A new study out of England shows a growing number of side effects associated with the drug Tamiflu.The report says 29 percent suffered nausea in a study that included more than 100 children.

Twelve percent suffered sleeping problems, including nightmares.

Despite the problem with side effects, most health agencies continue to say Tamiflu is safe and that the benefits outweigh the risks.

Earlier this week, a separate study said pregnant women who get swine flu are four times more likely to be hospitalized as other people with the virus.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.
