Has anyone given their toddler Tamiflu? It was prescribed for my son but I’m scared to give it to him. I’ve heard bad things.


— Oh no that's crazy! It was prescribed to my 15 mo old cause she had pneumonia as well! I had no idea and didn't do my research since i was stressing on the pneumonia part 😰

— It was prescribed for pneumonia? Did your baby have flu? Tamiflu is for the flu as far as I know. My son was prescribed antibiotics for the pneumonia.

— @downtherabbithole yes ! They told me "she had both "

— What kind of bad things?

— Nausea, vomiting, hallucinations etc.

— I didn’t end up using it. He’s no longer sick either. Just did Motrin for his fever and antibiotics for the pneumonia. Kept him hydrated.

— Nope I refuse to fill it he was only sick 5 days no puking

— No my son just got over the flu and I refused. My sons pediatrician even said he wouldn't give it to his child but he has to offer it

— I would never. My kids pediatrician told me that all tamiflu does is help shorten the length of time you have the flu. Nothing else. Tylenol/Motrin, rest, & liquids is just as good. If not, better. Tamiflu can also cause nausea along with it.

— He has flu and pneumonia. They started him on antibiotics for the pneumonia but I’m on the fence about giving him the Tamiflu. The dr said it’s up to me if I wanna give him that one.

— I didn't either I'm like u want me to put that in my lil dudes empty tummy no thanks I just let him ride it out and he got better in 2 days. It's your body's natural defense to fight a infection so why cover it up. The side effects scared me to much to consider it
