@K8sMom2002 , Thank you. My oldest son (6 years) was really sad when we had to use the epinephrine for his little brother and said, "I was hoping we'd never have to use it." Me too, bud, me too. :'( I guess I didn't mean to imply that there was a time limit, but rather a quantity limit on the Auvi-Q affordability program.

This is great news! Wish they had this available a few months ago when my toddler had to make use of an epinephrine injection.

Hugs on the reaction and having to use epinephrine to begin with! I'd not heard that there was a time limit on Auvi-Q's AffordAbility program. I just checked their website, and I must be missing something, because I didn't see it there. How about starting a new topic so you can share a link about that?

Hey, shared information is what helps ALL of us! And I'd never thought of possible quantity or time limits on the program, so it's good to keep that on my radar. Please, please, keep sharing good questions and thoughts like this -- that's what makes our community SO strong. And I think what your oldest son said about his little brother was sad AND sweet. Way to go for him being such a good big brother!
