I seem to have caught a flu. They generally lead to exacerbated symptoms for a month, for me. This time I actually managed to get some Tamiflu within the 48 hour window. I have never tried it before. I thought it might be a great chance to skip a month of being extra-sick. But, like a fool, I took the first capsule before thinking to come here and ask you folks' experiences with the stuff. Maybe it's not too late! I did a search, and found one person who had a general, though short lessening of all symptoms -- and another who had a reactivation of EBV for 4 months . That's a pretty small sample set, though, two people. Have any of you reading this tried Tamiflu? Would you? Why or why not? Thank you for your help .
