Interactive: SWINE FLU

Some pharmacists are seeing a shortage of the children’s version of the flu drug Tamiflu. Tamiflu is one of two drugs that works against swine flu. It’s also used to treat seasonal flu. Drugmaker Roche said Wednesday that it has been facing increasing demand for Tamiflu since swine flu first appeared in April. The company decided to focus production on adult-strength pills, rather than the children’s version. A company spokeswoman says adult pills are still in good supply, and pharmacies can grind them up into smaller doses for children.
