Health Canada Warns Of Hallucinations Among Tamiflu Users

OTTAWA - The antiviral drug Tamiflu has been linked with reports of hallucinations and abnormal behaviour, Health Canada said Wednesday.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said doctors and parents should watch for signs of bizarre behaviour in children taking Tamiflu, after cases were reported overseas. Ten deaths have been reported in Canada as a result of reaction to Tamiflu.

WASHINGTON - Patients who take Tamiflu should be closely monitored for signs of abnormal behavior, health officials said in ordering an updated label for the flu drug.

The new precaution comes after reports of about 100 new cases of delirium, hallucinations and other unusual behavior in children treated with the drug. Most were Japanese children.

The Food and Drug Administration said that the relationship between the drug and the behavior had not been established.


Explains much, it must be in the water in D.C.
