FDA Advise Warning on Tamiflu

The FDA is advising that packaging on flu drug Tamiflu be changed to include a warning for child users. The warning will instructs parents and doctors to keep a close eye on children who are using Tamiflu (now being used to treat bird flu), as the drug has been linked to over 1000 cases of "abnormal behavior" in children overseas, including three deaths. Japan in particular has reported hundreds of cases of hallucinations and delirium.
