Currently, epinephrine is the one thing that can help manage the symptoms of an anaphylactic reaction until medical help arrives. While Auvi-Q is back on the market EpiPens still tend to be the prescribed medication. Recently I read an article about epinephrine being delivered in a nasal spray format. I am watching this closely. Having a daughter who does not carry a purse and has a fear of needles, and a son who must think these are available at a vending machine because they fall out of his pocket daily an EpiPen carrier is critical.
If the medicine carrying case is not visible, I would recommend having something that brings awareness to the location of meds such as these buttons. I also like an emergency card with contact information and medical instructions.
