Is it ok to take store brand NyQuil, when taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir)?

TheFluWon'tFlyAway: Yes, it's OK. Just take as directed (well, a little more NyQuil won't kill you if you think you need it). Tamiflu (oseltamivir) works on the virus.

If you have been diagnosed with the flu and quickly take Tamiflu (within 24 hours) does your body still produce an immunity?

If you have been diagnosed with the flu and quickly take Tamiflu (within 24 hours) does your body still produce an immunity?
