TAMIFLU SUSPENSION (OSELTAMIVIR)

Tamiflu Suspension Description

Tamiflu Suspension is a prescription strength oral medicine used to treat influenza in people two weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for no more than two days. Influenza is a respiratory infection caused by influenza viruses of the family Orthomyxoviridae. It can be distinguished from the common cold (which is also caused by viruses) because it generally results in a more severe illness, with a sudden onset of headache, chills and cough followed rapidly by a fever, appetite loss, muscle aches, and tiredness.

How Tamiflu Works Against the Flu Virus

Tamiflu Suspension contains Oseltamivir, an antiviral drug that can help prevent the flu if you have recently been in close contact with a person that has the flu, or to reduce the time you will have symptoms of the flu if you start taking Tamiflu Suspension within 2 days of the first signs. When taken as prescribed, Oseltamivir will work by inhibiting a certain enzyme essential to the virus so it is not able to multiply in your body.

Types of the Flu That Affects Humans

Influenza viruses cause the flu in humans and are divided into three types, designated A, B, and C. Influenza types A and B are responsible for epidemics of respiratory illness that occur almost every winter and are often associated with increased rates of hospitalization and death. Type C influenza usually causes less severe symptoms. Typical symptoms of the flu include a fever, cough, sore throat, headache, and a runny or stuffed up nose. Gastrointestinal symptoms usually indicate a different virus that causes symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Before Tamiflu Suspension is Prescribed

Before taking Tamiflu Suspension, tell your doctor if you have received a nasal flu vaccine within the past two weeks, or if you have kidney disease, heart disease, lung disease, or any other serious disease or health problem. Tamiflu Suspension may contain Sorbitol which can cause stomach upset and diarrhea in those with an intolerance to fructose

Tamiflu Suspension Precautions and Proper Use

Tamiflu Suspension works only against influenza types A and B; it does not prevent bacterial infections that may happen with the flu. Tamiflu Suspension is not a substitute for an annual flu shot so ask your doctor if you should have the shot as well.

Keep Tamiflu Suspension in refrigerator and out of children’s reach. Do not share meds with anyone that is not indicated on the Rx label. The number of times a day and the number of days that you take Tamiflu Suspension are different for the treatment and for prevention of the flu. Take Tamiflu Suspension exactly as your healthcare provider prescribes.
