"Neuropsychiatric events have been reported during the administration of Tamiflu in patients with influenza, especially in children and adolescents."

:( So very sad. Read the fine print people. Death is a possible side effect of almost anything we ingest or do! It's the risk we take.

And now they tell us that the flu test is only 63% accurate!

So they're sending lots of infected folks back out to infect others : (

Did influenza used to be called something else? Like back in the 1700-1800's?

I first thought of grippe - because it is the French word & some english speakers have used it historically.

I googled it and "ague" seems to be a close runner up.

Without a lab diagnosis, most illnesses were named for their symptoms in the old days. But the name influenza itself has been in use a long time - at least since the Spanish flu of 1918 or so.

And this from wikipedia
Etymology

The word Influenza comes from the Italian language meaning "influence" and refers to the cause of the disease; initially, this ascribed illness to unfavorable astrological influences.[170] Changes in medical thought led to its modification to influenza del freddo, meaning "influence of the cold". The word influenza was first used in English to refer to the disease we know today in 1703 by J. Hugger of the University of Edinburgh in his thesis De Catarrho epidemio, vel Influenza, prout in India occidentali sese ostendit.[171] Archaic terms for influenza include epidemic catarrh, la grippe (from the French, first used by Molyneaux in 1694 [172]), sweating sickness, and Spanish fever (particularly for the 1918 flu pandemic strain).[173]

I was thinking grippe, too, because that's the word used in Spanish on the meds! LOL So, it's really a pretty vague kind of term.
