Seems to corroborate what ERs and physicians are reporting about increase in cases of flu.
An analysis from GoodRx reveals three important things to know:
1. Researchers examined a large sample of U.S. pharmacy fills and found prescriptions for Tamiflu are up 640 percent from the same time last year.
2. In 2017, fills for Tamiflu peaked in February, suggesting prescriptions could keep increasing over the next few weeks.
3. Physicians and pharmacists nationwide have struggled to acquire Tamiflu for patients amid increased demand for the drug, although the FDA has not yet confirmed an official shortage.
