The Talking EpiPen and How to Get it for Free (AUVI-Q)
The Talking EpiPen that Could Save Your Life (or at least change it!)
Our doctor introduced us to a new type of epinephrine injector that is life-changing.
This little sucker is called an AUVI-Q.
It’s about the size of an iPhone or a deck of cards – which for those of you used to the traditional EpiPens – you know that size alone is huge. I can slip it into my pocket if I need to, and it fits perfectly in the iPhone holder of my wallet.
But that’s not the greatest part.
It Talks to you!
The greatest part is that it TALKS to you.
No kidding. It literally talks you through every single step – from removing the safety cap, to injecting it into your leg – and even counting to five.
It came with a tester, and I can confidently say that my 6 and 5 year olds can follow the instructions perfectly. And the 3-year-old (the one that may actually need it someday) is also pretty proficient.
While I hope that I’m never in a position where one of the kids has to inject the epinephrine, I am glad to know that they could.
And it brings a whole new level of comfort when I have to leave our youngest with a babysitter.
Or a teacher at preschool.
Or even grandma.
It’s a simple process, with a calm voice to walk you through every single step. And that’s some great peace of mind.
And it’s Free… or close to it!
The makers of AUVI-Q are offering several options for you to receive these for FREE!
Here’s what they say:
- $0 out of pocket for all commercially insured patients including high deductible plans.
- Support for patients who can’t afford their medicines and who do not have commercial or government insurance.
- Direct delivery service ships AUVI-Q directly to your home, and can ensure the best expiration dating for AUVI-Q.
So far we have four free ones, and we’ll be getting more each month so that I can leave one with each grandma, one for home, one for my purse, one for school, etc.
