When my dd had her reaction back in Feb., the E.R. doctor did tell us that a prescription was NOT required. I did confirm this with the pharmacist at Shopper's Drug Mart, because I wanted to be able to tell my daughter that she did not need a prescription, this way she knows she can just get one over the counter.

Not that there will ever be a need, as the E.R. doctor gave us a script for 4 epi-pens with 100 repeats each!! (1 epi-pen to carry, 1 at home, 1 at school and 1 at the dance studio, where she practically lives :lol: ) . I guess the dr.'s reasoning is this way we can just buy them every year and not bother with formalities like going to our family doctor's office every time, given the nature of the medication. Did anybody else get a prescription with that many repeats?

AnnaMarie, it was a great idea to start this thread as now we have the official answer.

Karen, a suggestion perhaps to make a sticky post with Alexandre Garcia's reply, as I feel it is very important. (Thanks!)

What an awesome ER doctor. No, I've never had anyone give me that many repeats!
