Tamiflu is supposed to lessen the symptoms and duration if started within 48 hours of getting the flu. You need an Rx.

Tamiflu is specifically for influenza, which is a lot more severe than your average flu. Over the counter, Theraflu works well.

"Flu" is just a nickname for Influenza! There is no difference! Many people call a cold or virus the 'flu' but if they really have the flu...or influenza...then Tamiflu is the way to go!
