A young girl in Allen, Texas has a scary encounter with this flu medicine.

The family wanted to stay anonymous.They did, however, want people to know about these strange sides effects. They said that their daughter was suffering from hallucinations, she was running away from school. They believed she was even attempting to hurt herself.
The girl's father told KTVT-TV that "That second story window was open, which is in her bedroom, and she used her desk to climb up onto it, and she was about to jump out the window when my wife came up and grabbed her".
According to Dr. Glenn Hardesty, he says "It Can Happen." He adds, "It is written in the fine print".
The little girl's father says, "I don't think the 16 hours of symptom relief from the flu is worth the possible side effects that we went through".

Dr. Hardesty says that the side effects should only be temporary.
