Stock Epipen's

Published

How does everyone get their prescriptions for their stock Epi's?  I work at a charter school in Florida and the doctor who used to write our prescription moved out of state.  I have checked with local providers and they will not write the prescription.

Maybe check with your county department of public health. One of the doctor's that work for the county here writes our stock epi orders.

Check with you state association, they may have an MOU with one of the chains. We have ConvenientMD in New England. ALso there may be a parent MD who is willing.

I don’t live in FL so I’m not sure how this works but we have to have a Medical Director and he writes our scripts. He also is the one who wrote the policy for the standing order. Did you ask your supervisor?
