Yes. very much it has side effects. Anyway do not get it in shops these days.Just in case you find someone selling it, do let me know. do not take tamiflu unless needed and prescribed by a doctor. tamiFlu is an antiviral and using this will create immunity in the body towards other anti viral drugs in future.

Nothing will happen except the fact that next time anti virals might not give you much benefit.

Just got over flu symptoms after 3 days (fever, vomiting, weakness). I am now suffering from soreness directly under my jaw line- so swollen that it is sensitive to touch, and also visible. It hurts to open my mouth very wide, and my gums are very sore and bleed when I brush my teeth. What is this from, and is associated with the flu?
