    I've had it. Got offered Tamiflu, but I didn't collect it, and my case was a mild one that lasted a week.
    Good I heard that tamiflu can give you mental problems. If you need any evident look no further than japan where tamiflu prescription is extensive and half of those patient have reported having experienced hallucination. There was one story in japan about a young girl who was prescribed tamiflu and after she recovered she threw herself in front of a moving truck:eek:

    Yep I have it, but i'm recovering and feeling much better, hopefully it'll be gone by the next few days. I'm taking the new tamiflu medicine but the posts above aren't making me feel any better and I doubt i'll go jump in front of a truck.

    Well i wans't just accusing the french because i dislike them and felt like it :P i have nothing wrong with french but it was proven by the university that at least 30 of the french students tested positive but couldn't go home so they stayed at the uni and we went there and most likely got it from them.

    I know a few people who have had it but I live in London so its quite rife in my area. Havn't managed to get it myself yet but I bet I do, I'm incredibly unlucky.

    My Sister has been on Holiday in Barcelona. She's arrived home with a horrid cold,slight fever & possibly a Chest Infection.

    A week today we're going on a Family Holiday to South Africa. Needless to say everyone is worrying she has Swine Flu & may pass it to us

    Mum said once someone is showing symptoms they can't pass it to others. Is this correct ?
