Important Information on Relenza
Dosing InformationThe dose of Relenza your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Whether you are treating or preventing the flu
- For flu prevention, whether you are taking Relenza because of a flu case in your household or because of a flu outbreak in your community
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are taking.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Side Effects of RelenzaAs with any medicine, side effects are possible with Relenza. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
Common side effects of Relenza include but are not limited to:
- Sinus infections
- Joint pain.
