AccessRx.com Provides Same-Day Shipping for Tamiflu in the Wake of WHO Raising H1N1 Swine Flu Alert Level to Phase 6

Tempe, AZ 6/16/2009 04:04 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Although many consumers have become complacent in recent weeks about the threat that the H1N1 Swine Flu virus poses, they may want to consider purchasing Tamiflu in the wake of the World Health Organization (WHO) raising the pandemic alert level to phase 6 – the highest phase possible.

Tamiflu (http://www.accessrx.com/tamiflu.htm) is one of only two medications that are effective in treating the H1N1 Swine Flu virus, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). And online pharmacy AccessRx.com has Tamiflu in stock for consumers who do not yet have Tamiflu on hand.

Although a prior prescription is not required at http://www.accessrx.com, patients must provide their health information and medical history before a U.S.-licensed doctor considers writing the prescription. Patients may also call 1-800-467-0297. Patients should not take Tamiflu until flu symptoms are present.

Dr. Margaret Chan, the director-general of the WHO, said on June 11 that "countries should prepare to see cases, or the further spread of cases, in the near future. Countries where outbreaks appear to have peaked should prepare for a second wave of infection."About 30,000 cases in 74 countries have resulted in 145 deaths. In the United States, there have been more than 13,000 cases and 27 deaths.

“Although the severity of the pandemic in terms of severe or fatal infections is low-to-moderate,” said Rich Bernstein, marketing director for AccessRx.com, “it is impossible to tell if the H1N1 Swine Flu strain will mutate to become stronger. Due to the possibility of this happening, many consumers have decided to play it safe and have Tamiflu on-hand in the event they or a loved one contract the H1N1 virus.”

Tamiflu is an oral medication that can be obtained before the onset of Swine Flu as a course of treatment. Doctors generally recommend that Tamiflu not be used before the onset of the flu. Rather, it should be taken within 48 hours of the first sign of flu symptoms. Typical flu shots have been rendered ineffective as a treatment for Swine Flu.

Tamiflu, a brand name, is also referred to as oseltamivir, the name of the drug. The CDC states on its website that Tamiflu is effective for the treatment of Swine Flu symptoms that can include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite, coughing, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

AccessRx.com has served more than 250,000 satisfied customers over the course of 10 years. Based in the U.S., the online pharmacy provides only FDA-approved, brand-name medications that can be shipped the same day if the order is processed before 4 p.m. EST.

“We offer peace of mind to consumers who can order conveniently from their own homes,” said Bernstein, who added that only one package of Tamiflu can be ordered per customer per flu season, due to demand. “http://www.accessRx.com offers a valuable service for people who want to be prepared if the H1N1 Swine Flu continues to emerge as a serious threat.”
