For your awareness … …

Also fr today’s ST, “No Tamiflu for Teenageers, Japan Orders”:

>>> Japanese Dr were ordered not to prescribe Tamiflu to teenagers after several patients reportedly exhibited dangerous behaviour (such as jumping off their houses/buildings).

>>> Roche (the manufacturer) found “no established causal link between neuropsychiatric symptoms and treatment with Tamiflu”.

At the Forum page:

From Deputy Dir of Health Products Regulation Group, Health Science Authority,

>>> Tamiflu contains anti-viral drug oseltamivir. WHO recommended tt oseltamivir be used for treatment of avian influenza caused by the H5N1 virus, in view of the serious public-health threat and limited treatment options.

>>> HSA will monitor the overseas situation closely and take action to safeguard the public health when warranted. Should patients taking oseltamivir experience any untoward reaction to the drug, they shd consult their doctor immediately.
