Issues getting Epi?

  1. Anybody having issues getting Epi? Traditionally we have an rx called into the local pharmacy under the camp name for our stock Epi pens. Talking to the pharmacist, was told that they no longer can issue the rx to a camp or school, but needs to be in a persons name...
    We also get stock ventolin and ciprodex under the camp name. Haven't heard if this is included or not. Hoping to find out more tomorrow...
    Have you been able to get Epipens? Are you have to change or decrease the amount you might typically have?

    You will need to use a supply service such as Henry Schein or Moore Medical. Our local pharmacy's started bulking at giving us stock a few years ago. In a pinch just send it through under your name and pay camp cash. Walmart wouldn't issue us stock, but would sell me, with a script made out for me, 6 albuterol MDI no questions asked.
