sherbear200 asks:

Are there any vitamins that would interfere with taking Tamiflu

I have a really good multivitamin I would like to take but I want to make sure that taking multivitimins won't interfere with the way Tamiflu needs to work. I have heard before that certain foods or vitamins can interfere with antibiotics.

Thank you,

Good question.  While it is true that certain foods block or delay certain antibiotics from being well absorbed, I am not sure about vitamins.  Ask Medimmune which is the company that makes the vaccine for mist or Sanofi-Pasteur who makes the injection the question. You can locate their medical information phone numbers on Google.
