How does Tamiflu work?

It contains active ingredients that can suppress the influenza virus and prevent it from spreading any further. By preventing the spread of the virus from cell to cell, the symptoms and duration of influenza infections are reduced. If you start taking the medication within 48 hours of becoming infected with the virus, you can reduce the duration of symptoms by a day and a half or more.

Tamiflu is used for the treatment of infections of the influenza virus in adults and children (one year and older) within two days of the symptoms becoming apparent. Although most patients can overcome the virus over time, the treatment is essential for treating those who suffer from underlying health conditions and whose health could be threatened.

Dosage information

Tamiflu can be taken by both adults and children, one year and older. It is also approved for emergency use in children less than one year old. The recommended dose for treating adults is 75 mg twice daily for five days. Children are usually treated with 30-75 mg twice daily. You may not be suitable for it if you pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you are suffering from any of the following disorders, inform your doctor before beginning a course of treatment:

  • Kidney ailments
  • Heart problems
  • Viral infections besides influenza A / B
  • Liver diseases
  • Lung Problems

How to take Tamiflu

It works best if taken within two days of you experiencing any symptoms. Tamiflu reduces the severity of symptoms and shortens the length of time you feel unwell. It can also be used to prevent someone from becoming infected, if they have had close contact with someone who has flu.

It's important to know the difference between proper flu and a cold because, influenza can be very dangerous to people with asthma or similar lung problems, the elderly or the very young. But even paediatric patients with underlying health conditions such as asthma can take this medication on expert advice.

Are there side effects?

Tamiflu is well tolerated and rarely causes side effects. In a small number of cases, it has led to nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, bronchitis, abdominal pain, headache and dizziness. These effects were not typically long lasting, and discontinued quickly after treatment was ceased.

Ordering Tamiflu online

To buy online at 121doc, you will need to fill in a short medical consultation form to make sure you are safe and suitable for this treatment. This information will be checked by one of our doctors. If, based on the information given, you are suitable for this treatment, they will issue a prescription.

The medication will then be dispatched from our pharmacy for next day delivery, so you can start fighting the virus as quickly as possible. We accept payment by all major credit cards and bank transfer. If you wish to discuss payment issues please don't hesitate to contact us directly by telephone or 121doc Live Chat.

How can I trust online medication?

Purchasing any kind of prescription medication privately online can be risky, because there are many unreliable websites that claim that they sell authentic medications. It's very important that that you check whether the medication you purchased is the real thing, as counterfeit medications may not be effective or could contain harmful ingredients.

As Tamiflu is a prescription medication, it is illegal to sell it to anybody without a consultation prior to purchase. If you didn't have any kind of medical questions asked of you before you purchased your medications, either over the phone or via an online consultation form, then it is strictly advisable that you do not take the medication. Responsible websites will only allow you to buy Tamiflu online after your medical details are checked by a doctor.

121doc always requires that patients complete a consultation form online that will be reviewed by one of our GMC qualified doctors. We never dispense treatment until our doctors are satisfied or without a prescription.

What is included in the online consultation?

Our consultations include general questions about your health (e.g. blood pressure levels, current and past conditions), as well as specific questions related to your selected treatment. We will also request relevant personal information to complete payment and delivery.

All questions are necessary, and your answers and details will not be shared with any third-parties. Only our doctors have access to your medical information.

Will a doctor review my consultation?

It is a legal and medical requirement that a doctor first reviews all completed consultations. We have a team of in-house doctors and specialists who will ensure your selected treatment is safe for your use. All information is stored securely and confidentially.

Please note, we do not guarantee that our doctors will approve treatment.

What happens after I submit my order?

Your consultation will be sent directly to our medical team, where it will be reviewed by one of our doctors.

If your chosen treatment is deemed suitable for your use, they will issue a prescription. Your prescription is then forwarded to our pharmacy, where your medication will be dispensed and dispatched for courier delivery.

Is the price all-inclusive?

Yes. All 121doc orders include a medical consultation, a prescription and next-day delivery. There are no additional costs. We believe in providing a safe and easy-to-use service.

Can I place more than one order at a time?

Yes. However, certain medications may negatively interact with each other. Our doctors may not approve your order on this basis.

You can place multiple items in one basket, and complete a consultation for all.

If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, you will have to complete a separate consultation.

What are my delivery options?

We offer several delivery options:

  • Next-day delivery
  • UPS Access Point - convenient parcel drop-off and collection near your home or work address
  • Nominated-day delivery - choose the most convenient day for delivery

All these options can be tracked and require a signature on delivery. If you are not available, a friend or relative can sign in your place.

None of these options will incur an additional charge.

Is it safe to buy prescription medication online?

To ensure you are purchasing from a reputable company, you should look to see their country’s regulatory bodies verify them.

In the UK, this is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Certificates can be viewed here.

How do I know which treatment is best for me?

Some treatments also offer the 'Advise Me' function. You will be asked questions about your lifestyle and needs, plus medical questions. You will then be presented with the advice of our doctors.

Is this service discreet?

Our patients’ privacy is of utmost importance. All your medical information is securely stored and only viewed by our doctors. We do not share your details with third-parties. We are also regularly inspected by various UK regulatory agencies, such as the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

All orders will only show on invoices, bank statements, etc. as ‘HHC Ltd’.
