Cochrane review questions benefit of Tamiflu


I'm with Tiger Girl on this: I had very nasty flu when I was younger, and you can be really ill - NOTHING LIKE 'a bad cold'. There was once a campaign on TV, telling people 'to not visit their GP if they only had a cold - only go to the GP if you've got the flu' and I used to feel like throwing something at the TV (when I had the flu, there was no way I could have gone anywhere on my own two feet !). So taking a relatively ineffective medicine that ALSO had side-effects that make you feel even more awful, seems very flawed.
