Should I be taking Tamiflu if I am Pregnant?

During pregnancy, there is an increased risk of complications from influenza, including swine flu, especially in the last 3 months of pregnancy.

The drugs used to treat swine flu, including Tamiflu, have not been around for very long, so there is little data (as of Nov 09). According to many sources, they have been used by pregnant women, and have not been found to harm mothers or their babies.

You should always consult your doctor before taking any medications while pregnant.
