    Oseltamivir, commonly known as Tamiflu, is an antiviral medication used to treat and prevent influenza (flu) infections. While it is effective in treating the flu, it is not typically recommended for use as a preventive measure. Oseltamivir is most effective when taken within 48 hours of the onset of flu symptoms, as it works by inhibiting the replication of the influenza virus in the body. It is not a vaccine and does not provide long-term immunity against the flu virus. In some cases, Oseltamivir Dosage may be prescribed for preventive use in certain high-risk individuals, such as those with compromised immune systems or chronic medical conditions. However, this is usually done under the guidance of a healthcare provider and is not a common practice for the general population. The best way to prevent getting the flu is by getting an annual flu vaccine, practicing good hygiene, such as washing hands frequently, and avoiding close contact with sick individuals.
