View Full Version : Age range for giving Tamiflu

10-23-2005, 02:03 AM
I have been watching information (searching) all over the net related to the medication of ‘Tamiflu’. I am totally helpless in finding out the information like what is the age range under which its medication should be started also I’m not able to find any such site that could help me over my problem, my daughter 2 yrs old is suffering from influenza flu; I want to know that “Can I give Tamiflu to my child under 2 yrs of age?” I am not able to think and find the right solution.

Please help me out.

Hello Moyes,
Yes your problem is genuine to be asked…lemme try to answer the question:o
As per my knowledge Tamiflu is indicated for the treatment of influenza in patients of 1yr and older but the medication should be started within two days of getting any symptoms. In addition you may visit/surf visit some sites like
www.fda.gov/cder/drug/infopage/tamiflu/default.htm (http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/infopage/tamiflu/default.htm) ,
http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s3353-s-TAMIFLU.aspx (http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s3353-s-TAMIFLU.aspx)
I find these sites acquainted with a lot of information on Tamiflu.
Hoping you will find my idea working.
