This summer I was vacationing with my sister's family. My sister wanted to take my daughter with her to a children's museum. Since she was only going there and their wouldn't be any food involved, I didn't want to send her with all of the meds. But I did want to send along the epi-pens. I looked around for a small container for them. I had my eye-glass case. It's a hard cover case. Two epi's fit in there perfectly, nice and snug. Now, even in Katie's medicine bag, I keep the epi's in the eye-glass case. I wouldn't do it for a school, or day care, since there's no label on it, saying what is in there. But for us, it's great.

That's what I use, too! Actually, I use 2 - a hard plastic one that fits inside a vinyl one with a hook for attaching it to belt loops, etc. I got them both at Wal-Mart for about $5 each and they have been wonderful! I can fit 2 Epi's, a bunch of Benadryl chews and the Epi instructions.

That's what I use too, mines vinyl, and I bought a red one (bright) and I even took a permanent marker and wrote EPI-PEN EMERGENCY USE FOR CAMERON, I wrote it up and down. Mine also has the belt hook on it, I can fit 2 epis and a trial size benedyl it it, perfect for my purse, since he's always with me and very accessible. I only paid $1.00 for mine at a Dollar Tree.

Cam's Mom,
Where did you find the trial size Benadryl? Is it a liquid or pill? My dd still needs the liquid and I just bought travel size Scope bottles I am washing out to put in her eye glass case/epi pouch (great idea everyone).

We got some trial size bottles of Benadryl from our pediatrician. Unfortunately my son got his first ever dose of Benadryl this fall and went crazy...acted like he had a nightterror but it was the middle of the day. So now I am carrying a huge bottle of Atarax. :-(

HI Jeancbpugh,
Have your doctor split the big bottle into a perscription for two small for same co-pay you have a bottle for home or car and one to carry. They have 4oz size bottles. Your pharmacist may even be able to print another label and give you a small bottle to pour some into now.
Good luck.

I found some great small plastic bottles of various sizes at EMS, a sporting good and camping store. It is with the camping supplies. The smallest bottle is about 2 inches high and at most 1 inch in diameter. It would hold about 3-4 tsp. of benedryl.
