Swine Flu medication

More on this swine flu thing. According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, past flu vaccines will not work against swine flu. Fortunately, there are anti-viral medication which work against it.

One is called Oseltamivir, also known as Tamiflu, and the other Zanamivir, also known as Relenza. Out of curiousity, I checked the Mercury Drug website for these drugs and am happy to report that Tamiflu capsules seems to be available.
