"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today warned consumers about a potentially harmful product represented as “Generic Tamiflu” sold over the Internet. FDA tests revealed that the fraudulent product does not contain Tamiflu's active ingredient,"...
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].
