Your Dr can write you a prescription for any legal pharmaceutical(s) as long as he/she has a patient-provider relationship. Usually where people go foul is how they handle it after that. I carry Benadryl, Pepcid, and both adult and Jr EpiPen with my at all times. I usually do not have any reaction to stings but I do not know about my grandkids or other family. Being a former firefighter/EMT I have used the pen but EMS was on the way. If someone feels they need to use the EpiPen they should have EMS on the way, talking to EMS or be on the way to the nearest Urgent Care. If it does not work or works slowly you could be in a world of hurt if you are not already on the way to a higher level of support. This type of shock can take you out faster than you can say Aunt Betty.
