On Friday my son was diagnosed with the flu after spending the entire night before coughing. All 5 of us were started on Tamiflu to prevent family wide infection. It was difficult to locate the medicine as many pharmacies around here are out of stock.
$300 later I had the 5 prescriptions and we began.
Two days later four of us are coughing, aching and headachy. The only person seemingly unaffected, thus far, is the family member who did not get a flu vaccine…my husband. For the record I’m a big advocate of vaccinations, but, WTF!?!
Ugh. I’m not quite sure how this Tamiflu is supposed to work. All I know is that this house is producing a wide and disgusting assortment of coughs that has kept me awake for the past few nights!
Have you had any experience with Tamiflu?
