Parents say 6-year-old suffers frightening side effects after taking Tamiflu

Family speaks out after 6-year-old girl suffers frightening side effects after she took drug to treat flu symptoms

However, psychiatric side effects of Tamiflu, an anti viral medication that can ease flu symptoms, have been seen before in patients primarily of Asian heritage for reasons unknown.

A little girl in Texas suffered freakish psychotic side effects after taking the drug Tamiflu to help get over the flu.

The family from Allen, who wants to remain anonymous, says the side effects were stunning: hallucinations, running away from school and an attempt, they believe, to hurt herself.

Her father adds, "The second story window was open, which is in her bedroom, and she used her desk to climb up onto it, and she was about to jump out the window when my wife came up and grabbed her".

The list also includes "delusions" and "hallucinations" as possible side-effects from the medication, but they are very rare.

"It can happen. Under 1% is what's recorded in the information sheet", Texas crisis room doctor Glenn Hardesty told KTVT.

There are several common side effects of the medication: nausea, vomiting, headaches, and fatigue.

While every drug comes with various potential side effects, which may or may not manifest, the effects Tamiflu had on their young daughter was beyond anything the family could have imagined.

The side-effects on the Texan girl should be short-term, and the family sent a letter to the FDA about their experience. They're written down for a reason.

"Kids and young people with this season's flu virus might be at a higher hazard for seizures, perplexity, or unusual conduct ahead of schedule amid their ailment. These serious side effects may happen shortly after beginning Tamiflu or may happen in people when the flu is not treated".

If new symptoms develop while taking Tamiflu, you should contact your healthcare provider. In the meantime, they encourage any parents to think twice and do their homework before giving Tamiflu or other drugs to their children. Neuropsychiatric events have been reported during administration of Tamiflu in patients with influenza, especially in children and adolescents.
