People with Severe Allergies Now Have an Affordable Alternative to the EpiPen
For years, if you suffered from severe allergies, EpiPen was the best-known option to prevent anaphylaxis. Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, released a generic alternative in December 2016, however, there is an even more affordable option on the market.
As reported by Consumer Reports, Adrenaclick had long been a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, but a two-pack was still priced at $300. A recent deal with the manufacturer has brought the price for a two-pack down to $110 at CVS and CVS-managed Target pharmacies. If you pair that with this $100 discount coupon, the final price tag goes down to $10. The coupon allows you to buy up to 3 two-packs at that price.
The coupon is not valid with Medicare, Medicaid, or other federal or state insurance, but you can still use it. Instruct your pharmacist to not run the purchase through your insurance. People who don’t live near a CVS or CVS-managed Target Pharmacy can present this coupon to their regular pharmacy to receive the $100 discount, which according to GoodRx.com, retails for around $200 at both Walgreens and Rite Aid.
If you have never used Adrenaclick before, ask your pharmacist to train you on how to use the injector before you leave. A video is also available on the manufacturer’s website.
