So, I go to get new Epi-pens for Ryan because two of them expired. Expired Epi-pens are a Good Thing, because that means there was no anaphylaxis. So yay for that.
Anyway, he's supposed to get the 2-pack of Epis but I renewed the wrong script (from the allergist, not the pediatrician). So I only got one Epi for the price of two ($25). And, and, and! The stupid thing expires in September!
So instead of getting two Epis for $25 that would be good for 10-15 months, I got one that's good for 2 months. Also, we're down to three total and with our annual trip to the Outer Banks coming up, we really need at least four, so that means I'll have to pay for one out of pocket because the insurance will only cover prescriptions once every 30 days! (head spinning goes here)
It's my own fault, because I should have checked the expire date while at the pharmacy. But it's still so annoying--if this were any other kind of product purchased at any other kind of store I'd be able to exchange it for one with an expiration date further out. But I can't because it's a prescription.
