MEDIC ALERT FAQ'S


Should I wear a Medic Alert?
We recommend that all potentially anaphylactic individuals wear Medic Alert identification. In young children, this will serve as a reminder of the child's allergy for caregivers. In adults, coma could prevent self-administration of epinephrine or a description of medication allergy to hospital personnel. The Medic Alert should state the individual's anaphylactic sensitivity and that they carry an epinephrine autoinjector (e.g. Epipen´┐Ż) in order to alert bystanders to look for and administer the device.
