Tamiflu 75mg 10 Capsules
Tamiflu can help keep you from getting the flu and make you feel better faster if you already have it. It’s a simple tablet that you take by mouth, but you can only get it with a prescription from a doctor. If you are weak, worried about getting the flu, and want to be ready, we recommend Tamiflu.
Since it works best to ease symptoms in the first 48 hours after they start, you should get treatment as soon as possible. Because of this, we only sell Tamiflu for future use. This means that if you are likely to get sick from the flu and have problems, you need to order it before you get sick.
Tamiflu can also keep you from getting sick if you take it within 48 hours of coming in contact with someone who has the flu. This makes it a good thing to keep at home just in case. My London Pharmacy Online Doctor lets you order 75mg Tamiflu tablets for later use, so you can be ready to protect yourself from the flu if you come into contact with the virus.
How is Tamiflu used?
Tamiflu is an antiviral drug used to treat the flu or keep it from happening (influenza).
Tamiflu can keep you from getting the flu and keep you from getting sick if you already have it. When you have the flu, Tamiflu can also help you feel better faster by relieving symptoms like body aches, headaches, stuffy or runny noses, and tiredness.
This is important during flu epidemics, when other infections like coronavirus are going around that can cause serious health problems, or if you have risk factors that make you more likely to get sick from the flu.
Tamiflu is not a replacement for the flu shot, so if you can, you should still get the shot. The flu vaccine will give you antibodies that will protect you from getting the flu. This is a safer and more effective way to avoid getting sick.
Tamiflu does not treat coronavirus or any other lung or breathing problems.
Some people who are at risk and could benefit from taking Tamiflu are:
Are over 65
Have weakened immune systems
Are pregnant, even up to two weeks after giving birth
If you have one of the following health problems:
Nerve, liver, kidney, lung, or heart diseases that last for a long time
Diabetes Asthma, if you need preventer inhalers
Can you buy Tamiflu without a prescription?
No. Tamiflu is a medicine that you can only get with a prescription, so you can’t buy it at a pharmacy without a prescription. If you want to take Tamiflu, you need to get permission from a doctor first.
You don’t need a prescription to order Tamiflu from My London Pharmacy Online Doctor because our doctors can write prescriptions for medicine online.
Is Tamiflu an antibacterial drug?
No. Tamiflu is a drug that fights viruses. The flu is caused by the influenza virus, and antiviral drugs like Tamiflu are the only way to treat it. Infections caused by bacteria are treated with antibiotics.
How much Tamiflu can you take?
Tamiflu comes in 5 different doses – 3mg, 30mg, 45mg, 60mg, and 75mg. The “dose” tells you how much oseltamivir phosphate, which is the active ingredient, is in the medicine.
We only sell Tamiflu 75mg at My London Pharmacy Online Doctor.
Can the NHS give you Tamiflu?
Yes. The NHS follows rules set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, so they do give out prescriptions for Tamiflu. However, they only do so if:
Flu type A or B is going around.
There are danger signs (listed above)
They show up less than 48 hours after you start to feel sick.
Most of the time, the NHS won’t give you Tamiflu if you don’t have flu symptoms, so you might not be able to get it to protect yourself from getting sick in the future. This flu season, the coronavirus is putting more pressure on the NHS, so My London Pharmacy Online Doctor is offering Tamiflu for future use. This is to try to lighten the load on the NHS.
How does Tamiflu work?
Tamiflu works by stopping the flu virus from multiplying and spreading through your body. This keeps you from getting as sick as you would without it and, in some cases, keeps you from getting sick at all.
When you get the flu, the virus gets into your body and starts to grow and spread, which makes you sick. Your immune system will eventually fight off the infection. This usually takes between 5 and 7 days, and then you’ll start to feel better.
The active ingredient in Tamiflu is oseltamivir phosphate, which works by stopping the enzyme neuraminidase from doing its job. The flu virus needs this enzyme, which is a key chemical, to grow and spread in your body. By stopping this enzyme from working, the flu can’t grow. This makes the flu symptoms less severe and makes it harder to get the flu in the first place.
How well does Tamiflu work?
Studies show that Tamiflu can help more than 60% of people get better faster than if they didn’t take it. This can be up to 1-2 days faster in some cases.
When you have the flu, you are more likely to get sick from something else. This is because your immune system is weaker when you have the flu and are trying to fight it off. Different viruses cause the flu and coronavirus, so you can have both at the same time. There isn’t much information about what happens when you get both, but it seems likely that your immune system would have a hard time fighting off both infections at the same time. This could make the symptoms worse, make it take longer to get better, and make you more likely to get another infection.
Tamiflu: How to Take It
How you take Tamiflu depends on whether you already have flu symptoms or if you’ve been around someone with the flu and want to avoid getting it. If you’re taking it to prevent the flu, it also matters if there’s a pandemic of flu right now:
Take one capsule twice a day for 5 days in a row to treat flu symptoms (10 if your immune system is weakened)
Take one capsule once a day for 10 days to avoid getting the flu.
Taking a Tamiflu capsule:
Read the information sheet that came with your medicine.
Take your whole pill with water.
Some people get sick after taking Tamiflu. Taking your capsule after a meal may help with this.
How to use Tamiflu
When it comes to treating the flu, Tamiflu works best if you start taking it within the first 48 hours of feeling sick.
Flu prevention: Tamiflu works best to keep you from getting the flu if you take it within 48 hours of coming in contact with someone who has it.
How to handle missing a dose
If you forget to take a dose of Tamiflu:
If your next dose is due in less than 2 hours, skip the missed dose and take your next dose when you’re supposed to.
If your next dose is more than two hours away, take the dose you missed and go on as usual.
Don’t take two doses at once to make up for one that you missed.
If you start feeling sick less than 30 minutes after taking your dose, you should take another dose.
If you miss doses of Tamiflu, your treatment will be less effective. Set an alarm or use a pillbox if you have trouble remembering.
