We compared symptomatic, clinically abnormal behaviors between subjects with and without influenza infection. Furthermore, we estimated the influence of Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) on these symptoms. The abnormal behaviors generally appeared during the daytime, with prominent motor symptoms, with numerous recurrences, over 24 hrs after a rise in fever in patients with influenza as compared to those without influenza. Prominent motor symptoms, recurrence of abnormal behaviors, and appearance over 24 hrs after a rise in fever were less frequent with Tamiflu administration. It was suggested that Tamiflu neither worsened nor promoted the abnormal behaviors.
