In brief: At symptom start
Tamiflu is for treating people 1 year and older with influenza (flu) whose symptoms started within the last two days.
Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu. Tamiflu is not a substitute for an annual flu vaccination. It is also called oseltamivir, and is a type of anti-viral. Dose is usually 75mg twice a day for 5 days. It should be started at the start of symptoms.
