Does Tamiflu Really Work?

Tamiflu is an over-the-counter product that is being used as a treatment for flu both in adults and in children (12 months and above). It claims to be an effective preventive measure against flu if taken daily within the span of ten days. Also known by its trade name oseltamivir phosphate, this antiviral flu medication promises to reduce the symptoms of Type A and B flu strains. Tamiflu is said to work by serving as a neuraminidase inhibitor that stops the creation of infected cells from creating new viruses. Available in 75 mg capsules for adults and 12 mg/ml oral suspension in tutti-frutti flavour for kids, this medicine is not available in a generic version. The usual dosage of Tamiflu for adults is twice a day for five days while dosage for children depends on their body weight.

My doctor prescribed Tamiflu for me when I was about 2-3 days into bad illness. Horrible aches and pains, really uncomfortable. Was feeling much better within another 2-3 days instead of 7-14 that flu usually lasts.
