3/21/17 EPIPEN ALTERNATIVES UPDATE

For a while, Maylan-brand Epipens were the only brand of epinephrine auto injector being produced, until other alternatives were developed. Adrenaclick and Auvi-Q epinephrine auto injectors are suitable alternatives, especially since the rise in the price of Maylan-brand EpiPens.

Each 2-Pak comes with an adult injector and a child injector, 0.15mg and 0.3mg. Adrenaclick is roughly $500, but a generic of it is $109.99 at CVS Pharmacy. Auvi-Q is $360 in cash, but free for those insured. Those with an income less than $100,000 a year and no insurance can also get it for free.
