Were you told to finish the course? If you were, then yes I think you should carry on giving her the tamiflu (in the same vain as finishing a course of antibiotics).

Absolutely finish it! You don't want to encourage the flu to become resistant to it, that would be bad news.

the only reason to stop would be in cases of side effects, as per the advice we were given with DD3 (she was in hospital last weekend DXd with it).

if you have started you must finish, she may take a turn for the worse v quickly

please finish it, otherwise the likelihood of the virus becoming resistant to Tamiflu is much more likely.
