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.
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:
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.
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.
