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?
I have a medical condition that makes it dangerous for me to have any medicine with epinephrine in it. Does anyone else have this problem, and if yes, what do you do about it?
If you get an epipen prescription is it definite you are going to use it and when do you use it or is it possible you can have it and never get to use it? What kind of reactions would make u get the script and should you look out for before you use it?
In the Epinen, there is an additive called Sulfites, and i am allergic to the product. In my case, should i take the chance to inject if I really have to? I am very careful on what I eat, I'm very limited in my choices of food, so shouldn't i still be careful in this case also? I wish they would remove sulfites out of wine, I would sure love to have a glass lol.Thank you.
Every time I see my doctor he ask if I am still allergic to coconut. I am not gonna eat & find out. Then get yell at by the hospital. I am tired of it every appointment.

When the First Responders (Firefighters here) arrived I handed them my medic alert card with all my allergies and told them that I had administered an epipen prior to their arrival. They started questioning me and giving me grief as to why I would have injected myself when this medication wasn't on my list of allergies. I was so frustrated… read more
I have been sick for early 12 years. I have so many food intolerances including gluten, sugar alcohols, and even intolerances to facial creams, sunscreens, and just about every topical lotions that absorb into my skin. Recently I purchased a L’Oreal product that was gluten-free and fragrance free but I still broke out in hives and a burning rash. My primary care placed me on prednisone. What in the world is going on with my body? The 25+ doctors over the years have no idea. I’m beyond… read more
I keep all nut products up from where he can reach them, however that still makes me nervous when he comes over. I worry that maybe he might touch something that does have nuts and I just didn't know. Another question I have is at what age should they know when to ask about nuts in food or before they touch food with nuts in them? If I should not be on this site just calmly let me know and I will get off. Thank you
Hello everyone. I'm 22, reactive to dairy, dairy derivatives, tree nuts, shellfish, aspartame, tomatoes, and now bananas are hit or miss....mostly miss.
Besides that, I have a lot of other random allergies. Basically, this translates to a lot of benadryl taken often.
I used to use benadryl as a little kid food :'(pretty related allergies, but I don't recall having many side effects. Now however, I have irritability, brain fog, drowsiness (though that's to be expected), forgetfulness, and… read more
I recently started having a bad reaction to grilled chicken any time I ate it. I'm not sure if its the chicken or what the chicken is fed. I'm afraid to try it again after the last episode. Any suggestions?
