So I just got back from the ER where my Son was just diagnosed per nose swab with the H1N1 virus. It came on all of a sudden with NO warning and he woke up around 3am with a fever of 101.1 and vomiting. Today he's had the body aches, chills, sore throat and stuffy nose. I took him in asap before he got any worse. They gave me Tamiflu (sp?) and said lots of rest and lots of fluids. He can return to school and activities 24 hrs after the fever breaks and based upon how he feels. So my question is....has your child been DIAGNOSED with it and have they been given Tamiflu? Also I have 2 other little ones and they said to get Tamiflu for them as a precaution.Answer Question

My doctor wouldn't give us Tamiflu... which I guess is ok. Since none of my kids have asthma I guess they didn't care. We took my 9 yr old in last week on Tues because her fever was still very high after 2 days and she was so dizzy that her bed was spinning she said. They said just to ride it out. She started feeling better yesterday...three days after her fever broke. She may try school tomorrow. My 11 yr old was not as bad and neither was my 7 yr old. My 15 yr old had it in Sept and they didn't give her anything either. I was a little pissed because the NP told us when I took my 9 yr old in that Tamiflu can have bad side effects and if we end up stopping it because of that then they just wasted a dose that could have been used on a asthmatic kid. I get her point, but did she have to say it like that?
