Tamiflu

Form.

Tablets: 75 milligrams.

No Prescription

Tamiflu is prescribed for the treatment of uncomplicated influenza infection in adults who have had symptoms for no longer than two days.
Tamiflu is prescribed for prevention of influenza in children (one year and older) and adults.

Tamiflu speeds recovery from the flu. When started during the first 2 days of the illness, it hastens improvement by at least a day. It also can prevent the flu if treatment is started within 2 days after exposure to a flu victim. Tamiflu is one of a new class of antiviral drugs called neuraminidase inhibitors.

As the flu virus takes hold in the body, it forms new copies of itself and spreads from cell to cell. Neuraminidase inhibitors fight the virus by preventing the release of new copies from infected cells. The other drug in this class, Relenza, is taken by inhalation. Tamiflu is taken in liquid or capsule form.

Dosage.

Tamiflu is administered orally. The recommended dose is one tablet twice daily for five days. For the best results, treatment should begin as soon as symptoms develop.

ADULTS AND CHILDREN 13 AND OLDER

Treatment of Influenza

The usual dosage is 75 mg taken twice daily (morning and evening) for 5 days. If you have kidney disease, take a 75-mg dose once a day.

If there is a general outbreak of the flu in your community, your doctor may recommend that you continue taking this medication for up to 6 weeks.
