  • Did you have the flu shot? Just asking because that can make a difference too. DD had a flu shot but got the flu anyway a few months later. She started to feel better a day or two after the beginning the tamiflu.

  • He probably will. My oldest had the flu back in October. It only took a day or two for him to feel better but it took about a week for him to be his old self again.

  • tamiflu shortens the length of the flu by 2 days and has tons of side effects which last beyond that and it has no correlation with outcome
