Exposure to oseltamivir is less than 5% of total exposure after the dose administered orally.
Limitations of use:
Following information should be considered before the patients buy TAMIFLU online and initiate treatment or prophylaxis with it.
Efficacy of TAMIFLU has not been established in patients who start the treatment after 48 hours of onset of symptoms. TAMIFLU should not be treated as a substitute for early influenza vaccination on yearly basis as recommended by Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Advisory Committee. Influenza virus being a virus, changes over time. Therefore the viral virulence also changes which reduces the clinical efficiency of antiviral drugs. Patients should buy TAMIFLU after receiving latest information from their Doctors on drug susceptibility patterns and other treatment effects.
The simultaneous administration of TAMIFLU with live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) is not been evaluated. Nevertheless, the two products may interfere. Therefore, it is suggested unless medically indicated, that LAIV should not be administered within two weeks prior to administration of TAMIFLU. Similarly LAIV should not be administered within 48 hours after administration of TAMIFLU. Pharmacology and Pharmacokinetic studies of Oseltamivir have suggested that clinically significant drug interactions are unlikely.
