Don't know if this is the right place to ask...but here it goes!
If I fear any of my family are infected I plan to use tamiflu and amantadine. This is based on info I read years ago about H5N1...today I have no idea If amantadine is still usefull and what doses?
If anyone can explain this to me...Thanks!

Amantadine is not useful because the virus is resistant to this drug. We are hoping that Tamiflu will continue to work. If I were you I would use the Tamiflu first and if still sick go for the Amantadine. Go to the web sites for Tamiflu and Amantadine and it will give you the dose.

If I am wrong some of you medical people need to say different. If it was my child or family member that is what I would do.

Mary08, where have you found Chinese Star Anise? I did not find any at my local grocery stores, and I heard most grocery stores carried it. Maybe the health food store has it, but I'm not sure. I have been looking for some.

I can't remember which forum I read about where to purchase Tamiflu (from reputable source). Can someone point me to the correct formum? Is this an over-the-counter drug in Canada?

Is there any info on oscillococcinum (natural homeopathic remedy for colds)? This is easily obtainable. What other antivirals are available (Relenza, etc) that people on this forum would recommend?
thanks

As we know, some medications such as tamiflu has been proven to be effective in fighting the recent H1S1(swine flu).  However, it has not been most effective in combating some other types of flu.    Some good news: Researchers recently identified human antibodies that seem to neutralize some flu viruses, including the bird flu strain -- a finding that could lead to more-effective treatments.

The vast majority of people that die of the flu did not get the vaccine. Of the Peds deaths the vast majority had NOT been vaacinated. In Florida only 17.8% of the entire population received the flu shot this past year. THERE is the issue. NOT the drug
