Re: Eppi pen or not?
My allergist ordered me an auvi-q, which is epinephrine. It cost me nothing, but was ordered due to a reaction I had and as a precaution in case I ever have a worse reaction. As a teacher, we are trained ever year on how to use both types of pens. These are used when someone has a reaction bad enough to stop their breathing. I wish we were like so many other countries where these are sold over the counter and don't require a prescription. It is probably a good idea to have everyone that comes near the hives sign a paper regarding no suing you if they step in a hole, trip and break a leg, or get stung. Florida has a law that requires a sign to be posted in clear view that will protect farmers.
