I need Epipens!

Hi, I am a Canadian living in Costa Rica. My daughter has the dreaded peanut allergy. We came with 5 epipens, 2 have now expired and we recently had to use one. We were told we could buy them here....but that is not the case. I have two left, but the hospital is a 25 minute drive away. I also have friends coming to visit in a month that can bring some, but I don't want to wait that long. We had a frightening experience a week ago, with an improperly labeled icecream treat , and now i'm a nervous wreck. I am wondering if anyone knows anything about ordering epipens by mail or courier from the U.S. or another country? Does anyone order them over the internet? Any ideas? I have tried the U.S. and Canadian consulates.....useless! I would very much appreciate any suggestions anyone may have.....Thank you Lorri

Hi Lorri,

I was recently looking for these on the net since my plan does not cover the epis and I thought I could find a better price. I did find them on some site, and I will search again for you and try to find it. I know how desperate you must feel.

Hi Lorri,

I just found a site that sells the epi-jrs. by mail - it is [url="http://WWW.drugstore.com"]http://WWW.drugstore.com[/url] and the price is $34.00 each. Good luck.

Debbie Thank you so much for all your help....will check it out right now, and let you know what happens. I'm hoping there's no problems with customs...will try to find out any info on that too. Thanks again, Lorri

We have a link to Drugstore.Com on the PeanutAllergy.Com site. Buying from them through PeanutAllergy.Com's link to them gives us a percentage on the non-prescription items so please go to Drugstore.Com from PeanutAllergy.Com. The link is on the sponsor's page [url="http://www.peanutallergy.com/sponsors.htm"]http://www.peanutallergy.com/sponsors.htm[/url]

Drugstore.Com only ships to U.S. addresses at this time. Here is a link to where I found this shipping info. [url="http://www.drugstore.com/help/questions.asp?label=intl"]http://www.drugstore.com/help/questions.asp?label=intl[/url]

Hi Lorri,

I just found another online pharmacy. It is Soma.Com and their number is 1-888-700-7662. Their info says this is a 24 hour, 7 day a week line. you can call them and see if they will ship internationally.

Stay Safe, Deb
