Bird Flu Medicine (Tamiflu, Swiss-based comp) Drives Teens to Suicide

Seoul Shinmun, a local daily, reported that a woman in her 30s said she had nightmares after taking the drug in 2005.

Japan has imported the drug since 2001, long before its effect on bird flu was acknowledged.
However, since then, there have been 1,268 cases of extraordinary behavior reported, of which 85 percent were from teenagers. They reportedly committed suicide by jumping out of buildings or into cars. http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/include/print.asp?newsIdx=24103
