But see The Lancet
Oseltamivir in adults with influenza accelerates time to clinical symptom alleviation, reduces risk of lower respiratory tract complications, and admittance to hospital, but increases the occurrence of nausea and vomiting.

Dear Juan,

Does the JAMA article say that there is no evidence for antivirals? (due to paywall I can not read it).

If that is the case (and in view of the dedicated website by the BMJ  http://www.bmj.com/tamiflu ) is it acceptable that Eurosurveillance publishes an article with in the abstract "Treating influenza with antivirals in addition to prevention with vaccination will be important."
