Uses of Tamiflu / Oseltamivir Phosphate
Treat symptoms caused by the flu virus
It helps make the flu symptoms (such as a stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, fever/chills, aches, tiredness) less severe and shortens the recovery time by 1-2 days. This medication is also used to prevent the flu if you have been exposed to someone who already has the flu (such as a sick household member) or if there is a flu outbreak in the community. This medication works by stopping the flu virus from growing. It is not a substitute for the flu vaccine.

Tamiflu is effective against all strains of Influenza A and B (including the avian H5N1, swine-origin H1N1 and H9N2 strains). Oseltamivir when administered early, significantly reduces the amount of virus shed, duration of viral shedding and the duration of symptoms. Neuraminidase inhibitors can decrease the duration and severity of influenza-related symptoms if started within 2 days of first showing symptoms.
