In case you missed the big news last week, CVS Health is offering Impax’s Adrenaclick’s authorized epinephrine auto-injector for $109.00 for a twin pack. For so many, this arrives like a knight in shinning armor. After the world realized that the EpiPen® was being sold for over $600/twin pack, it appears this is CVS’s response to a very pressing health crisis: affordable access to life-saving epinephrine. The magic sits over at CVS, as the only pharmacy offering the generic Adrenaclick epinephrine auto-injector at the incredibly low price of $109.00. If you head to a different pharmacy, that lovely low price will not be offered. There is a coupon for Impax’s Generic: click here.
To be clear, many of the headlines called this devise, “the generic EpiPen”. This is false. To help everyone stay on track, the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis ConnectionTeam (FAACT) created an Epinephrine Auto-Injector Options sheet, (see below).
If you need a trainer for the generic Adrenaclick, just visit Impax’s webpage and request a trainer for your device.
Patients may also view a video demonstrating how to use the device.
The public cried out for more alternatives that were cost effective and it appears that CVS was listening!
May all of our days ahead be safe and reaction free and that we all enjoy affordable access to epinephrine auto-injectors.
Disclaimer: I have been a fan of CVS Health since they stopped selling tobacco. Just want to make sure everyone knows this little tidbit. CVS did not pay me to write about them, my hope is that you realize this price option is available and you find the video to demonstrate usage and order yourself a trainer.
