I am running out of things to buy I guess but I am looking at Flu test kits. They run 20.00 each but you have to purchase a pack of 10...so it is a $200.00 hit.

This test kit is for A and B flu of which I am sure that all flu will some A or B in them...I may be wrong on this.

I also have to see how long the tests are good for...no good if just one year and a $200.00 investment.

My thinking is I want to be sure if we have the flu before I use the Tamiflu...but I don't want to go out of the house.

What are your thoughts on this subject.
Always Be Prepared

Call and find out how long they are good for. If they are good for a while then it would be worth having in your stocks. You can sell them to family/friends if you don't want to keep all 10.

Flumom...if you have the money and it will raise your comfort level...and keep you from taking/giving Tamiflu only if really needed... go for it.   Make sure you read up on Tamiflu .
