Frequently Asked Questions
What is Tamiflu?
Tamiflu is an antiviral drug used to treat the flu (influenza A and influenza B). Tamiflu helps to reduce flu symptoms by preventing the flu virus from multiplying in the body. Tamiflu is meant to be taken within 48 hours of the beginning of flu symptoms.
Is a prescription required for Tamiflu?
Yes, a prescription is required for Tamiflu. There is no Tamiflu over the counter option currently available at this time. In order to get a prescription for Tamiflu, you must first have a medical consultation with a licensed doctor, either in person or during a virtual doctor’s appointment.
Can online doctors prescribe Tamiflu?
Yes, online doctors can prescribe Tamiflu for flu treatment after an online medical consultation. You can request a Tamiflu prescription online by booking an online appointment with a PlushCare doctor.
During your virtual appointment, you will discuss your current symptoms, medical history, and any current medications before the doctor makes a diagnosis. If the physician determines that Tamiflu would be needed for your flu treatment and care plan, they will then send a prescription to your pharmacy for pick up.
Can urgent care prescribe Tamiflu?
Yes, urgent care can typically prescribe Tamiflu if you qualify. You can use PlushCare for online urgent care needs, including requesting a Tamiflu prescription. Seeing a doctor is often faster and more convenient online, saving time that would have been spent driving or in waiting rooms.
What is the typical Tamiflu dosage?
While dosage will depend on a doctor’s instructions, typical Tamiflu dosage is as follows:
- For adults and teens age 13 and older: Take 75 mg twice daily, for 5 days
- For children between 2 weeks old to 12 years old: Take 1 dose (based on the child’s weight), twice daily, for 5 days
Consult your doctor for specific Tamiflu dosage instructions.
What are symptoms of the flu?
Symptoms that could indicate the flu include:
- Sore throat
- Stuffy or runny nose
- Body aches or chills
How long does the flu last?
For non-complicated flu cases symptoms usually last for 3-7 days. That said, some people report feeling ill for two weeks, even after their fever has subsided. It is possible for a cough to last for up to 8 weeks. Roughly 200,000 people a year require hospitalization for the flu.
Can the flu be treated with medicine?
Yes, Tamiflu is a prescription medication that can be used to treat the flu. Tamiflu has been shown to reduce flu symptoms and lead to a quicker recovery if taken within 48 hours of infection. You can request a Tamiflu prescription online by booking an appointment with a doctor at PlushCare.
Is Tamiflu over the counter?
Tamiflu currently requires a prescription from a medical doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. You can request a prescription for Tamiflu from your doctor, but Tamiflu over the counter medication is not available at this time.
How much does Tamiflu cost?
Without insurance, the cost for the Tamiflu brand is about $175, though the cost varies depending on the pharmacy. The generic version of Tamiflu, called oseltamivir, may help you lower your Tamiflu cost. Oseltamivir costs around $135 for a 10-dose prescription without insurance. If you have insurance, your plan may cover part or all of the cost of a Tamiflu prescription, depending on your insurance company and what level of coverage you have.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
