Live by the EpiPen, die by the EpiPen

The EpiPen is NOT the only game in town. If you want a different pen-type device, you couldtry the generic Adrenaclick, which is reported to cost as little as $140 with coupons. Here is some info: http://adrenaclick.com/

Another choice would be to use an old-fashioned syringe and draw the epinephrine from a vial or ampule, or inject from a prefilled syringe as anyone who uses insulin for diabetes will tell you, this is not terribly difficult to learn. I have seen a recent FB post saying this costs only $10. I am not sure I believe that, but am sure it’s well under $100. Here is a picture of a vial: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Epinephrine-ampule.JPG , an ampule: http://www.chimedsupply.com/Hospira-Epinephrine-Injection-USP-1-1000-1-mg-mL-Glass-Ampule.html , and a prefilled syringe: http://www.bemedsupply.com/Epinephrine-Abboject-syringe-10ml-p/1-286280.htm
