FDA Warns Patients About Tamiflu

The Food and Drug Administration is sending a warning about a popular flu-fighter.

The FDA reports more than 100 cases of delirium, hallucinations and other unusual psychiatric behavior in kids who took Tamiflu.

Both the FDA and the drug maker says there is no concrete evidence that Tamiflu caused the problems because they might have been triggered by the flu itself.

At any rate, the agency is updating the label to suggest that patients be closely monitored while taking Tamiflu.
