    thats ridiculous and shouldn't be allowed.. tamiflu needs a perscription, so is this law firm going to dispense medication without a prescription?

    Thats what I was wondering:confused: This frightens me because of the potential there is of the swine flu becoming resistant to Tamiflu. The same has happened with antibiotic use. Its been over used and now some bacteria are resistant.

    I think what's happening is big firms like that have an "in house" doctor that is conveniently on their health plan and he will prescribe it.

    I heard about that on NPR, and the firm is being investigated because of the stockpile.

    Not at all surprised. If working on a Closing, I don't think even flu could keep them home. Think they would medicate themselves and work through it. Swine flu may be different, though.
