You wanted to know if your friend should be taking Tamiflu, because her husband has been diagnosed with influenza, and she's 36 weeks along. And the best advice I have for your friend is to call her doctor and ask them if they think she should be taking Tamiflu or any other antiviral medications. Based on their knowledge of her circumstances, they'll be able to give her the best advice. Generally speaking, the current recommendation is that women who are in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters should get a form of antiviral medication to help fight the flu if they are exposed to someone who has influenza. In the 1st trimester, though, this medication should not be given. These types of medications are in pregnancy category C. And that means, basically in this situation, that they haven't been proven to be safe during pregnancy, because, ethically, we can't study their effects on a pregnant woman and her baby. But they have been given to pregnant women, and we haven't seen any adverse effects for a woman or her baby that was exposed in utero during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. We do know that, in the 1st trimester, there can be problems. And if a pregnant woman gets the flu, it's more likely to be serious as the pregnancy progresses. So in the 3rd trimester, she's most at risk. In the 1st trimester, the baby is most at risk to getting medication. So again, that's why a woman in the 2nd or 3rd trimester should get medication, but not those that are in the 1st. So again, the doctor knows the most about her situation and will be able to give her the best advice. Really, the best way to prevent the spread of illness is good hand-washing. Encourage your friend to wash her hands frequently, and to have her husband wash his hands frequently, and to decontaminate commonly-touched surfaces in the home, and just keep her distance until he's all better. And if she's gotten a flu shot during her pregnancy (which pregnant women should get at any point in the pregnancy), that will also offer her protection. If you have more questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

Tamiflu for Kids Temporarily in Short Supply. Tamiflu, a typical pharmaceutical used to treat occasional influenza, is hard to come by in its oral suspension shape, which is utilized to treat kids experiencing seasonal influenza. The deficiency is brief, and it is because of an early interest for the medication in what is turning out to be an intense influenza season, as indicated by Roche Holding AG's Genentech unit which makes the medication. Reuters has more: "A concise deficiency of OS is normal through mid-January. We might be not able take care of finish orders from merchants temporarily," [Roche representative Tara] Iannuccillo included. Tamiflu is utilized to diminish the seriousness of this season's cold virus when taken at the beginning of manifestations. The oral suspension of the medication is essentially recommended for kids younger than 13 and for individuals who experience issues gulping. The deferral in bundling of the fluid form has not affected supplies of consistent Tamiflu 75 milligram containers, Genentech said. Influenza is spreading rapidly this season, with 25 states as of now revealing cases, as per the U.S. Places for Disease Control and Prevention. A huge number of individuals kick the bucket each year from influenza, which normally crests in the United States between the periods of October and March. This present season's infection has slaughtered six kids in the United States up until this point, as per CDC information. Roche said it hopes to have extra supply of Tamiflu OS accessible in mid-January. "We expect that these new supplies should take care of demand for OS in general and we will proceed to get and dispatch out new supplies of Tamiflu OS and containers all through this season's cold virus season," Iannuccillo said. On the off chance that the medication is inaccessible in a specific region amid the lack, drug specialists can blend the cases into an oral suspension for individuals who require it. In the interim, the CDC is prescribing that individuals keep on getting influenza shots to keep the infection.

Flu season is just around the corner and health experts are encouraging everyone to get vaccinated, including pregnant mothers. Dr. Melissa Lee, a gynecologist at Lee Memorial Health System, says no matter what stage of pregnancy it’s important to get a flu vaccine. “They are considered a higher risk category so we actually recommend every pregnant female get the flu vaccine.” The flu shot will protect both mother and baby throughout the entire pregnancy. “Not only does it protect the mom during pregnancy but it also transfers some immunity to the baby during pregnancy, and if you’re breast feeding, also after pregnancy,” said Dr. Lee. The vaccine helps the pregnant mother develop antibodies, protecting them from anyone who may have the flu. But some mothers worry about what the vaccine does to the baby. Dr. Lee says the vaccine will protect the baby too. “Everybody is always concerned about the thimerosal and the additive that are in it. Actually, thimerosal has not been associated with any autism issues and that’s usually the big red flag that everybody gets concerned about,” said Dr. Lee. If a pregnant mother gets the flu, it puts her and the baby at risk. “The risk of complications during pregnancy with the flu is much higher because your immune system is a little bit more compromised and your respiratory system also isn’t as good at clearing things,” said Dr. Lee. A pregnant mother who tests positive for the flu is at risk for pneumonia, hospitalization, even preterm labor. “A lot of symptoms they have are fever, chills, coughing, runny nose,” said Dr. Lee. Fortunately, pregnant mothers can take Tamiflu during pregnancy to help get rid of the symptoms.

