Grandmother has influenza a. On tamiflu (oseltamivir) and tessalon pearls. Nauseated and threw up orange/yellow mucous. Is this normal? Should we worry?

Mabye. It depends. If she is otherwise in good health, she should do well . If she has a high fever, feels weak or short of breath or can't keep down liquids then she could get into trouble quickly. You should give an update to her provider that gave her the tamiflu, (oseltamivir) if you are concerned.

I have no immune system, family has influenza A. I haven't had "direct" contact with them. Wondering should I talk to dr about tamiflu (oseltamivir)? Or am I ok?

How to survive... How does a person with "no immune system" survive the flu? If the patient has no answer to that, then it is time for her to call the doctor and get a prescription for prophylactic medication. Of course, if the people around such a patient all have Flu A, the patient might consider leaving for about 10 days... but that means finding a safe Flu-free place to go hide out at. Read more...

Tested positive for influenza a today. Started on tamiflu (oseltamivir). When will I feel better? Pretty much miserable!

Tamiflu (oseltamivir) This antiviral does not cure influenza like we think antibiotics will cure a skin infection.what it does is shorten the duration of the flu by inhibiting the flu virus from replicating itself. Thus instead of lasting 7-10 days symptoms may only last 4-7 days. It does help prevent influenza in those exposed to the virus that are not symptomatic yet or give them a very limited disease.

My daughter was positive for influenza A. Placed on tamiflu (oseltamivir) and is fever free rest of us on tamiflu (oseltamivir) can we still get influenza?

Yes, you can. The prophylactic Tamiflu (oseltamivir) you were prescribed will more than likely protect you from the particular strain your daughter was infected with, but it will not protect you from other circulating strains you may encounter after your 10 day period has completed. It will still be important to practice self protection through good handwashing and maintaining overall health. Best wishes! Read more...
Certainly. She was contageous before diagnosis and she remains so during treatment. All who are around her may have enough exposure to get it if they are not immune to that strain from a flu shot. The drug would likely decrease the intensity of any symptoms a contact would have. This drug suppresses the reproduction of the virus it does not kill it, so it does not work like penicillin for a strep throat. Read more...

Yes. It sounds as if you and your doctor have everything under control. Continue supportive care with fluids, rest, and mom's love while his body fights the flu with the help of tamiflu (oseltamivir). A fever can make a person fell terrible, but it is even tougher on the virus. That's why our bodies use fever to help fight infections like flu.
