TAMIFLU: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Influenza “I’m the RN who’s review is just below who’s unit was shut down. I’m on day 5 now last day of Tamiflu and this medication rocks! It reduced the intensity of the flu and I was feeling better by day 3. Now day 5, I’m just coughing up phlegm. No side effects at all. I sense others who reviewed this medication who had the flu may have confused their side effects with the flu symptoms? I would for sure repeat this medication again”

For Influenza “I am amazed. Was sick, ached, temp, tired, nauseous, …. really felt awful. Within 8 hours of taking Tamiflu, symptoms diminished. Within 20 hours, 3 doses, only slight sore throat remains! Energy mostly back. Was expecting a miserable 2 weeks. I am grateful. I’ve heard Tamiflu may be more effective with some viruses than others…I was lucky”

For Influenza “Extreme fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, depression and anxiety. I felt so much better before taking this– never had any of those symptoms before.This is awful, there is no way I can finish the prescription.”

For Influenza “I’m an RN and the unit I work on was shut down by the city due to a flu outbreak. No admissions were permitted during this out break. I started to have symptoms (muscle pain, headache, fever alternating with chills and lethargy). Within 24 hrs of the symptoms I took my first dose of 75mg of Tamiflu. I have yet to complete the course of the medication. I’m on my 3rd dose. I’m not sure if it’s made an impact on my symptoms, but, can for say that my experience of the flu in the past was way more intense than now. I feel tamiflu has likely decreased the intensity of the symptoms. I have had no side effects that I am aware of. I will update my review ongoing.”

For Influenza “In order for Tamiflu to work, you need to 1) test positive for influenza and 2) need to start taking it within 1 to 2 days of FIRST symptoms. I started getting a stuffy runny nose and thought it was a cold. Then the next day started feeling tired, body aches and started getting a fever. I went straight to the doctors and did a rapid test which was positive and started taking Tamilfu that evening. Now on day 2, still feel tired but overall much improved with no fever. If you look at the people who are complaining that Tamiflu doesn’t work, it’s because they’ve passed that initial 48 hour period and by then the virus is full blown and the anti viral Tamiflu isn’t going to be as effective.”

For Influenza “I was diagnosed with Flu B two days ago (my symptoms started less than 24hrs before getting diagnosed) and my doctor prescribed me tamiflu. Not only am I still dealing with flu symptoms (high fevers, body aches, etc) Now, I am also dealing with the side effects of this medication. Double whammy! Dizziness, nausea, diarrhea and insomnia (which I find ironic considering the doctors stress how important resting is). On top of that my anxiety is at an all time high. This medication may work for a few but it definitely did more damage than help in my case. I will stop taking after trying it for 2 days.”
