PARDO, Lorena et al. Rational use of oseltamivir: Efficacy and impact together with the current evidence. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2017, vol.88, n.1, pp.39-43. ISSN 0004-0584.

During the year 2016, as in other countries of the Southern Cone, an advance in the influenza A epidemic was observed in Uruguay, leading to an increase on the demand of medical care and the need to update medical recommendations on prevention and treatment of influenza infection. In this article, the Committee of Pharmacology and Therapeutics of the Uruguayan Pediatrics Society makes a brief update of the information available related to oseltamivir, which accessibility has to be guaranteed, promoting its rational use, due to its scarce benefits, known risks and limited availability. This is a further contribution to strengthening the promotion of the rational use of medicines in children and adolescents.
