Epi-pens have been a highly discussed issue lately with the cost being increased. The cost of something that could mean life or death is such a hard thing to consider. Many people have not been able to carry a epi-pen due to cost or they have expired ones. This also means that a situation that could be delt with quickly then seen by provider will result in a pricey ER visit to seek treatment. This also makes delay in treatment. To have the risk of anaphalaxis to something that is common in restaurants or the environment causes great anxiety.
