Epi pen

I have been in a lot of pharmacies this week and cannot find any epi pens anywhere. (Epinephrine). For severe allergy reactions to shellfish. Anyone have any hints on this?

I have shown mine to several doctors here over the years. None knew they even existed. I don't believe they are available here...would be happy to be wrong about this.

I think you are right Linda. We had family from Mexico visiting our home and there was panic when wasps appeared.
We explained the epi and they were amazed. Took one home with them.

Never leave home without medications for emergency use, but since you're already there have your family mail you your Epipen by fed ex.
