Willow41,

I read somewhere (not on the Tamiflu website) that for the Bird Flu, not the regular flu, you needed to take Tamiflu for ten days, not five as listed.  I wish I could recall and attach the link.  Maybe someone else has it? 

Hope

yes, I have also read throught the news that they are recommending you double the dosage of tamilflu. but, that was in the beginning of Feb.  I don't know where the health officials stand on that now.

Maybe most of those 36,000 didn't have Tamiflu. 

Maybe they had other health problems so it didn't help.

Maybe...............

People die of flu in this country because they already have compromised immune systems. Tamiflu is not a vaccine but a drug used to limit the time one sick.

I think what is important to realize is that Tamiflu does not prevent flu.  It only shortens the duration of symptoms.  Because there is no documented transmission of person to person spread of avian flu, we really don't know how it would work once someone actually contracted the disease. If it could prevent the flu, you would need enough to take for the entire duration of an outbreak.  So, in a six week outbreak, at a normal dose, you would have to have 84 pills per person.  Not feasible.

Honestly I would take my chance with some tamiflu rather than a vaccine. Any mutation and the vaccine does not work - tamiflu works by inhibiting the enzyme needed to replicate - thus why it works on mutiple flus.
However, tamiflu can NOT WORK if the virus adapts.
 
I have not yet - but working hard to aquire.
 
Anyone having luck getting any this late in the game?
 
local pharmacies say they have some left - getting a script
is another story.
 
Ideas? Suggestions? Cash I have - tamiflu I dont.

I am a UK pharmacist and I can obtain Tamiflu again from one of my suppliers.  It was out of stock for months but I ordered a pack yesterday just to see and it came in!

So if any of you really want some - time to find a friendly doctor.  They can issue a private script in the UK - you pay the price of the meds to the Pharmacist - about Ł25 for 10 capsules.
You have no chance of getting an NHS script as all NHS prescribing is monitored but the private stuff is not.
 
 
Pharmacists cannot supply this without a UK prescription so don't even ask! Nor can it be shipped it abroad as you need an export license to send meds abroad.

Hi,
 
Over the past few years, most people who died after having the flu, did not die from the flu virus.  They died from the post flu pneumonia.  Their immune systems are weakened after being so sick and an opportunistic bug sets up shop and they get pneumonia. 
 
If you have the regular flu - stay home and stay in bed.  Don't be a hero and run to the market -- that's where you get exposed to the pathogen that causes pneumonia -- usually a bacteria called streptococcus pneumoniae.  Community acquired pneumonia is normally treated with antibiotics like azithromycin (zpack).
 
Now Avaian Influenza is different kettle of fish.  It's high mortality rate is due to the fact that the vius sets up shop in the lungs (where regular flu receptor's are in the throat.)  This virus can cause it's own pneumonia (viral pneumonia) and antibiotics won't work.  Your only hope is an antiviral like tamiflu.
 
I hope it helps,
K.

Heres a great link to a website that stocks and sells tamiflu for roughly ÂŁ10 for a years protection

www.fightflunow.com

its an anti-viral medication that one should take on the first offset of sympotms, as many say it is not a vaccine, as is there is no vaccine for the strain becuase it mutates too quickly
it inhibits the virus from replicating
which is worth it considering it can cause death

hope this helps

I have no idea if tamiflu would even work on whatevr happened to come along.... but not to be left out... I decided to MAKE my own.  Now stop yer laughin :)
 
I just bashed some Whole Chinese Star Anise (if it's whole you know it's real) in a morter and then I put it in a small bottle of vodka.... vintage 2006
 
I put a tiny bit in a cup of tea.... it is Very...strong. about 1/8 teasoopn is all I used in a cup of tea.  Don't give it to a child without asking your doctor, of course I suggest asking a doctor before taking anything because some drugs interact, be safe.
 
 
other people wanted to try to make it.  (below) Ask a drugist also as they are aware of drug interactions or what they term, contraindications.   :)
