I think you're assuming a lot of group altruism in this post

  In reply to: PSA about Tamiflu and the Flu  posted by dulac89

If tamiflu is even slightly, marginally better for a patient than not taking it...they're going to take it.

The prospect of the viruses mutating and making it overall worse for our entire population isn't going to stop someone on an individual level.

Really great education post though...I just think it's a lost cause to try and convince people not to take drugs because 2 years down the road we'll all be better off if we limit supply now. You won't be able to change Tamiflu use on the demand side in this manner...there'd have to be a large change on the supply side to control this.
