Yes, we STILL have nearly a month left before school begins. Don’t worry! But if you’re even thinking about preparing for the upcoming school year, be sure to include epinephrine on your To-Do List.
First, double check the expiration dates on your epinephrine supply.
Second, make sure you have at least two, preferably three sets of epinephrine auto-injectors that are active (one for school, one for home, and a mobile set to bring with you on-the-go).
Third, renew your prescriptions now to make sure they are still current (and to give you time to contact your allergist if they’re not) as well as to avoid that last minute panic before the beginning of school.
Finally, now is a great time to take advantage of the no co-pay promotions from the makers of both EpiPens and Auvi-Q. Both companies have issued a $0 co-pay program from now until December 2013. Now’s a great time to restock your epinephrine for free! Program details below:

**As always, it’s important to discuss the various auto-injector options and which is best for your particular needs with your doctor.**
