I ran across a discussion in one of my allergy Facebook groups the other day in which members were discussing the AUVI-Q epinephrine auto-injector. (Most of us are more familiar with the brand Epi-Pen.) The AUVI-Q is an alternate brand of epinephrine auto-injector used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, in people who are at risk for or have a history of serious allergic reactions.
This brand boasts features such as a retractable needle, voice instructions, and a two-second countdown. The most exciting part of the conversation is that people were talking about getting the auto-injector for $0 out-of-pocket. So- I thought I’d pass along the information here. Please conduct your own research and talk to your prescriber for more information about which auto-injector is best for you.
