Tamiflu, not as great as it seems

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tamiflu was applauded years ago as the wonder drug that might put a quick stop to your misery or at least cut it short when you first develop flu symptoms.

Now, the CDC says this season, they're finding that popular antiviral treatment is not working in over 90 percent of the cases. This is because most people have developed a Tamiflu resistence.

Luckily, flu activity has been relatively low this season, but the CDC says this is a wakeup call to scientists and drug makers that we need more wonder treatments.
