What is Tamiflu?
Tamiflu is a medicine used for the treatment of Flu (Influenza). It works by attacking the influenza virus and stopping it from replicating. It can also prevent the flu.
How does it work?
Tamiflu aids the immune system by blocking the enzyme responsible for the growth and spread of the influenza virus in the body. This in turn helps to calm down the symptoms as the virus is unable to grow inside the body.
Is Tamiflu right for me?
Tamiflu can only be prescribed if you have symptoms of Type A or B flu or are classified under the risk category. Please note that Tamiflu does not prevent or treat coronavirus.
All medications can cause potential side effects however they are rare. We have listed some commonly reported side effects below:

How long does it take Tamiflu to get rid of the flu?
It usually takes about a week for Tamiflu to work. However, it is still possible to spread the flu even after you have started taking Tamiflu. Therefore, it is important to take Tamiflu as directed and to practice good hygiene habits such as washing your hands often and avoiding close contact with people who are sick. Additionally, it is important to stay home from work or school if you are sick to avoid spreading the flu to others.
Is Tamiflu available over the counter?
Tamiflu is a prescription medication, so it cannot be obtained over the counter. You will need to talk to your healthcare provider to see if Tamiflu is right for you and to obtain a prescription.
Is this medication suitable for me?
Please get in touch with a doctor if you are unsure what medication is suitable for you. You can also complete our online consultation form to check your eligibility for the product.
How is the medication delivered?
All orders placed before 14:00 from Monday to Friday will be dispatched that day. The orders are sent using 24 Hour Tracked delivery provided by Royal Mail. Items will usually arrive the very next day after the order has been placed. We also provide tracking for your orders to check the status and location of your parcel. All our medication is packaged in plain confidential padded white or brown envelopes. This ensures that your orders are discreet, and the content of the orders will be for your eyes only.
Is Tamiflu a form of antibiotic?
No, Tamiflu is not a form of antibiotic. It is an antiviral medication that is used to treat the flu. Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections and are not effective against viral infections like the flu.
When is it best to take Tamiflu?
It is best to take Tamiflu as soon as possible after you have been exposed to the flu virus or if you have developed symptoms of the flu. Taking Tamiflu within two days of exposure may help reduce your risk of developing the flu, and taking it within 48 hours of symptom onset may help reduce the severity and duration of your illness. However, Tamiflu can still be effective even if it is started later than two days after exposure or 48 hours after symptom onset. Therefore, if you think you have the flu, you should talk to your healthcare provider about whether Tamiflu is right for you.

Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product.
