"What is the 2009 H1NI (swine flu) vaccine?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the H1N1 vaccine as an injection and an intranasal spray made by CSL, Sanofi Pasteur, MedImmune and Novartis.
Reports of overdoses with TAMIFLU have been received from clinical trials and during postmarketing experience. In the majority of cases reporting overdose, no adverse events were reported. Adverse events reported following overdose were similar in nature to those observed with therapeutic doses of TAMIFLU [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
TAMIFLU is contraindicated in patients with known serious hypersensitivity to oseltamivir or any component of the product. Severe allergic reactions have included anaphylaxis and serious skin reactions including toxic epidermal necrolysis, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, and erythema multiforme [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].
