Tamiflu®, or oseltamivir, is a flu medication manufactured by Genentech/Roche Laboratories that is used to treat certain types of influenza infections. Tamiflu® is only effective if started within 48 hours of when influenza symptoms appear. It works by stopping the flu virus from spreading in the body. Tamilfu is not a flu vaccine, but it can help prevent users from getting influenza.
While some patients order online to get cheap Tamiflu®, Internet drug sales may not provide safe or effective medications. Obtaining cheap Tamiflu® that is ineffective does not result in any savings. Using Tamiflu® coupons, printable coupon offers, drug manufacturer's rebates, co-pay assistance and discount prescription support programs can help reduce the cost of Tamiflu® prescription, while ensuring an authentic product.
