EpiPens - still good after expiration date?
Recently, our pediatrician (whose son needs an EpiPen for a shellfish allergy) told me that EpiPens are actually good for a year after their expiration date. I thought this was good to hear since they are expensive and do seem to expire in a year. I will still buy fresh EpiPens every year, but I think I will use the previous year's Epi as a backup.
Has anyone else heard of this from their doctor?
