CVS Is Offering a Cheaper Alternative Epinephrine Injector

     As previously discussed in this blog, epinephrine injectors are often very expensive. They also can be life-saving in the case of a dangerous life threatening allergic reaction.
     As is being publicized, CVS is offering a less expensive alternative. It is a generic equivalent of a prescription epinephrine injector called Adrenaclick. They are going to be offered at $109 for a twin pack. Here is a webpage from CVS about these. Note that the doctor's office will need to write something specific ("epinephrine auto-injector") to qualify for this. When your child who needs an epinephrine injector needs a refill or is getting a new prescription, ask your doctor about this less expensive alternative.
