Tamiflu - An Overview

Tamiflu is an antiviral medication indicated for the treatment of influenza in certain patients. Through Push Health, one can request a Tamiflu prescription online and get Tamiflu medication, including generic Tamiflu 75 mg capsules, when appropriate to do so.

How Does Tamiflu Work?

What is Tamiflu and how does Tamiflu work? Tamiflu prescription medication belongs to a class of medications known as influenza neuraminidase inhibitors. Tamiflu is thought to attack the influenza virus that causes the flu as opposed to just masking symptoms. The main Tamiflu ingredient is oseltamivir, an antiviral medication. Tamiflu medication is indicated for the treatment of influenza in patients 1 year and older who have been symptomatic for no more than 2 days and for prophylaxis of influenza in patients 1 year and older which is slightly different than the indications for Xofluza. The efficacy of Tamiflu prescription capsules in people who begin therapy after 48 hours of symptoms is not known.

Tamiflu - Dosing & Effectiveness

Tamiflu capsules are available in 30mg, 45mg and 75mg doses. Tamiflu capsules are hard gelatin capsules that are light yellow or grey in color. Tamiflu, when used in the treatment of influenza, is often prescribed as a twice daily medication for a period of 5 days but the regimen depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Patients who are renally impaired may require Tamiflu dosing adjustments. Tamiflu medication is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract after oral administration and is converted in by esterases in the liver to metabolites.

Tamiflu - Cost & Coupon

Tamiflu's cost is roughly $5 per Tamiflu 75 mg capsule at many pharmacies but the price of Tamiflu will vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Tamiflu coupons are available at times from the manufacturer or other sources. Some insurance plans may also cover the cost of a Tamiflu prescription when indicated and part of the insurance plan coverage. A generic Tamiflu was approved by the FDA in 2016.

Can I Buy Tamiflu Online?

Tamiflu is a prescription medication and, as such, one cannot simply buy Tamiflu online in the United States. Additionally, Tamiflu OTC (over the counter) is not available from pharmacies. Instead, one needs a prescription from a licensed medical provider before it can be dispensed by a pharmacy. Push Health can connect people who think they need a Tamiflu prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Tamiflu pills, including generic Tamiflu 75 mg medication, when appropriate to do so.

Is Tamiflu an Antibiotic?

Many people wonder if Tamiflu is a type of antibiotic medication. The answer is no. Tamiflu is an antiviral medication which works against viruses.

Tamiflu - Side Effects

Common side effects of Tamiflu prescription medication use include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea. Another described side effect of Tamiflu is increased confusion or abnormal behavior, particularly in pediatric patients. Anyone with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to Tamiflu should not use it. It is not recommended to drink alcohol while taking Tamiflu medication. There is no evidence that Tamiflu has any efficacy on anything except influenza viruses types A and B and Tamiflu should not be considered a substitute for the influenza vaccination. Because influenza virus patterns change over time, current information needs to be considered when using Tamiflu prescription capsules.
