My hubby is very Ill w/the flu & was in the hospital but been staying @ familys the past couple days to limit contact w/our 14mo old son & myself ( Im 5mos prego w/heart problems ). When he was seen in E.R they prescribed Tamiflu to me & my son as a precautionary measure b/c we are high risk, mine was denied but my son was approved & just yesterday started taking it @ 2ml once daily. He has been fine other than a little hack & slightly runny nose. Last night he awoke w/a fever of 102.5 & it wouldnt break, I called the E.R & he went in..they said it was viral & prescribed the Tamiflu again but twice daily now 4ml to treat rather than prevent flu. Im a wreck. Its difficult to get any answers &Im worried. IS Tamiflu generally safe? Is it safe if it turned out it wasnt a flu? the docs said there is a difference in doses, one is to prevent one is to treat, what if he didnt have the flu like his father is it okay? Thanks everyone.Answer Question
