FDA Posts New Tamiflu Warning
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that Tamiflu, a prescription drug manufactured by Roche and used for treating influenza, may cause abnormal behavior such as self-injury and hallucination, especially in children. The drug will now have to carry a new warning stating that those taking it for the flu should be monitored closely for confusion and abnormal behavior. So for all those that have built a private stockpile out there in preparation for the coming pandemic, this one's for you.
