Tamiflu or Oseltamivir 75mg

About a week ago we had a suspected case of swine flu in the family, so we were given this as treatment. It turned out to just be a common cold or some-such (I still have the cough) but as this is an issue of public interest I thought I'd take a picture of the new wonder drug as supplied by the NHS. One word of warning: if you're prescribed any make sure you read the instructions. If not taken the right way they can apparently make you feel rather sick the first time you take them.


Added some days later....

Well Tamiflu did not make me feel sick and it did seem to work, even though it was not swine flu that we had. I competed the course as we received no instructions to the contrary and I am happy to confirm my miscellaneous cold went away rather quickly. If you're given Tamiflu I think it's important to not be afraid of it and to read the instructions, but other than that I've nothing at all to report about it.


There is some interesting information at although it may be a little American in focus.
