Japan’s health ministry has issued a warning to physicians in Japan that the bird-flu drug Tamiflu should not be prescribed to teenagers after some teens exhibited dangerous behavior after taking the drug.
The ministry reported delerium, hallucinations, and other potentially dangerous psychiatric behavior among some Japanese teens. Two Japanese youth fell from their apartment rooftops while taking the drug.
The drug’s manufacturer, Roche Holdings, indicated that they have seen no study linking the drug with the behavior in these Japanese teens.
