Our son is not anaphylactic to soy, but he is anaphylactic to peanuts. So he has to carry an EpiPen with him wherever he goes. It’s time to refill the prescription, and apparently the costs have just been going up and up.
Tonight I stumbled across a link that gives a $100 discount for EpiPen in all of it’s derivatives. Unfortunately it expires the end of this year (29 more days), but in researching it, it seems to be recreated each year, as it appears that this has been going on since at least 2012.
So, if you have anaphylaxis in your family, hopefully this will help ease the financial burden of having EpiPens around.
I'm trying to track allergen information for every restaurant that we eat at. With my son's soy allergy, each time we eat at a restaurant, it can take up to 30 minutes to figure out what he can eat. Especially since most restaurants don't accurately represent their usage of soy.
We're tracking what soy free (including soybean oil free) foods our son can eat at all restaurants we go to. If you've got a soy allergy in your family and have any information you can share, please contact us.
