Since Mylan has decided to sky rocket the prices of their EpiPen, I'm looking for new epinephrine injector. Anyone know of any that are just as good if not better than EpiPen that are also affordable?
If you have private insurance, Mylan is doing $0 copays for the EpiPens with a coupon. Just google "EpiPen coupon"
My daughter's doctor prescribed the generic version of Adrenaclick (info here - http://epinephrineautoinject.com/) She has the .15 mg version which is the equivalent amount of medicine a Epi-pen Jr. When this generic version came out last year, our insurance company dropped epi-pen from its formulary and only covers this generic version. I have used both Epi Pen JR & this generic one on allergic reactions and they worked the same, the generic has a different autoinjector and one extra cap to remove. My insurance covers this as any other generic med, so we pay $15 for a 2-pack. We are in the US.
Thank you! I definitely will talk to my doctor about putting me on that. I just can't afford an epi-pen because of Mylan's decision to make them cost an arm and a leg. This sounds like it would be perfect for me!
