Just wanted to put this out there in case people weren't aware. I would reccomend anyone that deals with bees to have one on hand. I don't have bad reactions but you NEVER know when you might all the sudden have a reaction. If you go to the epi pen website you can get your co pay down to nothing so there's no reason NOT to tell your doc to write you a script for it. https://www.epipen.com/en/copay-offer I am in no way affiliated with epi pen or epi pen jr. Also there is another epinephrine auto injector but they can't just substitute it if the doc writes epi pen so be aware there is a cheaper option but not considered a generic sub yet. Bee safe!

From the website:

Patient instructions*: Present your card along with a valid prescription for the EpiPen 2-Pak or EpiPen Jr 2-Pak.

I missed the not, sorry. No reason not to tell ...since it would pretty much free just wanted to save some money for people or get them a product they normally wouldn't get because it's so expensive

I had a prescription filled based on all the advice to keep one on hand. I have never had an allergic reaction before. That being said, I was shocked when I went to pay and the cost to me was $250! On top of that, the epi-pen has a 1 year shelf-life. Needless to say, I have not refilled the script, and am carrying around an expired epi-pen. I will give the coupon a try, but am a little concerned since it says it covers cost up to $100. Is there not a generic epinephrine auto-injector on the market? I wish the city of Dallas thought better of it's police and firefighters and provided better insurance.

Sounds like Dallas needs a better insurance plan! But then again I don't have any insurance currently but utilize the VA for my health care...there is another epinephrine auto injector but from what I understand from my wife (a pharmacy tech) it's not a generic substitute yet for the epi pen. Meaning if the doctor writes the prescription for epi pen they can't give you the other brand. But check it out. https://webrebate.trialcard.com/coupon/EpinephrinePortal/ http://www.epinephrineautoinject.com from my understanding the doctor needs to write it for epinephrine auto injector since epi pen is a brand. Looks like this one says up to 300 for cash customers. This is what I have on hand and I believe it's cost whoesale is a hundred and something so it should be totally covered.



Looks like that one is the generic for adrenaclick....what a original name lol.
