Hi,
A while ago I registered as a new member and SOMEWHERE there was an entry refering to a manufacturer who would give free trainer pens. Actually someone else was saying they saw this entry and couldn't remember where. I have a 4 year old who is P.A. and need to get educated as well as trained so our family can deal with this life treathing allergy. He has already been rejected from attending a preschool type program called Moms day out. I need info to educte the nursery staff at the YMCA and these trainer pens. Please help me.
Thanks so much
Also a tip... Jeremy had ear tube surgery 3 weeks ago and the wrist band with his name and doctor info is still on (cute dogs on it) and the info written in ink is still very easy to read. (after many bathes, etc) For those who have kids allergic to nickel or just want a disposable and firmly attached medical alert braclet it is ideal. I plan on going to the day surgery office and begging for some. Go try it!
Thanks for your help in advance.
Susie

Dey Labs gives out free trainers-at least they did to me. I recently told someone else about it and they weren't very nice and begrudgingly agreed to send her one Try it, though-maybe you'll get a nice operator like I did. Their # is 1-800-755-5560

Hi...
We got our epi-trainer from FAN for only 2.00. I thought that was incredibly reasonable..especiall for a training tool that could be used countless times and could save my childs life. FYI..FAN is the Food Allergy Network, if you haven't found it yet..its great! Tammy

Here is a reminder about Dey Labs and free Epi-Pen trainers. I called and they sent me three trainers and some written info. I gave them to the school nurse for the training sessions. Their # is 1-800-755-5560

Hi,
I dont mean to sound naive, but what exactly is an epi pen trainer???

The trainer is just like a regular epi-pen but without the needle or medicine inside. It is used to teach people how to give an epi-pen injection.It is a great learning tool and gives people hands on experience without the stress of a reaction happening.

I called the number for Dey and they were very testy, wanted to know how I had gotten the number. I sort of "bullied" her into sending me one. The whole call left me with a headache. She said she did not want to send out any more free ones since they now come with the double-pack epipens.
Just wanted to let y'all know that maybe this source has dried up and that purchasing through FAAN for $2.00 may be the only way to get them in the future. (besides getting a prescription for the 2-pack epi pens)
