We're preparing to begin the new year, so what better way to start 2021 off than by making conscious, healthy decisions? One of the quickest and most effective steps you can take is making sure your epinephrine is up to date.
Epinephrine, of course, is the life-saving medication inside the auto-injector and has a shelf life of 18 months. That's why I do my best to keep the medication in as safe & stable of environment as possible while making sure it's up to date. If you aren't sure where to check you expiration date, our FAQs show a detailed how-to on this.
I received a friendly reminder by text in early 2020 from the pharmacy that it's still possible to renew my Auvi-Q prescription remotely and have my new medication delivered to my apartment.
Have you considered Auvi-Q?
For those of you not familiar with the Auvi-Q, it's an auto-injector from Kaléo that is becoming more and more accessible - as pointed out in a great blog from Nutrimom. For qualifying families, it's available for little to no out-of-pocket cost. In my case, I paid $25 to renew my prescription.
I thought a helpful follow-up to her post would be to record my experience ordering my next set of Auvi-Q's so anyone that does decide it's the right option for their family can know what to expect when getting on the phone.
Manage Your Auto-Injector with the EpiCenter App
We debuted our EpiCenter App in mid 2020. One of the many helpful features in the software is an epinephrine reminder. With it you'll receive up dates when your expiration date is approaching to help you keep your epinephrine auto-injectors up to day.