HEADLINE: FDA Warns Tamiflu Could Cause Bizarre Behavior --------------------------------------- CAPTION: Federal health officials say the flu medication sold under the name Tamiflu might cause abnormal psychiatric behavior in children, such as delirium and hallucinations. (Nov. 13) --------------------------------------- [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] Just as flu season is getting underway... there is a warning about the drug Tamiflu. Federal health officials say patients taking the medication need to be closely monitored for signs of abnormal behavior. The Food and Drug Administration says doctors and parents need to keep an eye out for bizarre behavior such as delirium and hallucinations in children. Health officials say the precaution comes after reports of more than 100 new cases of abnormal or unusual psychiatric behavior after the drug was administered. Most of the cases involved Japanese children and included three deaths from falls. While the F-D-A says the relationship between Tamiflu and behavior has not been established... the agency has approved an updated label for the drug. The makers of Tamiflu say there is NO evidence the drug caused the adverse effects. They also point out that severe cases of the flu can spark the same abnormal behavior.

In this news segment from Fox 5 San Diego Dr. Fabi talks about Tamiflu and its side effects. https://clderm.com Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CLDerm/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/clderm Follow us on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cosmeticlaserdermatology/ Share this video: https://youtu.be/3KSAq9h3pWk Another 800 people had the flu and other 25 passed away in San Diego County last week. So far this season, there have been 15,135 cases of the flu virus. One of the most commonly prescribed medications for the flu is Tamiflu. But there are a few cases of severe side effects. Tamiflu is an anti-viral medication and is most effective within 48 hours when you have flu symptoms. Tamiflu decreases the rate the virus spreads in your body. Side effects for Tamiflu are very rare. Hallucinations, seizures, nightmares, suicidal thoughts, and problematic behavior can happen. It's important parents are aware of these when their child is taking this medication. Deaths for the flu are higher for infants and the elderly. The CDC still recommends taking Tamiflu because the benefits still outweigh the risks. If you are unsure, be sure to call your healthcare provider for advice about the Tamiflu. If you have anything else you would like addressed, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Fabi at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego.

Fever. Aches and pains. A general "blah" feeling. That's the perfect description of the flu, what's probably the number one ailment people may get this winter season. We found out many people may be suffering, because the one drug that can help them, is in short supply. If you got a flu shot for Strain A, chances are, you are not going to get the flu this season, but this year's flu shot, will not protect you against Flu Strain B, which is much more potent than the A strain.. And if you're looking for Tamiflu, the one drug out there that's proven to help you get through the bug, you may have a long wait. In the Cochran family, Tay got bit by the flu bug first, just before Thanksgiving. "I didn't even think that I had the flu," he says. "I just had fever and didn't feel very good and I figured I'd get over it in a few days." Four days later, little Maverick got symptoms. "The baby started running a fever the Saturday after Thanksgiving," says Jessica Cochran, "and his temperature got up to 103.9 and we took him into PM Pediatrics." When Jessica herself and 3 year old Violet got symptoms, they knew the flu bug had them firmly in its grasp. They were able to get Tamiflu quickly, the one drug that helps to shorten the severity of the current flu strain. "If they're able to get the prescription written within the first couple of days, within 48 hours of having signs or symptoms," says Jordan Morrison of Access Pharmacy, "it can make a difference in how long the flu's gonna last for that person." In a news release Thursday, Genentech, the makers of Tamiflu, said "based on our forecasts, we anticipate having ample supply of both Tamiflu formulations for the 2014-15 flu symptoms." But right now, even if you make the 48-hour window for symptoms, you may not find Tamiflu at your local pharmacy. That's because this year's flu shot does not work against the newest form of flu strain out there. "It's been a good rash of infections popping up in the area here," Morrison says, "and it must be a national issue when the distributor is unable to get more out." And it's not cheap. Even with insurance, the average price for a dose pack of Tamiflu runs between 50 and a hundred dollars. If more than one family member gets the flu, the price can put a big dent in a Christmas budget. "It was over 900 dollars for us to get Tamiflu for everybody after I got the flu," says Tay Cochran. The Cochrans hope anybody who needs Tamiflu can get it, to try and stop the flu bug in its tracks. "First signs of fever and body aches, I would go to the doctor," says Jessica Cochran, "especially to try to prevent it from spreadying to the rest of the family." "Know what you're dealing with." So why is there a shortage of Tamiflu, if the company that makes it says, it's made plenty for this flu season? We're told, that the medical distributors who buy Tamiflu to supply the drug stores, order just so much of it at a time from the company, and if there's a run on it like there is right now with so many people getting the flu, the distributors run out quicker, and then the drug stores have to run to other distributors to try to meet the demand. Bottom line.. this could be a long flu season for a lot of people. By Calvin Sneed

It sounds like you had the flu shot before you got pregnant but about two weeks ago you had a case of the flu and you're wondering what if any effects this might have on your baby and if you should tell your doctor. You should bring it up for your OB provider because it's actually recommended for pregnant women who get the flu, sometimes they should be treated with anti-viral medications. The effects of mom's having the flu while they're pregnant, the effects of that on the baby have not been well studied. But it has been documented; there have been babies that have had issues because of it. It does put babies at higher risk for cleft lip, congenital heart defects, and neural tube defects. If the mother has a really high fever while she has the flu that can also cause issues for the baby as well. It's not likely that it's caused an issue but I would definitely talk to your OB provider and decide if they feel like any other investigation or treatment is necessary. Good luck with everything and if you have any other questions for me feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and recommend us to your friends and family too.

