Daughter Has Flu...Man, this stinks. So far it's first day and she was up to 101.5, but now down to 99.6. It's a tough decision. Do I bring her in for Tamiflu? I checked the side effects and they are very chemo-like with severe flu symptoms, along with sleep disturbances, hyper, hallucinations, and blackouts. I don't like that it's hitting the mental realm. Link 1 LInk 2 Yet, then I check the stats. And that brought me to these articles. I've had friends that had it before it was announced, and recently, they all say it's long and mean, but they get over it. Hub and I are strong believers in non-treatment, and in not worrying about germs, which we feel is why we get less flues every year than the rest of our extended family. We don't medicate for fevers unless they are over 102.5, OR it's night time over 100.2 and we don't want our kid's fever spiking during the night while we're asleep.I do contain flues successfully by using oust and lysol (and keeping the child in their room) once I KNOW we have a flu inside the house, but that's only to decrease the germ levels. We figure our bodies can handle some germs, and that they won't hurt us. I've actually had people over with NOBODY else getting sick doing this.What do you all think of this? You're the best researchers I know. Is this flu overdone? Is the 'remedy' tried and true?November 12 2009 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
