Got EpiPen? Mylan Has an App For That!

Anyone with food allergies understands the necessity to always carry epinephrine- always! Being proactive will always keep you one step ahead as far as your health but having a safety net and additional information is even better. This way, you can be armed with your lifesaving device as well as allergy-related information.

Mylan Specialty has announced that they now have an EpiPen App - yup, I said it, I shared it! My EpiPlan (trademarked) App reinforces Mylan's commitment to awareness and preparedness for a life-threatening allergic reaction (aka anaphylaxis). This is a new, free (yes, FREE) app that is available on iTunes and GooglePlay.
Thought you knew everything about your EpiPen? This new app can help you by
  • Learning - You can never have too much knowledge. You will get articles on living with potentially, life-threatening food allergies, travel tips and bunches more. 
  • Tracking- You can keep track and share your personal allergen profile, register your EpiPen (you haven't done this? You get some really cool stuff when you do!) and you will get reminders when your EpiPen is going to expire. 
  • Training- Are you unsure how to administer an EpiPen or need to show someone else? This app will also has a step-by-step video on how to use an EpiPen. 

It's great to see Mylan Specialty continually striving to stay up to date with technology to get us important information so quickly. The fact that they care enough to continue to give us these free goodies is nothing less than supportive. Thanks Mylan!
