Tamiflu is a flu treatment that can stop the flu virus from spreading allowing those with flu symptoms to get better faster. It can also be used as a preventative treatment for people that have come into contact with people with flu symptoms to stop them from getting sick too. It is an antiviral medication that fights the virus that causes flu and in doing so allows the body to get rid of the initial infection faster.
You can buy Tamiflu online at euroClinix in one dose of 75mg in packs of 10,20,30,40 or 50.
Tamiflu is the most frequently prescribed anti-viral flu medicine in the EU and is most effective when taken within two days of the onset of symptoms. It works by helping to stop the flu virus from spreading inside your body, which will improve your recovery time and provide relief from the symptoms. This treatment can also prevent the onset of flu even if you have been exposed to someone who suffers from it. On average, this medication reduces the duration of symptoms by one and a half days. The treatment should be started within 48 hours of coming into contact with the infected individual.
Flu is commonly triggered by a highly contagious virus, which affects the lungs and respiratory system. The virus is caught by breathing in microscopic airborne droplets that are formed when an infected individual talks, sneezes or coughs. The virus can also live for a short time on surfaces, so it can be picked up if an individual touches an infected surface and then rubs their eyes or nose. When the virus first gets through into the body it attacks cells in the airways, where it duplicates to form lots of new harmful copies of the virus.
These new copies of the flu virus move from the first cells to infect neighbouring cells, where the process keeps on repeating itself. A couple of days after, enough cells have been infected that the patient feels flu symptoms such as fever, headache and overall aches and pains. These carry on for about one week until the body's immune system effectively kills off the virus.
Tamiflu's main ingredient oseltamivir inhibits the neuraminidase enzymes of the influenza virus. It's these enzymes that help the virus to enter uninfected cells and to spread within the body. By preventing the virus from spreading, your body is better able to fight the virus, bringing relief from the many uncomfortable symptoms of flu.
You should take Tamiflu as prescribed and take them at regular intervals. Even if you feel well you should take the whole course unless a doctor tells you not to. You should read the enclosed instructions before taking this medication for full instructions or download them at the bottom of this page. A guideline to taking Tamiflu is as follows:
These capsules can be taken either with or without food, although taking it with a meal may reduce the chance of feeling or being sick.
When taking Tamiflu, it is important to commence treatment as soon as possible after being exposed to the virus or experiencing flu symptoms, depending on your doctor's recommendations. The following guidelines apply:
Due to the way Tamiflu works, it is at its most effective if taken before the infection has had time to spread. Within 48 hours of experiencing symptoms, you still have enough time to fight off the infection, and stop it from spreading enough to make you very ill.
Similarly, if you come into contact with someone who has the flu and seek medical treatment immediately, you may be able to prevent it from spreading. If you are around people that have influenza, contact a doctor and give them all the information you can. It could be early enough to stop the onset of the virus.
After 48 hours of experiencing flu-like symptoms, if you have influenza, Tamiflu usage will not be effective. The reason for this is that the virus will have already infected too many cells in the body. Before experiencing symptoms, it could have already been actively infecting cells for almost two days. By the time you have had symptoms for 48 hours, your body may have been under attack for almost four days. Flu only has about a week before your immune system fights it off in full, so Tamiflu may no longer be useful in cutting down recovery time. You would be advised to use over-the-counter treatments to help you with the symptoms instead.
Tamiflu is suitable for both adults and children (one year and older), and should be taken within 2 days of you noticing the symptoms. It is also approved for emergency use in children less than one year old. The recommended dose of Tamiflu for treating adults is 75 mg twice daily for five days. Children should be treated with 30 to 75 mg twice daily, depending on their body weight.
In non-pandemic conditions, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) advises that Tamiflu should not be taken to treat or prevent common seasonal flu in healthy individuals. They advocate that it is only prescribed to patients who are at risk of forming complications from flu. These patients are those aged 65 and over, and those suffering with with chronic lung disease, e.g. asthma, long-term kidney, heart, liver or neurological disease.
