Tamiflu is an antiviral prescription medicine to treat or prevent getting the flu, otherwise known as influenza.
Doctors prescribe Tamiflu to patients two years of age and older to shorten the duration of the flu, which can cause symptoms like fever and muscle aches. Tamiflu can also be used to prevent the onset of influenza.
Tamiflu contains the generic ingredient called oseltamivir, which works by inhibiting an enzyme the influenza virus needs to multiply. Tamiflu can decrease the duration of time that the patient experiences symptoms by about one day.
It is very important to start taking Tamiflu no more than two days after flu symptoms appear. Take Tamiflu orally twice daily for five days. You can take this medication with food as there is less chance of stomach upset if taken with a light snack or a meal. You must complete the entire treatment, even if you begin to feel better. For prevention after having contact with a flu patient, take Tamiflu orally once daily for 10 days, or longer if recommended by your doctor.
These may not be all the side effects of Tamiflu 75mg.
Do not use Tamiflu if you are allergic or sensitive to oseltamivir or any ingredient in this formulation. Tamiflu should not be used in children under one year of age.
Tell your doctor about all medications (prescription and non-prescription) that you are taking. Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have any type of kidney disease.
Store Tamiflu capsules in their original labelled container at room temperature (15- 25°C). Keep them in a dry place, away from heat. Keep out of reach of children.
The flu, or influenza, is a respiratory infection caused by influenza viruses, which infect the nose, throat and lungs. It is most common in the fall and winter. Symptoms may include fever, chills, dry persistent cough, sore throat, fatigue, headaches, nasal congestion and muscle or body aches. The flu is highly contagious and the virus enters the body through the nose, mouth or eyes. When a person with the flu talks, coughs or sneezes, the virus becomes airborne in droplets that can infect nearby people. On average, it takes about two days for symptoms to start after being infected by the flu virus. Often people can infect others on the first day, even before their own symptoms appear and up to five to seven days after becoming ill. Most people who get the flu can treat themselves at home and often don't need to see a doctor. If you have flu symptoms and are at risk of complications, see your doctor right away. Pneumonia is the most serious complication. For older adults and people with a chronic illness, pneumonia can be deadly. Taking antiviral drugs within the first 48 hours after you first notice symptoms may reduce the length of your illness and help prevent more serious problems.
