My concern though is:
1. Tamiflu hasn't shown to be very effective so why risk it?
2. Swine Flu hasn't shown to be very strong so why risk it?
3. Swine Flu is not the deadliest in babies or elderly. It is deadliest in people with healthy immune systems, or underlying conditions. So again, why risk Tamiflu on a 3 yr old.

Ok, my 3 year old son has Swine Flu. Now, he is taking Tamiflu, but he seemingly doesn't want to. We think it may be due to the taste, but I have seen a lot of people on here say bad things.
I'm showing signs of the illness too, and I'm a veru concerned parent. I haven't started this thread to start a fight or make a point. All I want to know is the facts. Why is this product bad. Frankly, I don't care what your opinions are, although feel free to add them.
Please can I just get some clear advice about this stuff so I can try to understand the risks and why my son may not want to be taking it. He is having it in food (strawberry youghut after the cap is broken and mixed in with it) so we know he likes the food it's in. I'm not saying I will agree with your advice and suddenly stop, but if I know what kind of reaction I'm looking for I might be able to act.

Tamiflu as stated and reported is not that affective,,,,,,,,
To understand why Tamiflu does not work is to understand the DNA / RNA structure of the virus. But this virus has mutated constantly since it first hit the world scene.........Tamiflu is for the human strains only.......these two strain only make up 2 parts out of 4 of the virus........The virus is attacking each host differently with one of the strains being more dominate like the avian aspect..........Tamiflu will not fight against the avian characteristics of the virus........The swine flu thread discussed all of this back in May........Sorry most of the members contributing this information no longer post here on ATS.........I just lurk around a little and caught your thread........
