Thank You Walgreens

I have always loved Walgreens for our prescriptions (and their good in-store deals), I mean there is a Walgreens on almost every corner so you never have to be with out your prescription - even on vacation.

Last month Walgreens really impressed me with a letter providing useful information about my childs's EpiPen Jr. (epinephrine) Auto-Injector that we last filled with them.
I thought this was a great extra service. They provided very useful information such as:

  • Always make sure we keep EpiPens at home, school, etc.
  • We should always carry two EpiPen injectors
  • Reminding us to be sure they are stored properly - Not in the refrigerator or in a car
  • And to make sure they are not EXPIRED

All the information in the letter is very important and is a great reminder.

I had already had our EpiPens refilled, just not by Walgreens, unfortunately. With our new insurance we can only fill out "maintenance" medications with a certain pharmacy. But when  we can go to Walgreens, we do. Our "other" pharmacy doesn't give us the same service.

We use Publix pharmacy for our prescriptions. We recently got that letter for our epi jr pens as well. I wonder if it is a new law or something?
