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 be used as a prophylactic to prevent Flu.
How does it work?
Tamiflu is neuraminidase inhibitor, it aids the immune system by blocking the enzyme responsible for the growth and spread of the influenza virus in the body. This allows the immune system to recover and fight the viral infection using its own immune response.
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. Also, Tamiflu may not be suitable if the following applies:
- If you are allergic to oseltamivir or any of the other ingredients
