The price of EpiPens?
I am just curious about what everyone else is paying for an Epipen? I have read several times on this board that people have "lots" of extras just in case. Where I live in Canada they cost around $80.00. With a relatively short shelf life,this is a lot of money! I never hear anyone mention Ana-Kits. Does anyone have those? They are a needle which is pre-loaded with Epinephrine. They are quite a bit cheaper but a little more fiddley. Its just until reading some of the messages (I think some were on the old discussion board), I had never thought to give the preschool teacher (or anyone else) and extra one for back up in case one didn't work properly.I wonder if this happens often?
I am so glad to have this web-site to refer to, because nobody else (even the doctors!) can really relate unless they've "been there" !
