Due to the high levels of influenza this year, we have Tamiflu in stock to reduce the severity and duration of the flu symptoms. Tamiflu is an antiviral medicine and is effective if given within 48 hours with the onset of the flu.
Symptoms and Signs
Influenza usually begins with a sudden onset of fever and at least two or three of the following symptoms:
- aches and pains
- cough or noisy breathing
- sore throat and runny nose
- low energy
- nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhoea.
The best way to prevent influenza is the influenza vaccine given early to mid of every year.
Good hygiene habits can also reduce the chance of getting influenza or passing it to others. These include:
- regular hand washing
- not sharing cups or cutlery
- covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
