Tamiflu is most effective if it is administered within 48 hours of flu symptoms starting. If your child is at day four of five of the flu and is generally healthy, it may not be worth it to start taking Tamiflu at that point.

Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu in people 1 year of age and older. In a study of children 1-12 years old, Tamiflu helped children get better up to 1.5 days (26%) faster compared with children who didn’t take Tamiflu within 48 hours of first symptoms.

Tamiflu is prescribed in liquid or capsule form, and it may be taken with or without food. Children may tolerate it better by taking it with a sweet, thick liquid such as chocolate syrup, which will mask its strong flavor. -- Pour a small amount, about 1 to 2 teaspoons, of sweetened liquid into a cup or bowl.

Yes, you can: The prophylactic Tamiflu (oseltamivir) you were prescribed will more than likely protect you from the particular strain your daughter was infected with, but it will not protect you from other circulating strains you may encounter after your 10 day period has completed.

When my 18 month old had a 104 .9 fever I nearly freaked out...but it came down with alternating tylenol and motrin every 4 hours. BTW it takes 60-90 minutes for the medicine to fully kick in. I can't really speak to the Tamiflu medication since no one in the house has ever used it.

Tamiflu for low-risk children who just started flu symptoms. If your child is over the age of 5 and generally healthy, he or she may or may not benefit from using Tamiflu. If your child does take Tamiflu, it's important that it’s administered to children as soon as symptoms begin.

Most doctors will prescribe an influenza antiviral, like Tamiflu and Relenza (both approved for children), to a child presenting flu symptoms. These medications are most effective when taken within one or two days after symptoms start, so it’s best to get your child to a doctor right away.
