Canadian consular staff in the Philippines said the EpiPen brand is not available in that country but other injectable antihistamine medications are available in pharmacies.


Although the article states this above I don't dare step into waters I don't understand and could never comprehend (politics, immigration, refugees) I imagine there is WAY WAY WAY more to this than just allergies in question. Whatever this families situation I am not in a place to judge or comment but I will say that I am most thankful to be a Canadian,

Thanks for posting alberta.

Thanks for posting, allergies can be scary enough when you have the right tools to care for your child. I can't imagine not having - or not having access (or easy access - whatever it might have been in this situation) to such a simple and quick live saving measure most of us can take forgranted to have.
