Tamiflu Oral Suspension in Short Supply — Physician’s First Watch
Tamiflu Oral Suspension in Short Supply
By the Editors
The FDA is reporting a temporary shortage of the antiviral Tamiflu's oral suspension because of increased demand during influenza season. The shortage is only expected to last until mid-January.
In the meantime, Tamiflu (oseltamivir) capsules, which are not affected by the shortage, can be opened and mixed with a thick, sweet liquid for patients who can't swallow pills.
