Don't Jump to Epinephrine Vials if Cost Is an Issue With Auto-Injectors

Expect more questions about epinephrine auto-injectors...due to skyrocketing costs and the new Veta (VEE-tah) Smart Case.

An EpiPen two-pack now costs about $610...Adrenaclick costs about $460...and the generic for Adrenaclick costs about $400.

A generic for EpiPen will hit your shelves soon...but it'll still run about $300. And other alternatives, such as a new epinephrine prefilled syringe, won't hit the market until at least 2017.
