While recent reports of psychotic episodes  in kids following Tamiflu use are concerning, studies have found even more serious complications. Researchers analyzing possible correlations between Tamiflu use and sudden death found that:
“These data suggest Tamiflu use could induce sudden deterioration leading to death especially within 12 hours of prescription. These findings are consistent with sudden deaths observed in a series of animal toxicity studies, several reported case series and the results of prospective cohort studies. From ‘the precautionary principle’ the potential harm of Tamiflu should be taken into account and further detailed studies should be conducted.
