Question Tamiflu

I got a flu shot sometime in October for the very first time. I am 22 and had flu like symptoms (fatigue mostly) sometime in November up until now. Was in my doctors office yesterday and he prescribed Tamiflu and I have been having chills and actually vomitted this morning. I am taking an 8 hr Tylenol about two hours after I take Tamiflu and have been sweating a lot. My temp has been fluctuant. When I took Tamiflu it was as high as 102.7 and with Tylenol it comes down to 98 degrees. Is that normal? I also found out from my doctor I have this ear and throat infection.

Please help thanks,
Marie

Sounds like you have more than just the flu virus. Tamiflu does not help with fever like Tylenol, but actually helps lessen flu symptoms & perhaps make your stint with the flu shorter if you took it as the flu started. Good luck!

Thank you for the response. My fever has gone down, thank god! I got scared there for a good 3 days. A normal 97-98ish degrees and no more >100+. I guess all the bed resting and fluids are helping me. Now what I look on forward to is a successful surgery by the end of this month! Will keep you updated.
