FDA Answers Common Questions about Tamiflu
The FDA has published a web page titled "Tamiflu: Consumer Questions and Answers." Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is an antiviral drug. It works by attacking the flu virus to keep it from multiplying in your body and by reducing the symptoms of the flu. Tamiflu is typically used to treat patients who have had flu symptoms for less than 2 days. If you are exposed to someone with the flu, Tamiflu can sometimes keep you from getting the flu, but only if you take it before you get sick.
