This is great news! Wish they had this available a few months ago when my toddler had to make use of an epinephrine injection. I feel like the epinephrine injection itself caused nearly as much shock to his system as the allergen, since it was a slightly higher dose then his 30lb pound could handle. We love Auvi-Q injectors and their ease of use. I wish insurance would cover them so we could refill next year beyond the initial affordability program. Thanks for posting! What great news this...
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?
@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. We have already received our maximum quantity of Auvi-Q injectors. I do not know if that resets annually or not. I suppose it is something to look into. Sorry to have...
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!
I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more about what's new in the food allergy world for kids. It can be hard to keep up with all of the information out there so hearing from an expert on the latest research is a can't miss opportunity.
