Yeah, Tamiflu cost is insane. I had the flu last year and it was hard to get over. Take extra good care of yourself and hopefully you will stay healthy.

Nobody with less than holy god horrible flu should getting taking medicine for it. Tamiflu shortens the duration of flu symptoms by less than a day. If you can't bear less than 24 hours more of relatively mild illness, you're a wuss.

I have to agree with "what." Tamiflu is the wimp's serum. I understand that there are plenty of killer flus out there, but not every flu needs a $112 intervention. We've become a species that can't tolerate even the slightest inconvenience of illness.

First off I've delt with worse then the. So I am far from a wuss. Its sad that people want to come on here and insult others who are just talking. Second. I spoke to the dr and pharmacist. Tamiflu actuallycuts symptoms from ten or more days down to four or five. As long as you take it within 48hours of getting sick. And that is something to me. Honestly why is you feel you need to pick on others for amusement?. We are grown here. At least some of us [email protected] Thanks for. The kind words and for being an adult

To all you people calling her a wuss. First of all, if you read her post, it was her husband, not her, with the flu. Also Tamiflu is not a waste if you want to cut your symptoms by days. For some people, that means getting back to work sooner. If you're a parent, getting better faster to take care of your family by receiving Tamiflu is not being a wuss. If some of you don't want to take it, why do you care if someone does?
