Real story of the patient who wanted Tamiflu to be called in but the patient was advised to be seen by the doctor rather than calling Tamiflu without seeing the patient.
The patient was seen at the walk in medical center for high fever, congestion, cough, bodyache. Dr. Jain examined the patient and ordered the blood tests and chest x-ray. The flu test was negative and the patient also had flu shot. The patient was treated for sinusitis and bronchitis with antibiotics and also IV was given as the patient was dehydrated from high fever. The patient felt better in about one hour from hydration.
Tamiflu was not given because the patient seems to have bacterial infection. Moreover, the patient had flu shot and flu test was also negative.
