    Question Are Epi-pen Junior's Available in DR?

    Can anyone tell me whether you can get Epi Pen Junior's in the DR and if you need a prescription.

    Many thanks

    I've never even seen an Epi Pen in this country. Good question!

    Haven't seen Epi Pens here in 7 years, but really haven't looked that hard. Bought a handful of adrenaline (epinephrine) ampules and syringes (very inexpensively) and have them handy. No Rx necessary here.

    Poster DV8 will probably know the answer to this. You can PM her.

    Here is a link to a Pharmacy with a real Pharmacist who should also be able to tell you:

    An epinephrine auto-injection system for cases of severe allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock. Bee stings, severe immediate food allergies, etc. The regular epinephrine ampules and syringes work fine as long as you know and use the proper dose.

    Thank you everyone for your responses.

    I will send DV8 a PM but if they don't sell them then it's good to know you can get the ampules and syringes cheaply without prescription. It's for a child so only need 0.15mg

    Thanks again,
    Daydream.