__Swine flu and pregnancy__ Swine flu is a highly contagious respiratory disease. Pregnant women are at a higher risk of complications from swine flu, especially during the first and second trimesters because of: • A weakened immune system during pregnancy • Increased pressure on the breathing and lung function on account of the growing fetus thereby, making them more susceptible to secondary infections such as pneumonia Symptoms • Fever (in most cases) • Dry cough • Sore throat • Runny or stuffy nose • Body aches • Headaches • Chills Risk during Pregnancy • Pregnant women with flu have a higher risk of premature delivery or spontaneous abortion • In case of severe infections, the virus could infect the placenta which carries blood to the fetus • If left untreated, swine flu can have severe adverse outcomes including threat to the lives of both mother and the fetus Treatment • Swine flu during pregnancy is treated administering antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu (oseltamivir) or Relenza (zanamivir). The antiviral treatment can be done at any state of pregnancy • Apart from the medicine, supportive care includes: - Getting lots of rest - Drinking plenty of fluids - Isolating the patient to reduce further exposure to the virus/ infection Important Information If the mother is infected with swine flu right before delivery or when the baby is a newborn, a surgical mask should be placed on her (a) during labor and delivery; and (b) during breastfeeding so as not to infect the newborn. When the mother is on antiviral medication, it is considered safe to breastfeed provided she has been on the medication for at least 48 hours beforehand. Prevention • Getting a flu shot is the best method of prevention against swine flu. Note that in case of pregnant women, inactivated vaccine should be administered. Live vaccine is not recommended as the immune system is already suppressed during pregnancy • Avoid contact with infected people. Do not go to crowded places and avoid visiting public places • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth so that infection is not contracted by touching an infected surface • Wash your hands frequently through the day with warm water and soap; or with an alcohol based hand sanitiser • To ensure that you are not spreading the virus, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and dispose it after use Call your doctor 1. As soon as you notice flu-like symptoms. The treatment is more effective if started early 2. If you have come in close contact with someone who has flu or flu-like symptoms Team Ovum Hospitals

A family in North Texas said a popular flu vaccination left their six-year-old daughter with bizarre and possibly life-threatening side effects. The family, who asked not to be named by local broadcaster DFW21 News, said they asked their local physician to write a prescription for Tamiflu, an antviral medication designed to treat individuals with the flu. Shortly after administering the treatment, however, the family from Allen, Texas said that their daughter began exhibiting alarming side effects, including hallucinations and and an attempt, they believe, to hurt herself. 'The second story window was open, which is in her bedroom, and she used her desk to climb up onto it, and she was about to jump out the window when my wife came up and grabbed her,' her father said. After rushing the small child to the emergency room, a doctor informed them that in very rare cases, nervous system problems - including psychosis - could present itself in Tamiflu patients. Dr. Glenn Hardesty, with Texas Health Prosper, told DFW21 it's very rare but can happen. 'Less than 1 per cent is what's listed in the data sheet,' he said. 'I've been in practice 20 years, and I haven't seen that particular complication.' Although the reaction is placed on the medicine's warning list, the parents from Allen said that they wish they were consulted before administering the drug. 'I don't think the 16 hours of symptom relief from the flu is worth the possible side effects that we went through,' her father said. Hardesty advised parents to be thorough in their research before giving their children powerful medication. 'Know that side effects are there for a reason. They're written down for a reason. I guess they can happen, and we got the short end of the stick,' her father said. Many flu seasons don't really get going until around Christmas, and don't crescendo until February. That's how last year's flu season played out. This season got off to an early start and cases surged over the holidays. In fact, new CDC data shows that this year has been especially deadly, with 20 children and more than 85 adults succumbing to the flu already this season. While this year's epidemic is still shy of the devastating death toll seen in 2014/2015, officials warn the rate of cases is severe, and this season looks set to be the second-worst on record. The deadly H3N2 virus is now widespread in more than 46 states, and the rate of cases is quadruple that of previous years, and hospitalizations have doubled in the last week as the outbreak reaches its 'peak'. Uniquely, this year baby boomers appear to be as vulnerable to the virus as the usual victims - infants and the elderly. Unveiling the sobering statistics on Friday morning, CDC officials insisted it is not too late to get the flu shot, despite evidence that this year's vaccine is only 30 per cent effective against H3N2.
