TOKYO — Two teenage boys who took the antiviral drug Tamiflu exhibited abnormal behavior that led to their deaths, with one jumping in front of an oncoming truck last year and the other falling from the ninth floor of a building earlier this year, health ministry and other sources said Saturday.

The drug in Japan carries a note listing impaired consciousness, abnormal behaviors, hallucination and other psychological and neurological symptoms as possible serious side effects.


Not that I was considering this drug anyway, but this kind of thing should be very worrying for anyone who wants to take it. People cannot sue for vaccines. Does that hold true for Rumsfeld's favorite drug as well?




Are there anymore cases other than these "2"? This isn't too convincing. Most drugs have warnings of these side effects. We have two cases out of millions of people who are using it. How can we say that it is dangerous at this point. How do we know that these kids weren't engaging in other drugs or alcohol? It doesn't say.

NOTE:

As stated, these possible side effects are serious. As Tamiflu is fairly ineffective with H5N1 bird flu and so, requires about 10 times the normal dose - I'd recommend looking at alternatives.

You're right. We don't know.

I didn't intend to present this as proof the drug is dangerous. My intention was to shine a light on something we haven't been privy to here in the states. The 'note' soficrow pointed out is not available to US customers. Not even on the Tamiflu website

And I found an interesting thing on the Tamiflu website. Linking to the website is strictly prohibited in their Legal Statement without written permission. So I wont. But the url is self explanatory. I suggest you all read their Legal Statement and notice on the front page in all caps that this information is intended for US audiences only. Although that's a normal statement, I find it interesting that it's in all caps on the front page.

Maybe I'm just suspicious. (Yeah?) But I wonder what the site intended for the Japan audience looks like...

So I did a quick search.


Voice of America: "Japan's health ministry says it plans to reissue a warning of dangerous behavioral side effects linked to the anti-influenza drug Tamiflu. This comes amid reports that several children in Japan died after taking the medication."

Chosun: VOA Asia


PharmaTimes:
"According to PharmaTimes, Japan's Ministry of Health may issue another warning of behavioural side effects linked with Tamiflu (oseltamivir), after reports of cases of sudden death amongst children given the drug, and says it has identified 64 cases of psychological disorders linked to oseltamivir since its approval four years ago.

Chugai, which distributes oseltamivir in the Japan, says it has reported two deaths to the Ministry - which in turn has concluded that one death was treatment-related. In Japan, oseltamivir is already stamped with a warning of abnormal behaviour and hallucinations, which is not on the labelling in other markets."


Japan Times:
"In Japan the drug carries a warning of possible impaired consciousness, abnormal behavior, hallucinations, and other psychological and neurological symptoms. ...The Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency said there were 64 cases of psychological disorders linked to the drug between fiscal 2000 and 2004."

Rummy. I don't know the major stockholders. That might be interesting.

Great stuff, soficrow! And here's a fun page:

Here's another Monsanto connection: Donald Rumsfield.
Rumsfeld Lobbied FDA Approval of Toxic Aspartame (continued)

by RM NEWS

A hard-right Republican who served four terms in Congress (1962-69),Rumsfeld voted against food stamps, Medicare and anti-poverty funds. Rumsfeld'spolitical ideology encompasses the stockpiling of chemical weapons,downsizing the Federal government, and eliminating funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."

And this:

"James Turner, the anti-aspartame advocate alleges that Searle hired Rumsfeld to handle the aspartame approval difficulties as a "legal problem rather than a scientific problem."

And this:

"On September 30, 1980, the PBOI voted unanimously to reject the use of aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) until additional studies on aspartame's potential to cause brain tumors could be done. On January 21, 1981, the day after Ronald Reagan was inaugurated as President of the United States, Searle

Pharmaceuticals reapplied to the FDA for aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) approval.

A former G.D. Searle salesperson, Patty Wood-Allott, revealed that Donald Rumsfeld, president of Searle, told his sales force that, if necessary, "he would call in all his markers and that no matter what, he would see to it that aspartame would be approved that year." (mgold, Gordon, US Senate Record)


And so much more...
