Tamiflu approved for infants with new flu symptoms
December 24, 2012 (WLS) -- A popular flu drug is now available for children as young as two weeks old.
The Food and Drug Administration says that Tamiflu can now be prescribed for infants who have had flu-like symptoms for under two days.
Tamiflu is used for both flu treatment and prevention in adults, though it's only a treatment for infants.
More than $3 billion worth of the drug were sold in 2009 during the swine flu epidemic, although some researchers say that they are not convinced of its effectiveness.
