Details

Tamiflu 75mg capsules (oseltamivir)

Medical information
Flu, or influenza, is caused by influenza virus. It is often difficult to differentiate which virus is causing the illness. Influenza A and B viruses cause most cases of flu in the UK and there is usually a seasonal outbreak of flu during winter. It can be passed on form person to person through droplets in the air when someone infected sneezes or coughs. You may also catch it by touching on surfaces where virus grows.

Symptoms
Common flu symptoms include

  • High temperature (fever).
  • Sweats.
  • Aches and pains in muscles and joints.
  • A dry cough.
  • Sore throat.
  • Sneezing.
  • Headache.
  • Feeling sick (nausea).

Symptoms are typically worse for the first few days and gradually improves over several days. Most healthy people recover within 2-7 days.



Treatment


Flu usually resolves on its own as our body has immune system that helps fight off the infections. Infected person should stay at home as much as possible to avoid passing on the infection. Painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can help to reduce temperature and ease pain. You should also drink plenty of fluids to replenish lost fluids in your body.


Antiviral medicines such as Tamiflu can help to interfere with virus growth to help prevent any complication of flu and to promote quicker recovery. The sooner Tamiflu is taken (within 48 hours of getting flu), the more effective it will be.

Tamiflu is available from Medicinesbymailbox. Specific information of the medicine can be found here.
