks. So, my opinion its like it slows the duplication of the virus and when you stop it boom it goes back to duplicating fast. So it dragged my flu out. Not only that, but I felt horrible. I mean I never was this sick in my life. I'm just glad this season I can't catch B again because its more rare and obviously vicious. M 33 10 days

 1  Prevent getting flu from wife Racing heart, delirious, nightmares, shallow breathing. My breathing grew worse every day so I quit taking it after 4 days. Breathing gradually got worse even after stopping medicine. Ended up in ER two weeks later with heart failure. Have had every heart test done and it's a small chance that I recover from this within a year. If no improvement, I may need heart transplant. If you are considering taking this, do not do it unless you have no other choice! M 47 4 days

 1  Ingluenza B flu Nausea, headaches, vomitting I took 9 out 10 pills recommended to treat the flu. In day 4 and 5 I ve experienced hours of anxiety. But the surprise comes after like 2 weeks when I started to have very strong panic attacks, pain in my heart and in body, depression, high anxiety, with no other reason to feel like this. Thing that used to make me happy, like doing my job, go to the gym, have my friend around now seem a non sense to me. Hope it will pass with therapy F 33 5 days

 3  Flu Severe nausea and vomiting that started less than 20 mins after the pill and continued for a full day, couldnít even hold in water, ended up hydrating with an I.v. line. Dizziness, stupor (not hallucinating but inability to focus or respond to stimulation); terrible night sweats (but I think the flu is responsible for that); bitter taste in the mouth and in the vomit, stomach pain; muscular pain from severe dehydration I had a severe case of flu, after the first symptom it took less than 6 hrs for high fever, coughing and muscular pain to appear. I feel, it helped with the flu symptoms thatís why I kept taking it after the first pill, but I quit after the 3 rd dose and 2 days of vomiting... F 32 2 days

 1  Flu My child had hallucinations. Would stare into space & not be able to answer us for a few minutes. Wouldn't recommend this drug. This happened on more than one occasion. She took it when she was 6 and 8, but wasn't able to communicate that she was having hallucinations. But a few years later she could tell us the awful hallucinations and nauseous effects of tamiflu.

 5  Flu type A I took tamiflu within first 24 hours of a confirmed case of flu type A. I was amazed, the drug basically just stopped the flu dead in its tracks. I think it has given me a bit of insomnia, but Iíll take that over the flu. I didnít finish full 5 days of meds because the pharmacist said it wasnít necessary if I was doing well. HOWEVER I tried to give this to my 16 month old in liquid form given to me by her pediatrician and she vomited everytime within seconds. It really upset me. All this food she had eaten came up and I felt like a shit mom even though I was just trying to help her. So while I personally tolerated the medicine well my toddler did not. So itís not for everyone. I say give it a try, but stop taking it a day after you feel better, itís not like antibiotics you will not create resistance. See side effects F 37 3 days

TAMIFLU  (OSELTAMIVIR PHOSPHATE):  Oseltamivir is used to treat symptoms caused by the flu virus (influenza). It helps make the symptoms (such as stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, aches, tiredness) less severe and shortens the recovery time by 1-2 days. This medication may also be used to prevent the flu if you have been exposed to someone who already has the flu (such as a sick household member) or if there is a flu outbreak in the community. Talk to your doctor for more details. This medication works by stopping the flu virus from growing. It is not a substitute for the flu vaccine. (See also Notes section.)   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
