As Tamiflu Hits Record Sales, It’s Making Kids Hallucinate and Turn Deadly Violent

The 2017-2018 flu season is turning out to be one of the worst outbreaks in recent history. Already this year, the flu has claimed the lives of dozens of children and hospitalized countless others. In the midst of the turmoil and sickness, however, the medication to treat the flu—Tamiflu—is also reportedly claiming lives.

As this is one of the worst outbreaks, the makers of Tamiflu are seeing record sales. However, this is not good for the children whose parents are coming forward to expose the horrendous side effects caused by the medicine which—in some instances—have proven to be far worse than getting the flu.

Oseltamivir, the antiviral medication marketed as Tamiflu, is used to treat flu symptoms caused by influenza virus in patients who have had symptoms for less than 2 days. While there are plenty of common side-effects ranging from hives to difficulty breathing, some of the less common side effects have parents crying foul.

Some people using Tamiflu have had rare side effects of sudden confusion, delirium, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or self-injury. Adding to the ominous nature of these side-effects is the fact that these symptoms have occurred most often in children.

Last month, 16-year-old Charlie Harp was given Tamiflu, the entirely normal boy then took his own life hours later.

“Had I known this was an issue, I would’ve never given it to him,” remarked Jackie Ray, Harp’s aunt and guardian.

The parents of a six-year-old little girl gave their daughter Tamiflu and she began hallucinating, ran away, and then tried to kill herself by jumping out of a window.

“She was about to jump out the window when my wife came up and grabbed her,” recalled the girl’s father, who wanted to stay anonymous.

As KRBK reports, the Wallens say their 2-year-old son, Steven, was twitching, hallucinating, and slamming his head in pain after taking the medicine after being diagnosed with the flu.

“When I walked in the room I was greeted with him slapping me across the face, and then continually smacking his head into the pillow saying ‘ouch, ouch, ouch,’” says Andrea Wallen, Steven’s mother.

When they stopped giving him Tamiflu, the erratic behavior stopped.

“Tamiflu, like any medication, has potential side effects,” Dr. Amy Edwards, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital explained to News 5 Cleveland.

Among them: “neuropsychiatric” side effects.

Because there are so many people now taking Tamiflu, the side-effects are skyrocketing. “We are seeing the side effects more this year than we’ve seen it in previous years, but that’s just because the total number of kids taking the medication has gone up, not because there’s something wrong with the medicine itself,” cautioned Dr. Edwards.

However, while these dangerous side effects are rare, they are experienced by one to two percent of children. A one in fifty shot that your child may try to take their own life is a pretty big deal. Parents are now faced with the choice to medicate their kids to fight the flu virus or let them ride it out.

Doctors are urging parents to consider their options when their child has the flu, only recommending that high-risk children get the medicine and if they do take it, watch them closely.

“For the parents who are insisting that their kid get Tamiflu because of how scared they are about the pediatric deaths we’ve had, if your kid is not high risk, then you do need to think about the fact that this drug does come with side effects, and so we do not give it to every person that has influenza routinely,” Dr. Edwards explained.

If your child has taken Tamiflu, experts are saying to take them to the hospital immediately if they experience any change in behavior.

KARMA? Cops Steal Pot Edibles From Dispensary, Hallucinate So Bad They Got Stuck in a Tree

ediblesedibles

Two police officers have been suspended after they called for back-up, and the responding officer discovered that they were hallucinating from marijuana edibles—which they reportedly confiscated while raiding a dispensary.

CP24 reported that the officers consumed marijuana edibles while on duty, and then “called for help after one of the officers ended up in a tree.” The female officer who responded to the call “slipped and sustained a serious head injury.”

In response to the incident, Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack refused to name the individuals, but said that there was an ongoing investigation and the suspects “could be charged or they could just be cleared through the investigation.”

“All I can tell you is that there is an ongoing investigation,” McCormack said. “I’m not aware of the specific allegations around the investigation and I’m not going to comment or speculate until the investigation is complete.”

The officers have been identified as Vito Dominelli and Jamie Young, and CTV News reported that they were “conducting plain-clothed surveillance” around 1 a.m. when they called for help. The officer who made the call claimed that he felt like he was going to pass out.

CTV also noted that Dominelli, who has “cultivated a considerable social media following by posting videos in uniform where he engages in light-hearted activities, like lip-synching to music,” has since set all of his accounts to private.

While McCormack would not say that Dominelli’s social media presence was connected to the investigation, he did say that he is concerned about officers giving the public the impression that they are not devoted to their jobs.

“I am always concerned when something belittles what we do in policing and doesn’t represent us in the right light,” McCormack said. “I don’t want the public to be under the misconception that we have a bunch of officers who have nothing to do but use social media.”

Both reports noted that while the department has not confirmed that the officers obtained the edibles while on the job, investigators are looking into whether they were seized during a recent dispensary raid.

Brian Patterson, president of the Ontario Safety League, told the Toronto Sun that he is not surprised by the incident, and he believes it serves as an example for why everyone should be cautious before they consume marijuana edibles.

“That’s what can happen when you digest this drug,” Patterson said. “I get a sense there is pressure to move these edibles on to the table quicker and I am saying I am not sure I ever want them on the table at all. We need to get a better handle on just what these edibles are and what the effects are on people who take them.”

As The Free Thought Project has reported, these officers are not the only ones who seem interested in trying marijuana edibles—and they don’t seem to have a problem using their badges to obtain the products. In June 2015, police officers in Santa Ana, California, were caught on surveillance cameras raiding a marijuana dispensary and stealing the merchandise.

The cameras captured the officers making profane jokes to one another while they played darts and testing out the merchandise in the store. In one part of the video, an officer can be seen taking a big bite out of what appears to be a marijuana edible, before he shakes his head in satisfaction and gives the other officers a “thumbs up.”

After entering the dispensary wearing riot gear, with guns drawn, the officers then began to make crude comments about the store’s owners and guests. They even suggested assaulting one of the occupants who was a partially blind paraplegic.

When a male officer asked, “Did you punch that one-legged old Benita?” a female officer responded, “I was about to kick her in her f—ing nub.”

Two police officers have been suspended after they called for back-up, and the responding officer discovered that they were hallucinating from marijuana edibles – which they reportedly confiscated while raiding a dispensary.
