    I used this pen on 12/8/08 after having a allergic reaction with some other medication. It did slow down the effects of the reaction and was very helpful. I still had to go to the E/R for more treatment which is recomended but I will never leave the house without it.

    I use an epipen all the time. Sometimes 4 a month. I carry two at all time! It really helps me with my throat, it swells very aften. I have a medical condition where I swell in hives all over and the drs cant do anything for it. Thank God for the epipens.

    A restaurant placed pickles on a sandwich I had ordered. I am allergic to vinegar. My throat was very scratchy then I realized I ate the pickle and 4 more were there. After that I gave myself the epi pen. Had the allergy since I was 3 and at 30 was the 1st time I used it. I was scared, but it didn't hurt. It was very easy, but I did get very shaky after. I had my 1 year old glad a total stranger sat with her and talked me through everything. Glad I always have it in my purse! It truly did save my life!

    I have been severly allergic to peanuts since I was a baby. My first serious case of anaphalaxis was when I was 12 and had eaten a dish containing peanuts. If it wasn't for the EpiPen, I would not have lived past the age of 12.
