Default Tamiflu does have side effects, (as children suffer nightmares and nausea)

Daily Mail: "Tamiflu does have side effects, admits top doctor, as children suffer nightmares and nausea"

Quote:
The government's chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson has said Tamiflu should still be given to children, despite more than half of young recipients who take the drug suffering side effects such as nausea and nightmares.

The drug being used to fight swine flu can also produce stomach pain, diarrhoea and sleeping problems.

Researchers in two studies reported that many children found concentration difficult after taking the drug - which could affect their performance in school tests and exams.

The findings will cause deep concern among parents and raise the question of whether the powerful anti-viral should be handed out so widely when the vast majority of swine flu cases involve only a mild illness.

Sir Liam BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'All drugs do have side-effects. It is always a case of deciding the balance between benefiting a patient from a treatment and the side-effects.

'Most of the side-effects are relatively minor - a degree of nausea, a bit of a tummy upset, the sort of thing you get quite often with antibiotics.'

It seems that the media around here is also ramping up their effort to make people feel safe about the vaccine.

It disgusts me because the "doctors" they get to tell people this KNOW that the swine flu is nowhere near as deadly as they're trying to make it out to be.
