    Read the label before buying it or ask the doctor or go online about it.

    Hi TiaDesai!

    CosmicTraveler is correct. Ask the doctor, read the label, research online. It is very wise to be cautious of medications while experiencing pregnancy. Here is a link for you to begin, but again ask the doctor, read the label, and research it for yourself online.

    Your sister-in-law is very fortunate to have someone looking out for her and the baby's well being. Congratulations and good luck!

    well you are probably right
    tamiflu cant be taken by pregnant women
    however you can consult your doctor again and ask for another alternative
    for more information on tamiflu you can go to http://www.drugdelivery.ca/s3353-s-TAMIFLU.aspx
