What the Expert Says:

Dear Lajo:

Tamiflu will work to decrease the symptoms of this H1N1 virus and shorten the duration of the illness slightly.  In young children it decreases the shedding of the virus from their noses to a degree. It is not uniformly needed by all children who are ill.  Your pediatrician will determine that with you.
