I would definitely stop using the Tamiflu. 75mg is a lot of mg for this pill. I find using over the counter multi-symptom cold medicines work just as well if not better. Try some delsum it works wonders.

none of the cold medicines workd for me... i tried everything..my temperature was still 104 and up.. Tamiflu helped reduce my fever... but i am afraid stopping tablets earlier is dangerous should finish the entire course..I dont feel any bad reactions till now.

Most medicines will tell you if y ou experience bad reactions to stop taking immediately and talk to your doctor.
I would suggest finding a new doctor for a 2nd opinion.
