Just a quick reminder to all that EpiPens, like most other medications, should be kept at room temperature. Of course, this poses a challenge over the summer. So remember to take them with you from the car and keep them next to your water bottles at the beach. Or, as one reader suggested below, plop one into a small cooler bag. Since reading that, I’ve been sticking our EpiPens in an insulated lunch bag with ice or a cooler pack. (Thank you again!)
We really tuned into this problem over the winter while skiing. Thankfully, my son’s ski instructor thought to hold his EpiPens in the inside pocket of her jacket to keep them from freezing throughout the day.
I love easy, clever solutions!
