    Yes, but with most doctors it is probably automafic when you tell them tou are a beekeeper.
    ( more automatic than i am personally comfortable with )
    Started summer of 2013, just another new guy, tinkering with bees.

    All I had to do was tell my primary care physician that I was using bee venom for my arthritis, and he wrote the script without me asking (his wife is a beekeeper)

    I injected myself with epinephrine subcutaneously after a sting (had an allergic reaction in the past) and I think I came close to calamity. Not all venoms have the same antigens and your response to antigens will change over time. Donít use epi unless you are in serious trouble. Take some antihistamine pills and topical antihistamine and steroid cream at the sting site. It is likely that many bad outcomes from allergies are iatrogenic (treatment caused), like a heart attack from an epi injection.
