These events may occur in the setting of encephalitis or encephalopathy but can occur without obvious severe disease. * These events have been reported in patients receiving oseltamivir, primarily among pediatric patients, appear to be uncommon, and often had an abrupt onset and rapid resolution * If neuropsychiatric symptoms occur, the risks and benefits of continuing treatment should be evaluated for each patient
