Thriving high school football star, 16, commits suicide after taking Tamiflu - and his family blames the medication

A 16-year-old boy has committed suicide days after being prescribed Tamiflu to treat his influenza.

Charlie Harp, a high school football player and wrestler from Franklin Township, Indiana, was thriving socially and academically when he fell ill last Thursday, his family said.

But within 24 hours of starting medication, his aunt and uncle, who were also his guardians, found him dead in the garage - and his family believe it was the drugs that drove him to suicide.

While Tamiflu manufacturer Roche insists side effects are not fatal, this story is the latest in a slew of accounts of children hallucinating or attempting suicide after being prescribed the influenza-fighting medication.
