Viral Fever

now headache,coughing is going on our body ## Have you seen a doctor? Do you know what type of virus it is? Many of them are left to run their course, since they will usually end naturally, but sometimes antiviral medications are required or other medications that can treat the symptoms, such as the coughing.

Squailing

Its a drug given for swine flu ## To be honest, since the word you used is so close to squealing, I believe someone was pulling your leg. It is an old joke, trying to make a pun on unusual medication names. In the U.S. there are 2 drugs that are used for swine flu, there are Tamiflu and Relenza. Are there any questions or comments? ## Thanks cause I heard its a drug that their going to give people as a vaccine for the swine flu.

Flu medication put out by Roche ## I have heard that Thermaflu is the best medication for children in fighting Swine Flu. I have three grandchildren in Lima, Peru and would like to learn more about Thermaflu so I can send a supply to them, if warranted. Plse reply. Thanks ## Are you possibly referring to TheraFlu? If so, this is an over the counter remedy and not proven to prevent anything, including swine flu. ## The name of the medicine should be TAMIFLU, it treats flu,and sells under prescription of doctor. Must be taken within 12 to 48 hours from the first appearance of flu symptoms. More drug details: Manufacturer's site: www.tamiflu.com

Virologists stockpile Tamiflu

it won't take long until the worldwide stocks are exhausted. Virologists have predicted that the hybridisation of bird flu virus and human influenza will take place soon. Nobody know when, but that it will happen is for sure. The most important virologists in the world stockpiled Tamiflu a long time back and so should we.
